Lecture no. 20 from the course: Practicing Mindfulness: An Introduction to Meditation

Anger—Cooling the Fires of Irritation

Taught by Professor Mark W. Muesse | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Health,Fitness & Nutrition Courses

This lecture discusses the challenges of dealing with anger and ways to disarm it using the skills you've studied. Reflect on our cultural predisposition to either suppress anger or to express it thoughtlessly, and a third way offered by mindfulness, of nonjudgmental observation, acceptance, and the mental spaciousness to choose your response.
