Brentwood - Andrea Brandt discusses and signs "Mindful Anger"
Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Dr. Andrea Brandt to the store to discuss and sign her new book, Mindful Anger: A Pathway to Emotional Freedom, on Thursday, April 10th at 7pm.
Anger is a core human emotion, but for many its expression is frequently viewed as negative, whether feared or frowned upon. And yet anger suppression can lead to all sorts of ill effects, both physical and emotional. Headaches, digestive problems, and insomnia, just to name a few problems, can be attributed to suppressed anger, and unless addressed, it is impossible to overcome. Mindful Anger urges the deliberate surfacing of physical sensation and emotion so that anger can be examined and released, processing it through the body before it becomes toxic. The simple tools presented will help strengthen your connection to your inner self and explore your anger without being afraid of or embarrassed by it.
