“You can transform anger from blaming others to connecting with what is important to you,” says Mala’e.  “Although it can be one of the most painful emotions, anger serves an important purpose, and we can use it to serve life.”  In this talk, we will explore the steps to understanding and expressing anger nonviolently, so no one gets hurt.
