Course Overview

Compassion is often misunderstood as being weak, passive and subsequently leading to condoning unethical behaviour. Why is that? Anger’s function to protect ourselves in a wise way is often overlooked, when in fact it is a manifestation of fierce compassion. We will debunk myths around compassion and anger and evoke your resolve to protect yourself in a brief meditation.

24min

Most people censor their feelings of anger and resist them consciously or unconsciously. This leads to anger manifesting in a variety of other unhelpful ways. After describing what anger can look like, when it is resisted, you get to explore your relationship with anger and get to know the various parts within you that judge, suppress or feel afraid of anger.

19min

In this session you are guided to visualize a person who embodies strength, wisdom, courage, calm, justice and kindness to you. This role model has experienced disempowerment and inspired others to empower themselves. Visualizing and emulating this role model over time, will help you to activate those qualities within you.

17min

Inner empowerment shows on the outside as a calm, grounded and dignified posture and expression. Empowered postures help to feel heard, seen and respected by others. They involve neither aggression nor submission. In this session we will explore how posture, embodiment and music can help to activate this loving force in the body. You will be guided through a body-focused visualization.

14min

Whenever someone is mistreated, the natural response is outrage. People however often stay silent because they fear the consequences of being punished, disbelieved, discredited or have it turned against them. In this session we start to work directly with parts that disempower us by invalidating our truth of being mistreated. These parts are the first in line to block us from connecting to the loving force of healthy anger.

23min

When we are faced with injustice, we easily feel isolated and powerless. To gather strength to persevere, we need to connect with peers who are affected in a similar way. When we stand united, we feel stronger, more resilient and more supported. In this session, we evoke common humanity and solidarity in a guided mediation.

18min

As soon as we have woken up to the full scale of the hurt and harm we have experienced, we often blame ourselves instead of getting angry with those who have hurt us. In this session we will work with the emotions of shame and exaggerated guilt that often show up and get in the way of us protecting ourselves.

27min

The fiery energy of anger may burn us up or burn us out. When we learn to contain the fire to keep it burning steadily, we can harness its energy to wake us up and to stand our ground. In this session, you will be guided to feel into the sensations of anger in your body and to use its energy to see the situation more clearly.

19min

Witnessing healthy anger by listening to its messages can give us important insights. When we linger with these insights in our hearts, minds and bodies, a manageable step of wise and loving action can arise. In this session, you will be guided to move from insights into wise action.

15min

Fierce love can help us to build a culture of genuine dialogue and democracy. Our goal becomes agreeing to disagree and staying connecting in the disagreement instead of cutting the person out of our life or giving up our viewpoint to keep the peace. In this session, you get to practice sticking to your truth and values in a relationship without getting aggressive, defensive or submissive.
