LOVE AND RAGE: The Path of Liberation Through Anger
A Zoom Webinar Event

presented by KPFA Radio
Love and Rage; The Path of Liberation Through Anger is a deep dive into how we are shaped by our perceptions of anger in a culture marked by dividedness and contempt. Through mindfulness and compassion-based practices, Lama Rod Owens shows us how the power of rage can be transformed into a force of healing in our fractured world.
Lama Rod Owens is a Buddhist minister, author, activist, yoga instructor and authorized Lama, or Buddhist teacher, in the Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism. He is considered one of the leaders of this generation of Buddhist teachers. He holds a Master of Divinity degree in Buddhist Studies from Harvard Divinity School and is a co-author of Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love and Liberation. Owens is the co-founder of Bhumisparsha, a Buddhist tantric practice and study community. He has been published in Buddhadharma, Lion’s Roar, Tricycle and The Harvard Divinity Bulletin. He offers talks, retreats and workshops in more than seven countries.
His blend of formal Buddhist training and life experience has given him a unique ability to understand, relate and engage with those around him in a way that’s spacious and sincere. His gentle, laid-back demeanor and willingness to bare his heart and soul makes others want to do the same. Even when seated in front of a room, he’s next to you, sharing his stories and struggles with an openness, vulnerability and gentle humor that makes you genuinely feel good about who you are, with all your flaws. You’re lovable and deserving of happiness and joy. He invites you into the cross sections of his life as a Black, queer male, born and raised in the South, and heavily influenced by the church and its community.
This webinar promises to be an unusually frank, candid, and politically challenging event.
