Love and Rage – The Path of Liberation Through Anger – Lama Rod Owens interviewed by Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz : an online video.
All of us have many reasons to be angry and even enraged in this fractured world we are living in. Come listen to Lama Owens and participate in a discussion about how we practice with “negative” emotions as an aspect of seeking social justice and healing for all beings.
Lama Rod Owens is an author, activist, African American gay man and authorized lama in the Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism who explores spiritual practices that transform anger and rage into a force of healing in this world.
Our Monday night programs begin with zazen (meditation) followed by a devotional service and dharma talk, group discussion, practice circle or retreat night. There are no membership requirements to participate. We invite donations to support the room rental, visits by teachers, and other sangha activities. Valley Streams Zen Sangha is dedicated to the study of Buddha’s teaching and the practice of meditation. We invite newcomers and experienced Zen students to join us.
