“How to respond to aggression without anger”  – with Martin Luff

This lecture will explain the Buddhist approach to effectively dealing with aggression by using methods rooted in empathy, understanding, and communication; rather than the ineffective methods rooted in anger and violence often employed by other schools of thought. By adopting these strategies, this talk will suggest how it is possible to respond to challenging situations in a way that promotes peace, understanding, and cooperation, rather than perpetuating or escalating negative behaviour.
