Fierce Love: Honoring and Transforming Anger

with Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, Robert Thurman, Ph.D., Barbara Fredrickson, Ph.D., host Alejandro Chaoul-Reich, Ph.D.

A live online conversation with renowned teacher, scholar and author Robert Thurman, Ph.D.; distinguished researcher and author Barbara Fredrickson, Ph.D.; Tibetan meditation master Geshe Tenzin Wangyal; and host Alejandro Chaoul-Reich, Ph.D.

How do we balance the importance of honoring anger when it arises and not feeding it in a way that causes harm? Is it possible to separate out the wisdom aspects of anger, such as boundary-setting and clear-seeing, from its destructive side? What does it mean to transform anger into love, on a practical level? This lively dialogue will explore working with the energy of anger from the perspective of Tibetan Buddhist and Bön spirituality, alongside Western psychological approaches. The conversation will also explore both scientific and spiritual understandings on cultivating love and positive states of mind. Central to the inquiry will be the question of how to work with emotion that arises without suppressing or acting out in destructive ways, as well as how to apply antidotes that bring about transformative shifts in our energy and emotions.
