Workshop on Sunday, the 17th November:
“Precious Anger” – experience and understand anger anew
The workshop “Precious Anger” will be about learning how to deal with anger/rage appropriately. It’s not that I already know how to exactly myself, but I know, for me, it lies between two extremes:
On the one hand, there are the mindfulness-based approaches, such as Marshall Rosenberg’s non-violent communication, which slow down a spontaneous expression of anger. They may be useful, but they may also support our tendency to swallow our anger, or to shift an argument inward, though it may be external.
On the other hand, there are therapeutic approaches, such as bioenergetics, which see emotion as an open or intensified expression of emotion as a path to inner freedom, which classify the expression of anger as a helpful cathartic discharge. This approach may prevent a true understanding of the background of anger because there is too much focus on the energy of the utterance.
Personally, I find a middle ground best: Reflecting on a good statement, but letting it out unchecked. Befriend the energy and understand what’s behind it.
Therefore “precious” anger:
Because anger wants to show us something – something really precious. Anger can only do that if we remove it from the “dirty corner” and appreciate the notion. How exactly, we want to explore and experience together on this day. We will meditate together, do different exercises in the group or in small groups and exchange a lot.
The workshop runs from 10.00 to 18.00 and costs 60 €. On request, a discount is possible.
