Anger is a powerful emotion. It can be a catalyst for positive change, but anger can keep us stuck if we leave it unresolved. So how do we move forward? This workshop teaches us how to resolve anger by evaluating its sources and expressing it in healthy ways. It also shows us how to harness anger as a force for good without us needing to be in control. By changing how we relate to anger, this emotion becomes an ally, rather than an enemy, in our interactions with others.
