About the event
Audre Lorde taught us that anger is a source that can be used "in the service of our vision." This workshop invites us to examine the fear, shame, stigma, and distortions of power associated with anger. Collective exercises and personal reflection in this workshop will guide us to look to anger as a site of wisdom, clarification, and long-sought answers. How is anger an invitation to uncover, learn, and love ourselves more deeply? What does it look like when anger empowers us without overwhelming us? How can we develop a healing relationship with our anger without silencing it?
Tickets include morning coffee and tea time for community building before the workshop and supper with vegan/vegetarian options after. Enjoy the opportunity to support local healing vendors at 2:00 PM. Coupons will be available to purchase healing products!
15% of proceeds go to Shumi Land Tax to benefit native land rematriation. The rest supports the cost of future workshops for those who cannot pay full price.
This is not a replacement for therapy. Our workshops invite participants to explore some emotionally tender content. By attending this event you assure that you’re emotionally supported and resourced enough to engage without threatening your own or others’ safety.
