Anger is a big emotion. It often stirs up a lot of other emotions too- fear, guilt, shame, confusion, overwhelm, to name a few. Some of us experience intense avoidance of anger while others default to anger to avoid other feelings that it can cover (like sadness or despair).
How do you relate to anger? What do you notice about how it shows up for you? When does it shows up? What you do with it when it does?
There are not right or wrong ways to experience anger- even though there are some dangerous and hurtful ways of expressing it that we would all like to avoid engaging in.
But the goal isn't to rid ourselves of anger. Anger can be important and beautiful too and like it or not, it is a part of life.
If you would like to explore your own anger more, Hakomi can be a wonderful method for that. I am offering a women's group to do just that. Check out our workshop page for more information or come to the FREE information session on January 19!
May you be present with yourself- even when you feel angry. And if you can't, may you offer yourself compassion.
