In this session, we explore the debilitating nature of anger through the lens of Seneca's writings. Contrary to what society may sometimes depict, anger is not a badge of strength but a chain that holds us back from reaching our full potential. Through meditation and contemplation, we address the primal, relentless, and contagious nature of anger. We examine how, even though we may not display outward aggression, the simmering rage within can be equally toxic and detrimental to ourselves and those around us. By embracing Seneca's insights, we learn to recognize and release our pent-up anger, paving the way for emotional mastery and a fulfilling life. This lesson serves as a turning point, encouraging participants to move away from the self-imposed limitations of anger and towards a more serene, aware, and harmonious existence.
