From the back cover:
For many Buddhists, anger is often thought of as a root cause of suffering and last, negative repercussions. In American culture at large, anger—particularly among people of color—is delegitimizes and demonized and can even be dangerous….
What is needed, says Owens, is a relationship to the heartbreak of anger that is embodied, nondestructive, and deeply healing for all. Here he offers personal insights, stories, as well as Buddhist teachings and meditations for tapping into anger’s liberating potential.
The book includes practices and commentary. It is written from the perspective of a gay, Black American man.
