Yoga for Anger Management
with Swami Jnaneswariananda
January 19 - 24, 2020
Anger is one of the most common and destructive emotions of the mind. Anger may give us a sense of power, but it undermines the happiness we find with ourselves and with others.
In this 5 day course we will look and the reasons for anger, how to manage the emotion when it arises and, finally, how to conquer the root of anger and change our habits of reacting into a habit of responding constructively to trying situations.
