If you struggle with intense irritability or angry outbursts, you may feel like your reactions are beyond your control.

First, you’ll learn to disengage from your anger by pausing to be mindful when anger is happening. Second, you’ll discover ways to cool your anger using meditative practices to nurture kindness and compassion towards yourself and others. And third, you’ll find tips for practicing mindfulness to transform your understanding and realize your anger is not an identity, a defect, or a permanent condition. These three practical and easy-to-use approaches to anger management have a strong basis in both ancient and modern traditions. With this book as your guide, you can finally overcome the tumultuous thoughts, feelings, and reactions that have been holding you back in life.
