Love and Rage:

The Path of Liberation Through Anger


A Six-Week Online Course and

Practice Group with Lama Rod Owens

Monday, October 30th - Sunday, December 10th, 2023

Do you feel like the world is ending? Well, there is nothing like a crisis to wake us up and start getting us serious about change.


Although we are not experiencing the end of the world, we are experiencing the revelation of some enduring lies that we have been collectively told or have been telling ourselves. With the end of lies comes the awakening of truth. This moment is calling us towards truth about ourselves, our inner pain, the health of our planet, our systems of violence, and our economies of scarcity. 

Truth uncovers everything. As we wake up, we have an opportunity to face the multiplicities of our grief, anger, and rage. 

Truth moves us towards freedom, because it is when we face the truth that we can create intentional change.

Join Lama Rod Owens for the final iteration of his Love & Rage course that will be offered with live teaching.* Through six weeks of online practice and community building, Lama Rod will guide participants through the core meditation practices from his best-selling book, Love and Rage: The Path of Liberation Through Anger. These practices offer refuge to work with the difficult emotions arising from the circumstances of our time.

*Future Love & Rage courses will either be self-directed or only include pre-recorded teachings.


Registrants will receive a coupon code for 35% off a copy of the Love and Rage physical book plus free shipping (U.S. only).

Course Details: 

Love & Rage guides you through an exploration of anger and individual and collective trauma. The course invites you to deeply come to know your rage, accept it, and learn how to use the wisdom contained within anger as ground for liberation. 

Each week includes a live class with Lama Rod, plus written and recorded meditations and teachings. You'll also have access to a private community platform that supports connections with others and space to reflect on your practice. 

This course is open to beginners and anyone already familiar with meditation and Lama Rod's work. It has been created specifically with our UK friends in mind, and is open to all who seek to deepen their personal relationship to the practices within this book while also building community among like-minded practitioners.


In this final live iteration of the Love and Rage course, you will get access to: 

  • Live Teaching: 12 hours of live guided practice & dialogue with Lama Rod (2 hours each week). All live sessions will also be recorded and uploaded to the course platform.
  • Self Guided Practice: over 6 hours of recorded teachings and practices that you can access at your own pace to help integrate the teachings into everyday life
  • Community Practice Leader: The course is supported by a community practice leader who will be with you along the way by offering additional live practice sessions on November 7th and 28th, plus a practice guidebook to support you through the course week by week.
  • Community Connection Platform: Opportunities to engage with others and discuss the course themes

Feedback from previous Love and Rage Online Course participants:


"This course was just what I needed at the right time! Having the opportunity to be in live conversation with Lama Rod and learn from him has been invaluable to deepening my practice and self-understanding. This course has been a treasure, a gem that will remain with me."

"Magic - I am experiencing the most difficult period of my life and these teachings were invaluable.  I experienced insights like holding intense pain within joy and touching earth that were completely new to me.  Lama Rod offers profound teachings in a way that demystifies them in an accessible way."

"The course provided a space to go deeper and really internalize and embody the content from the book. It's easy to just read it from an intellectual place, but I didn't want to do that, and the course helped me process it not just mentally but also in an embodied way, and that was very helpful."

"It has felt like connection I have never felt before, and the finding of tools I had always hoped for. A coming together of seemingly conflicting parts, and a strength to keep looking."

"It has helped me deepen my love and compassion practice and given me more tools to resource myself through difficult times so it's been really amazing for me."

"This course has been life-changing for me. I feel included and like there is space for me. I have been able to heal my stagnations and scary places in my body through the practices."

"I'm very grateful for the practices in the course, especially the Homecomings. I'm finding it a powerful way of connection and acceptance of my journey through life. Much appreciation for the spaciousness to hold all the contradictions and paradoxes that flow through my body, mind and heart. I have much to do to accept and allow my rage, but thank you Lama Rod for the practices and normalization of all feelings."

"Lama Rod's humor and wit were so refreshing. His wisdom helped me feel more spacious and grounded and I've developed more clarity in emotional language and experience because of this course."

"This course has been life changing on multiple levels."

"Having the opportunity to be in live conversation with Lama Rod and learn from him has been invaluable to deepening my practice and self-understanding. I appreciated hearing about the various practices and chapters in the book directly from Lama Rod. This course has been a treasure, a gem that will remain with me."

"I am so grateful. Lama Rod has answered questions I didnt even know I was asking and longing to hear answers for."

"I took this course primarily to work with anger but what I found while doing the course was that what I needed most were the practices of calling in my circle of care to support me - to take refuge, and the practices for mourning. Partially "right thing at right time", partially just things I hadn't thought I needed that it turns out I sorely did. Both of those practices have felt transformative to both my existing practice and to my outlook/perspective on life."

"It has truly allowed me to take the time to integrate some wisdom, to create some spaciousness within, and get to know myself more, and how I can interact with the world with more agency."

"The experience has been so insightful and loving. It's helped me work through a lot of unprocessed experiences and emotions at a time when I've generally felt really depleted. I had been unsure if I could commit to anything else. But I am so glad I did. So grateful for this experience."

"The course was an anchor. The material met me where I am, and helped me recognize that the work I've been doing the last several years is deeper in my bones than I knew. I am deeply grateful to Lama Rod and his team for facilitating this course because it has deepened my skills and bolstered my spirit."

"I'm so grateful for a truly beautiful, affirming experience!"
