DEPTH TEACHING AND FOCUSED PRACTICE

GRACEWALKER
 ~ Let the Unburdening Begin ~


WARRIOR
 

Please see below for the recording of our call together as well as two videos related to this topic.  The guided practice for working with ongoing will be created and uploaded within a couple of days.  Here are some basic notes from our exploration:

THE TRUE NATURE OF ANGER:

Liberation

Clarification

Protection

Purification

Tempering (Fire)

Guards your sacred path

Reorients you to right relationship, right action, right proportion, and timing

PRACTICAL:

Anger wants to keep you full, supple, anchored in peace, useful.  Ask what is this anger here to give me?

4 DISTORTIONS OF ANGER AND THEIR MEDICINES:

Distortion: Helplessness

Medicine:  Bowing, Acceptance

Bow to what you cannot control.  Get sober and clear about what you are truly helpless about so that you can know where you actually have agency.

Distortion: Volatile, Destructive

Medicine:  Containment

Do what you need to do to get up on the stallion rather than under it.  Nourish strength of vessel so that you can withstand the purification and let it ripen into wisdom in you.

Distortion: Repression

Medicine:  Boundaries Further Out

Anger wants to fill you in with your own energy.  Step back and look for where the boundaries really need to be so that you can fill your space with your own presence, and peace.  

Distortion: Self-Righteousness

Medicine:  Sobriety

Being anti-anything is inherently weak and not necessary.  Sober up and evaluate the real fruits of your actions.  Protect the sacred.  Become worthy of that role and let the rest take care of itself.

GUIDED PRACTICE

This is a twenty minute guided practice intended to bring you into a more resourced state, to connect you to your anger and to support you in making choices you can feel good about.  It can be used in the moment as an intervention if you find yourself really activated and ungrounded, or it can be used just as well for ongoing clarification and ripening of general states of anger, helplessness, destructiveness, hopelessness, or self-righteousness.  It definitely draws on foundational understandings set forth in our call together so make sure to have listened through that before going into practice.

NOTE:  The player displays an incorrect timing.  The practice is a little less than 20 minutes.
