Join Rich Watkins for an evening of exploring, expressing and embracing the part of you that rages.
Sometimes it seems like society thinks all anger is violence. But 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.
In this context RAGE CLUB is a game we play together. It's 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.
“What a wonderful space - a genuine journey - something shifted”
“Really got me to look at my rage with more kindness”
“I’ve never been to anything like that before and I'm glad I did”
What to expect
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 foundation is the FIVE REALITIES OF RAGE:
1. Rage is universal
2. Rage isn’t violent
3. Rage comes out (one way or another)
4. Rage isn’t rational
5. Rage is power
Then we play with 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.
SELF-CARE LABEL: Rage Club is a game not therapy. The space will be supportive but our advice is to only come if you feel well equipped to deal with some strong feelings.
