A Seishindo Anger Management Workshop
–Available upon request–
With Charlie Badenhop and Dorothy Pietracatella
Do you ever find yourself feeling really upset with someone, and wishing you understood more about anger management? If so, we have two pieces of news for you. The bad news is: You can't completely stop your waves of anger. The good one is: You can use your anger as the fuel to power your personal development. Join our program built on the proven principles, practices, and techniques, distilled from Charlie's 20-year experience as an Aikido instructor, NLP trainer and Ericksonian hypnotherapist. Achieve a peaceful victory over your anger and live the life your heart longs for.
Many people know of Aikido, the Japanese martial art that has no techniques for attacking one’s opponent. Not many however know that the founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, intended for Aikido to be primarily a path of personal transformation, and anger is usually one of the first emotions to be faced along the way. When you practice the principles of mind-body coordination, you face your anger and use it to fuel the intensity of your desire to change and be more at peace in the world.
Come to our workshop and:
- Experience how the circular, flowing movements of Aikido, encourage you to use the wisdom of your body in order to lessen your anger and increase the energy of your life force.
- Become aware of and learn to gently follow the circle of your emotions, that anger is only one small part of. Amplify your emotional experience and feel complete and relieved in the process.
- Discover how to turn anger into compassion and empathy.
- Learn how to release the holding patterns of anger that reside in your body. When you let go of anger you open yourself up to feeling love and acceptance.
- Discover that being open and receptive in the face of your counterpart's anger is the best possible way to defend yourself.
- With a proven set of Seishindo Practices, learn to utilize the energy your anger generates in you. The more consuming or seemingly overwhelming your anger, the more it can help you return to a calm center within yourself.
- Take the time to gently explore your feelings and you will find that your emotional well-being resides deep inside yourself, waiting to be touched and acknowledged.
