Stress Less: Letting go of anger and resentment
Wednesdays | 10:30am - 11:45pm | January 11 - February 22
at Unitarian Universalist of Surprise
with KMC Phoenix Resident Teacher and Buddhist monk, Gen Kelsang Tabkay
Do you ever find yourself in situations in which it seems impossible to keep a happy mind? Even after getting out of an unhealthy relationship or a bad situation, do you still find yourself tormented by old resentments that continue to burn, even years later? If so, then these classes are for you!
In these classes, we will explore tried and tested methods for letting go of, not repressing, anger and resentment, without taking it out on others. The practice of patient acceptance, when combined with wisdom and compassion, is the most effective way to work with our unhappy feelings, learn from them, and then heal our mind and our heart so that we can finally get some peace. Each class will include teachings and guided meditations.
“There is no evil greater than anger, and no virtue greater than patience. Therefore, I should strive in various ways to become familiar with the practice of patience.” - Shantideva, quoted in How to Solve Our Human Problems
