Three leading Buddhist teachers offer insights and techniques to understand the energy of your emotions, free yourself from negative emotional patterns, and discover the wisdom in even the most difficult emotions. 52 YOU CAN’T GET RID OF YOUR ANGER—AND THAT’S OK Both denying painful emotions and giving in to them only makes things worse. The middle way, says Dharma Punx teacher Josh Kord a, is to live with your emotions skillfully so you don’t harm yourself or others. 56 HOWDOIPUTMYMINDTOREST? The only real answer, says Zen teacher Karen Maezen Miller, is to cut off your conflicting emotions at their root. 60 THE 4 NOBLE TRUTHS OF EMOTIONAL SUFFERING The Buddha laid down a four-step path to freedom from difficult emotions. Once we understand the cause of our emotional suffering, says Anyen Rinpoche, the path to freedom becomes clear. PLUS 38 THE TRUTH TELLER Renowned writer and activist Rebecca Solnit fearlessly tells the truth about misogyny, injustice, and environmental destruction. As Lindsay Kyte reports, Solnit tells us another important truth: we have hope, and it is found in uncertainty. 47 ANSWERING THE CALL TO AWAKEN Like the Buddha, we all get our call to wake up, and it often comes when life isn’t going well. Buddhist teacher Spring Washam tells us the moving story of how she answered her own call to awaken. 64 DHARMA 24/7 Most Buddhists today are lay practitioners with jobs and families, but a few still pursue enlightenment the old-fashioned way. Koun Franz asks four people why they gave it all up for the dharma.
