The Antidote to Anger

Dealing with Disagreements and Conflicts in Daily Life

Cost: $10 (Free for Members)

Patience is an inner strength that enables us to accept and grow from whatever life throws at us. Daily life is filled with opportunities to practice patience. Without cultivating patience, we remain vulnerable to anxiety and frustration and will find it difficult to maintain peaceful relationships with others. Anger is a deluded state of mind that only causes problems and suffering. In this series, we will learn what true patience is and how we can apply it as a powerful antidote to frustration, irritation and anger.
