Anger Regulation Course

Next Course Date: TBA

Anger is a normal human emotion that helps us survive. In healthy amounts it can be motivating and invigorating. Unfortunately for many of us anger has become chronic and out of control. In Native American Culture anger is referred to as the “emotion that rots the spirit.” When it is present for long periods of time it becomes a toxic energy that literally poisons its host. It festers, brews and accumulates staying inward and leading to depression and physical deterioration and/or it seeps outward manifesting in harmful words and behaviors. Of course it can also be explosive resulting in catastrophic consequences. In today’s culture anger is everywhere! Whether it’s at work, school, in your car or at the shopping mall, anger can be felt.  From daily frustrations to violent outbursts - every age, gender, culture and socio- economic group is affected.
