Developing an Intolerance to Anger

A Buddhist Perspective

With Buddhist Nun, Kelsang Kalden

Saturday, February 25, 1-4pm

Virginia Beach Central Library

About this Meditation Workshop:

Stress, irritation, frustration and anger are common experiences in modern life. These painful states of mind can easily arise when we encounter challenging situations and difficult people.

If anger is not recognized early on it becomes a poison that destroys our happiness and can interfere with our relationships. This revealing workshop will introduce techniques for overcoming anger in all its forms from mild irritation or impatience to bad temper and rage.

Anger takes many forms from mild irritation or annoyance to lingering resentment, bad temper and even rage, but it is always painful and destructive. Buddha taught simple techniques to deal with our own and others’ anger. Through meditation and other practices, it is possible to recognize, and gradually reduce the frequency and intensity of our anger, and eventually eradicate altogether this destructive habit from our mind, helping us to experience the peace and freedom that we all long for. This afternoon meditation workshop will consist of two sessions with a 30-minute break in-between.

Each session will include a guided meditation and a talk. No previous experience is necessary; everyone is welcome.


As a student of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso,  Kelsang Kalden has been studying and practicing Kadampa Buddhist for twenty-five years and is an ordained American Buddhist nun.
