Join us for an insightful event with Lama Rod Owens to learn how self love and compassion can help us use anger more constructively.
About this event
How can we channel our anger in positive ways?
At this event, Lama Rod Owens will share his experiences in exploring the anger he has felt at societal injustice and his experience growing up as a gay, black man in southern USA. Lama Rod has spent years studying Buddhist wisdom and learning how to make space for his anger. He has found that anger is in fact protecting and indicating the presence of deep wounds; and finding space to be with those wounds in all their discomfort is the key to using anger with control and wisdom to benefit others.

Lama Rod has developed a series of practices for self-care, having understood that hate flourishes when we have a lack of empathy for ourselves. At this event, he will explore how we can provide a safe space for the “shadow” or more difficult aspects of ourselves, in order to find true liberation.

The event will take place on Zoom at 7pm London time (GMT).
