13:00 How to Harness Your Inner Angry Vegan - Gabriela Lerner


We’ve all been there. At some point in our vegan journey we will be angry, whether we like it or not. But anger is not a good place to live from. Not only does activism out of anger often result in more aggression and less communication, but anger also hurts ourselves. Anger can make us physically and mentally ill. Anger and fear are closely connected, which is why even the most righteous anger can backfire at us. On the surface we may have learned to control our anger. But what happens to the anger and fear we carry within ourselves? How can we harness our inner angry vegan? In this talk, Gabriela will help you understand the cause and effect of anger. She will share with you some simple practices that will help you to shift your angry or fearful feelings to love and forgiveness. Learn how you can increase your power to inspire others while simultaneously being at peace with yourself. Gabriela is a vegan consciousness coach, a certified Raw Nutrition Coach and Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, with a background in personal development.
