Anger, hatred, resentment, fear, jealousy, greed. Tough emotions, but ones that most of us experience at one time or another. This gritty exploration of such "toxins" helps us to recognize the negative emotions and mental states we can absorb consciously--or unconsciously--and suggests creative ways of working with them. With short exercises for anyone to use that draw on Buddhist teachings on self-love, mindfulness, and more.

Valerie Mason-John is a former journalist and a trainer in anger management who speaks openly from her personal experience of conflict, anger, and fear. Also the author of the novel Borrowed Body (Serpent's Tail, 2005), which draws from personal life history of being a foster child, black, lesbian--and a woman finding her way.
