Anger tells a story about the kind of relationship we have with our body feelings, emotions, and thoughts, as we react to events. The specific relationship we have with anger is not a one-size-fits-all kind of story. For most of us, changing our anger story often feels like we will have to surrender more than just our personal values, it may even cost us our identity. Understanding your anger story and the relationship you have with your inner experiences will continue to influence the way that you engage with suffering and invite change.
This eight-week course is arranged to improve insight and unravel the complicated relationships we have with anger. Using Attachment, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioural Approaches, this workshop will inspire you to develop solutions for anger through practice and insight.
