A Workshop for Women
Gifted and 2e women's anger has been denied and dismissed for far too long. Now more than ever, it longs to be heard...
While intense and complex, our anger is actually rich with data and transformative energy, rooted in our deep sense of empathy and care. And yet, how many of us ever learned how to honor and explore our anger in all its depth? Mindfully embraced and metabolized, anger and rage can be powerful catalysts for inner and outer transformation. Left unmetabolized, they can turn inward on us, distorting our gifted expression and keeping us stuck in overwhelm. Any growth work that we do as gifted and 2e women ― both personally and collectively amongst our families and communities ― must create space for anger and rage to be heard, honored and held.
In this 3 hour workshop led by Kelly Pryde, we will create a safe, compassionate space in which to give unapologetic voice to gifted women's anger & rage, exploring their truth and complexities and learning tools for embracing and going forth with them in skillful, empowering ways. The workshop draws on mythic story, psychology, the deep ecology work of Joanna Macy, and expressive art. It is designed to be both informative and interactive with a small group of up to 8 women to allow for rich, meaningful exploration.
The roots of, and differences between, anger and rage in gifted women's experience, and the ways they manifest internally and externally
Interconnections between anger, grief, and shame (including ancestral, planetary and collective wounds, also known as "The Feminine Wound")
An ecological framework for using anger and rage as a portal into personal (and social) transformation so we can meet injustice and our changing world with a resilience that is courageous, compassionate, and sustainable

This workshop brought a number of ongoing patterns and pieces into the light. ... The level of understanding and correlations presented provided the opportunity for acceptance, honouring the messages received from my body over the years, and release from the rage-shame-grief cycle. Thank you for your work in developing all of this.
If you are looking for compassionate understanding of the why's and how's of your gifted anger, the Mindful of Gifted Anger Workshop is just right for you. The content is on point, and always when guided by Kelly, accompanied by a meditation that feels safe, enables trust and cultivates compassion.
