Many of us struggle with anger and aggression. We seem to be surrounded by this negative energy. Sometimes we are aware of our anger but often we are out of touch with how anger manifests in most parts of our lives. How do we understand that anger is actually an important teacher for us? Dharma teacher Lama Rod Owens will teach how to work with this energy in your practice, transforming anger into peace.
Open to Everyone.
Program Price $15.00.
Lama Rod Owens

His gentle, laid-back demeanor and willingness to bare his heart and soul makes others want to do the same. Even when seated in front of a room, he’s next to you, sharing his stories and struggles with an openness vulnerability and gentle humor that makes you genuinely feel good about who you are. With all your flaws and foibles, you’re lovable and deserving of happiness and joy. He invites you into the cross sections of his life as a Black, queer male, born and raised in the South, and heavily influenced by the church and its community.
