About the Event
Anger is a highly stigmatized and misunderstood emotion. There are distinctions in who is allowed to experience and express anger in our society. Yet, the truth is that it is a natural and inevitable emotion, just as the so-called positive emotions like happiness and joy.
Prolonged anger can lead to issues with physical and mental health as well as impact one’s relationships, work life and other aspects of their lives. The stigma and shame come from this – it is a relational issue. The solution is NOT to never feel anger or deny its existence, rather to hold space for ourselves and others with compassion and in community.
Due to the nature of the conversation of this workshop, it will not be recorded. All conversations and discussions are to remain confidential.
Participants will gain:
· An understanding of the neuro-physio-psychological basis of anger
· A glimpse into their personal patterns of experiencing and expressing (or lack of) anger
· Practical tools to relate to their anger
· A blend of safe and brave space
· Welcoming, validating, non-judgemental
· Everything is an invitation – from me to you, and you to you
