Overview

In recent years, neuroscientists have discovered that the heart has its own intelligence, a complex independent nervous system that is referred to as 'the brain in the heart.' Getting the heart into a positive rhythm can directly send a signal to the brain, allowing the two to synchronize and literally transform anger, frustration, and irritation into compassion, empathy, and calm.

From Transforming Anger, learn how thoughts and feelings get stored in the nervous system and create cellular triggers of irritation, frustration, and anger. Then find out how to get beyond the mechanical negative pull of these triggers. Discover how to control your heart rhythms using a 60-second 'freeze-frame' technique: an exercise that calms the mind, synchronizes the nervous system, and increases the level of internal coherence, so that you can clearly and quickly see the options for dealing with anger. This technique can be used anytime and anywhere, and puts you in a zone in which you are able to feel calm, compassionate feelings for yourself and for others. For lasting change, learn to build emotional assets, depersonalize the actions of others, identify resistance to change, and keep the practice going.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Transforming Anger is an important book for our time. Using solid research, Childre and Rozman make it clear that when it comes to dealing with anger, our most powerful asset is our heart. By using their simple and fast-acting exercises, you’ll learn to respond to stressful life situations with clarity, intelligence, and maturity. This book is not only about transforming your anger, it’s about transforming your life!”
—Cheryl Richardson, author of Take Time for your Life

“The relationship between anger, heart attacks, and other adverse health effects is well documented. Studies also suggest that individuals who are unable to express anger and ‘get things off their chest’ are at the greatest risk. This book shows not only how to defuse this deadly emotion, but how you can transform it into positive feelings that will make you more productive rather than self-destructive.”
—Paul Rosch, MD, president, The American Institute of Stress, clinical professor of medicine and psychiatry, New York Medical College, author of The Doctor’s Guide to Instant Stress Relief, and editor of Stress Medicine

“This new book, Transforming Anger, is excellent. Refreshingly simple and easy to read, the book offers profound insights into the most critical issue of our day: our violence towards self, world, and other. Surely the work is pertinent to our times and fills a serious personal-social need.”
—Joseph Chilton Pearce, author, The Crack in the Cosmic Egg, Magical Child, and The Biology of Transcendence

“In these days when both health professionals and the public are apt to turn to medication whenever anything goes wrong, Transforming Anger is a welcome breath of fresh air. Here is a technique and scientifically-based method for developing self-control that does not short-circuit normal biological regulatory processes.”
—Karl H. Pribram MD, Ph.D., (Hon. Multi), distinguished research professor, Georgetown and George Mason Universities; professor emeritus, Stanford and Radford Universities, author, Language of the Brain and Brain and Perception; and coauthor, Freud’s Project Reassessed and Plans and the Structure of Behavior

Transforming Anger points out that this powerful negative emotion can not only affect our health, but also impair out ability to think and reason clearly. I have been teaching the tools discussed in this new book since 1997. These tools , proven effective in breaking the cycle of anger and all of its consequences, are extremely easy to learn and are based on elegant scientific research that has taught us how the heart and the brain communicate.”
—Bruce C. Wilson, MD, chairman, board of directors, Heart Hospital of Milwaukee, former director, University of Pittsburgh Heart Institute

“How much energy do you waste being angry during your average day? What effect does that have on those you care about? In Transforming Anger, Doc Childre and Rozman give you a series of easy-to-learn, highly effective tools and the science behind them, showing you how to prevent that loss of energy and heal those relationships. A much needed fix for our fast-paced, often overwhelming lives.”
—Lee Lipsenthal, MD, medical director, Lifestyle Advantage and The Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease
