Show Notes Chapter Markers

This is our Book Club episode where we discuss a chapter from our current book choice: Women Who Run With the Wolves by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes. In this episode, we discuss chapter 12: "Marking Territory: the boundaries of rage and forgiveness”.

Summary:

This chapter is an exploration of anger. It focuses on learning how to use rage as a teacher, and it looks at how forgiveness can be a healing process for when you are stuck in old rage. This episode is for you if you want to learn more about anger and how to work with it. It’s for you if you want to use your anger as a powerful emotion to help you create boundaries and transformation in your life or in the world. It’s also for you if you ever find yourself stuck in old resentment, replaying tapes of grievances, and feeling like this no longer serves you or helps you to develop personally or to create new things.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The difference between clean anger and old rage
  • How to use anger as a teacher to create boundaries
  • How to transform old rage through forgiveness
