Patience with Anger and Aggression – As Told By Pema Chödrön

I usually don’t repost long pieces of writing by others here, but I am making an exception. Things have been rough lately. Yes, it’s true, not even your yoga teacher has it all figured out…we are human after all. One of the things I struggle with is patience. One of the other things I struggle with is keeping my mouth shut when I have been hurt or something goes wrong. This piece of writing by Pema Chödrön hit home for me right now. I share it in hopes that something resonates with you as well and we can all, together, have the courage to be patient with our anger and aggression.


About DjunaPassman

I practice and teach yoga. I attempt to carry what I learn on my mat and through my students into the real world. Sometimes I am successful and sometimes I am grumpy and less than kind. I started life as a dancer, moved on to choreographing, worked as a dance/movement therapist, then realized the wonders of a regular yoga practice. I am a realist - whether the glass is half full or half empty you are bound to spill its contents if you are wearing white (this is why I wear black so often). I am not an expert on yoga, life, or anything else for that matter. I do my best to keep my mind and my heart open every day (some days are better than others).
