Anger: Wisdom for Cooling the Flames by Thich Nhat Hanh

Wisdom for Cooling the Flames by Thich Nhat HanhI just re-read Thich Nhat Hanh’s Anger: Wisdom for Cooling the Flames (which I first read in 2003).

I highly recommend this book, whether or not you are angry. We are all angry at times and this book provides the tools for coping with your own anger and helping friends and famliy deal with their anger.

Here’s the Table of Contents:

Introduction

One: Consuming Anger
Two: Putting Out the Fire of Anger
Three: The Language of True Love
Four: Transformation
Five:Compassionate Communication
Six: Your Heart Sutra
Seven: No Enemies
Eight: David and Angelina: the Habit Energy of Anger
Nine: Embracing Anger With Mindfulness
Ten: Mindful Breathing
Eleven: Restoring the Pure Land

Appendix A: Peace Treaty
Appendix B: The Five Mindfulness Trainings
Appendix C: Guided Meditations for Looking Deeply and Releasing Anger
Appendix D: Deep Relaxation

I will write more on this book a bit later.
