Rage Club with Richard Watkins
The feeling of anger is a natural human response to life happening, and feeling and accepting our real emotions is vital part of healthy human life. With very few public spaces to express rage safely, we bottle it up - and it creeps out in unhelpful ways - outwards as aggression or inwards against ourselves. This is bad news for society and bad news for us as individuals.
RAGE CLUB is a taboo-breaking, non-violent, non-therapeutic, non-judgemental space to explore rage - to express our anger and witness the anger of others. Come with your rage - you will leave feeling unashamed, energised, powerful and connected.
The format flows to support the building of trust together and the encouragement to express however much you feel OK with. There is no physical contact but you will be making noise and expressing emotions. Everything an invitation into Rage but always with your own boundaries and ok to sit out at any point. The session uses different practices to embody, enjoy and express rage. The mix is always a little different but you can expect sharing, drawing, moving, stamping, breathing, dancing. Come and explore the potential for your expression and healing at Rage Club!
