Games Night: Anger

Welcome to Games Night: Anger. Does anger serve a relational purpose? Do we control it, manage it, release it, transform it, express it, avoid it, suppress it, turn it into being uncooperative, turn cold, turn it on ourselves, be afraid of it? Is it a problem? Is it the same as aggression? What is the essence of anger? What is its raw energy about? 

These are the kinds of questions we will explore through games and exercises, some of which will be pure fun, some will be edgy and ask you to reveal yourself, and all of them will involve showing up transparently, to the extent that honors your needs and boundaries.

Games Night is an opportunity to grow and explore yourself, others, and authentic communication and connection. We provide a safe container with guided "games" that exercise different ways of interacting with a goal of giving you the opportunity to push your edge into places you usually dare not go. In these places you may discover it's okay to share how you really feel, it's okay to share where your attention really is, and it's okay to share other spicy edgy yet somehow satisfying and connecting truths of your reality. All this is done in the spirit of building deeper more authentic connections and relationships.

Doors Open at 7:15. Evening starts at 7:30 (sharp!) and doors are closed at about 7:45 (or whenever we begin the Agreements).

Reminder: The requested contribution is $10-15. This contribution will be requested upon entry to the studio. Please talk to us in advance if the cost to attend is prohibitive – no one will be turned away for lack of funds. You can contribute in other ways.

    I almost made it...dropped some cash off to support the cause...then showed myself some love and compassion and got ice cream on the way home ...instead of berating myself for being late...again.

    Apologies for missing tonight - I actually drove around the block thinking I was in the wrong place; I thought the Meetup was at Anne's house. Worked on connecting to anger as I drove home!

      Way to take it and own it, Christi!

    Re my last comment about a potential conflict with one of the organizers of the 'Anger' Game Night, I am happy to report that it was a mis-perception on my part and I continue to be a happy camper and appreciative participant within this group. I'm glad the person and I got to talk and clear the air rather than my just disappearing.

    Wow, a night full of emotion and exploration, way to play full out.

    Great topic, which elicited quite an array of responses from the group. We might benefit from having Part 2 - The Fury . . . but don't get mad that I've suggested that! :)

    I find anger to be a fundamentally different emotion than all others. It always appears to either mask other less comfortable emotions or result from a chronic denial of them. I'd characterize it as defensive rather than aggressive.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
