Investment: $65, includes lunch
Have you found yourself experiencing the anger, frustration or helplessness of an old wound over and over, unable to get over it, as counseled by so many? This day is for those who have a hard time letting go of anger – a distressing and uncomfortable emotion for most people. Historically, anger has been considered a sin, a weakness or madness. People of all genders, races and ages experience and express anger in different ways due to their varied experiences and cultural expectations. Anger is not the same as aggression, hostility and harm toward another. This group will be a welcoming space to learn about anger, as we talk and explore our own anger through other senses. Participants can expect to gain insight into the different ways anger is processed and then reflect on their own anger through the use of an anger journal.
