ABOUT THIS EVENT:
Considered one of the leaders of a current generation of Buddhist teachers, Lama Rod Owens is a Buddhist minister, author, activist, and an authorized Lama—or Buddhist teacher—in the Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism. Through his writings, teachings, and travels Lama Rod invites everyone into his life intersections as a Black, queer male who was born and raised in the South, and heavily influenced by the church and its community. Key to his work today, and informed by his experiences, is his exploration of love, but also an emotion that we rarely speak about—rage.
White supremacy in the United States has long necessitated that Black rage be suppressed, repressed, or denied, often as a means of survival—a literal matter of life and death. For Lama Rod, speaking about emotion, both universally, but also from a unique point of view as a Black man, is both healing and liberatory.
Lama Rod shares a potent vision of anger and rage that acknowledges and honors their power as vehicles for radical social change and enduring spiritual transformation.
Join Lama Rod Owens for a conversation exploring how unmetabolized anger—and the grief, hurt, and transhistorical trauma beneath it—needs to be explored, respected, and fully embodied to heal from heartbreak and walk the path of liberation. Exploring and loving our anger can set us free.
