Receiving the anger of other people as a gift is possible.
This course is a continuation of Harvest the fruit of your own and other’s anger. Part 1. After getting to understand and love our own anger in the first course, we will now work on seeing the beauty in other people’s anger. This continuation course will focus on practicing dialog with angry people, and staying in the fire until we start hearing what is in the person’s heart.
The first step is to be able to stay connected to ourselves while listening. Second to remember the dynamics of anger as an expression of unmet needs mixed with judgments.
We will explore what gets in the way and makes it difficult for us to enjoy other people’s anger. For example our own feelings of fear, guilt and shame.
How we will work:
The work will involve meditation and body awareness as preparation for dialogue. The base for the workshop is Nonviolent Communication (NVC) as a tool to find new ways in old conflicts. Prepare that the meetings will be experience-oriented with a minimum of theory.
We invite people who have participated in “Harvest the fruit of your own and other’s anger. Part 1” workshop.
If you have not taken part in it, but have other experiences of working with the NVC Anger Transformation Process, please send us a short email describing your experience, and we might suggest a talk with you before you sign up.

How to use the sliding scale
Our preference is to receive 160 Euro per person for this course.
We want to acknowledge that we have very different living conditions from country to country and from person to person. So you might live for example in Iceland where the parity rate indicates that 160 Euro in Denmark equals 200 Euro in Iceland. Or you might live in Hungary where the parity rate equals 76 Euro.
We also want to acknowledge that we have very big differences from person to person. You might live in a so called poor country and have access to abundant ressource. Or you might live in a so called rich country and struggle to pay your day to day expenses.
Please use the sliding scale with awareness of this.
If you give more than 160 Euro, together we can support another person to participate for less.

Opinions from participants:
“Anger Management is key to life and relationship building. ‘Harvest the fruit of your own and other’s anger’ by Kirsten brought a powerful transformative shift within me. The whole program is full of insight, practical examples and participative activities that enabled me to learn very useful insights and at the same time have fun and connection as a group.” Manoj Keshav, Founder, NxtNLP Research Institute, India
“The workshop put into perspective what my anger is guiding me towards. The benefits are that it made me look at the bigger picture, to look beyond the feelings and towards finding solutions in these situations. I learned how to be softer, whilst still effective in situations were previously I had thought I should use my anger as a life force. The anger is a signal, rather than a method of communicating now.” Rosanna Ward
“Kirsten is showing NVC in action. It is a gift to experience her living it.” Margareta
“I discovered in this workshop that anger is not scary, it just needs to be cared for in a different way.” Rasha
“I was surprised by what I discovered about myself exploring one incident. A random incident at work seemed a rich vein of self-discovery. Touching on the Beauty of the Need seemed to open the possibility of a more fulfilling, richer life.” HJ
“That is not important how much the anger is huge. There is a need there that is screaming… I became surprised how much life energy and dream live in my anger.”
