"Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor." -- Thích Nhất Hạnh

Suku, the peaceful, balanced, and kind Suku, totally lost it. He got so pissed off that he went into some sort of angry trance. When he woke up there were a lot of casualties around him. He knows that there were many ways to act better, in fact, almost anything he could have done would have been better. But in that moment, he was hijacked by his emotions.

How can he train himself to avoid another blow-up?

In the following video, you can see how Suku and I explore the mindful practices that underlie emotional intelligence.

Readers: Is there any guilt that you need to heal through corrective actions? Is there any shame you need to dissolve through self-awareness?
