If life experiences have led you to be afraid of your anger or to block your anger, this workshop is for you.

If you have struggled with ‘managing’ anger, this workshop is for you. 

If you rarely experience the emotion of anger, this workshop is for you! 

Anger is perhaps the most stigmatized human emotion. We are afraid of it and we criticize it. We try our best to suppress it or to not even acknowledge it. But anger is there. One way or another, sooner or later, it will show itself. 

Have you ever experienced ‘shutting down’ in the moment of a conversation, and later observed that thoughts and feelings about that exchange just kept lingering and firing up in your mind?

Have you ever noticed passive aggression of your own, or been on the receiving end of others?

Does your anger either never shows, or explodes when it does? 

In this workshop, we will learn to build a different relationship with anger. We will learn to listen to our anger compassionately and skillfully. We will learn practices that help us understand and effectively express the message of our anger. Like any other emotions we have, anger wants and needs to be heard, and acknowledging and working with anger is the best way to ‘manage’ it. We will discover the connections between ANGER, POWER, andLOVE.

ANGER is a messenger that often connects with our POWER and boundaries.  

True POWER does not dominate. True Power promotes self-respect and respect for others. 

LOVE grows when authenticity and trust grow.

When I feel sadness, my whole body seems to be drained of energy. A soft, tear-colored mist diffuses from behind my eyes and down into my chest.

Breathing together – How to stop comparing ourselves

What questions do you ask when you meet someone for the first time? Personally, I purposefully avoid asking them about their work. More often than not this information comes out spontaneously and naturally. In the meantime, I savor the ability to listen unknowingly, as I enter into a space of neutrality and curiosity.   Most of … Continue reading Breathing together – How to stop comparing ourselves
