One Service - 10:30 a.m.    

 

Sunday, July 24th                                                                “Why We Snap” understanding the “How and Why of Rage”                                                                     Joe Gillotti

In his new book Dr R. Douglas Fields talks about rage circuits in our brains we can't fully control once it is engaged.  We know very rational people can suddenly snap causing family disputes, barroom brawls, road rage and much more violent forms of rage leading to injury and even death.  In order to gain control over this seemingly inexplicable response, we must learn to understand the biology of how the animal instinct inside us works in order to appreciate how rage arises.  This talk will also cover practical advice providing useful techniques one can use to mitigate these outburst before they occur.  Joe has been teaching Yoga and Yoga Philosophy since the early seventies and for the past 8 years he has facilitated a Chalice Circle group here at UU Danbury studying the Power of Now and New Earth by Eckert Tolle.

Inspirational Quote:

We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility.

It's easy to say, "It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem."

 

Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes. 
          - Fred Rogers
