FROM ANGER TO POWER: A JOURNEY THROUGH THE RED ROOT (Upcoming Workshop in Gold Coast, Australia, 29 April 2017)
We each experience events that we understand as trauma, regret, grief – and often through these events – there is an underlying rage or anger that is unresolved or unexpressed. We are often shamed when acknowledging our anger as we are told that being evolved looks and feels a certain way. This has gone on for so long that there are so many who feel so depleted and depressed – not realizing that they expend an enormous amount of energy forcing their anger into denial. It takes a lot to keep something as primal, essential and elemental like that under wraps.
In various Wisdom Traditions across the globe, we find deities or archetypes whose wrathful or angry forms give us permission to express the red, hot rage that – often – we find stored in the Base or Root Chakra. Whilst anger in itself can be a destructive force, when transmuted and harnessed – it then reverts to the life-force itself. And through it we discover a channel to our own power.
Not many will understand this journey and some will be downright frightened or triggered by it as the face we wear when in our wrath is not a pleasant, comfortable sight for most. And many will choose to respond to it with fear, avoidance or shame – as it triggers the awareness of the same uncknowledged force within. In contemporary terminology, this is a path that is heavily projected on. And yet, it is one of the most rewarding.
In this workshop we remove the masks and strip away the veils that have been placed between ourselves and our primordial fire. We learn how to explore anger and rage as a distortion of this energy – and how to bring it back into alignment. As we work on ourselves as individuals, we work on the level of consciousness of the group – and the collective. We will also be paying special attention to the energies of the land that have most recently (and vividly) un-earthed so much of this energy, especially in the wake of Cyclone Debbie.
Now this is not an invitation to go into anger and sit in the vibration of self-righteous rage – it is to go beyond it and back to Source itself.
This workshop is not suitable for those who are freshly in the process of working through trauma but more so for those who have already developed a firm sense of grounding.
