Hold your anger with mindfulness

In our own ways, we all struggle with anger. I watched a clip this week on You Tube of Ram Dass interviewing a well known Buddhist monk (Thich Nach Hahn) about the way to "hold" anger. Holding anger with mindfulness allows the anger to "be" without it becoming toxic. Instead of trying to avoid anger, what if we held it–like a mother holds a child–and allowed it its place without allowing it to consume us or those around us?

Here’s part of the interview.
