Sowing Seeds of Peace: The Transformation of Anger

During these divisive times, anger in the public square affects every aspect of our life together, usually as obstacle but also as opportunity.  What do the Buddhist and Shambhala teachings have to offer us in how to work with anger, our own and others?  Drawing from the timeless teachings of warriorship from the Indian master Shantideva and from the ever-current terma of Shambhala, this one-day program investigates anger, its felt qualities and its inherent wisdom, and identifies ways of transforming anger into seeds of peace.  

Through guided meditations, talks, and breakouts, we will explore the ways anger hurts everyone it touches and identify what tender wisdom lies at its core.  

This program is for everyone, no matter what level of Buddhist practice.
