Skills to Help You Make an Ally out of Anger

What will you learn?
- What emotions are and how they work in your body, and effective skills and practices to help you work with them instead of against them.
- The importance of being comfortable in your skin; learning about how boundaries work, what they do, how to recognize them, and how to set them in an empathic way.

- How working with anger can help you to set boundaries in every area of your life, and set the foundation for working consciously with your other emotions.
