The experience of anger can be a signal, awakening one to the fact that something is wrong. As such, it can include a temporary feeling of power and strength. If prolonged longer than needed, however, it is one of the most destructive forces in our lives and in the lives of those around us. Anger is a habit of mind that can be transmuted into discernment and clarity. Understanding the energy of anger -- and its roots of pain, fear, and hurt -- requires great compassion.
During our day together, we will explore how to work with both calming and wisdom practices to free the heart from anger. In learning about and encouraging a wise attitude, patience, acceptance, and investigation, we become able to respond with care and interest instead of reacting only out of conditioning. We develop our capacity to observe anger without either pushing it away or entangling ourselves within it.
This retreat is appropriate for beginners as well as experienced meditators and will include specific instructions, guided practice, and time for questions and discussion. Everyone is welcome.
This program will not be recorded. Full and partial scholarships are available up to 72 hours before the start of the program.
Note: At check-in, participants will be asked to volunteer for a short period of mindful work during the retreat—a “yogi job.” Yogi jobs enable the smooth running of the retreat and offer an opportunity to practice alongside other retreat participants.
