On the Other Side of Anger Is …


From the Practice

Can we have a conversation with our anger?

Why does anger want our attention?

What if we viewed our anger as precious and beautiful, as a protector, instead of feeling shame about it?

What does anger need from you?

Our anger is grief, our anger is fear, our anger is pain, but ultimately our anger is love.

This guided contemplation was from the RITA Summit (Resilience in the Anthropocene) organized by the Loka Initiative. All panel discussions and practices from the 3 day online RITA Summit can be viewed here.
