Course Contents And Overview
This course contains 40+ lectures and 2.5+ hours of content! It is designed for you if you want to learn to manage anger, annoyance, irritability and more… It is designed for you if you want to move past the potentially “destructive” quality of anger and shift into new possibilities for action.
The material in this course is what I use with my coaching clients so if you are curious about learning to coach yourself from observing your thoughts, ideas and body while exploring anger, this course is for you!
I strongly believe in 3 key ideas: #1) Education - learn about what matters to you; #2) Coaching - practice and embody that learning; and #3) Leadership - show up "fully and in presence" with others.
Every section in this course is connected and invites you to embody the learning. Each section has some “Action Steps” or “Activity” to help you notice what shows up for you as you to interpret and get to the story of the emotions that you experience.
The more you can practice and apply what you learn in the sections determines the results you'll get.
Section #1 – “Welcome To The Course” – Quickly get started in this section with this short introduction to “Anger Management” through a linguistic process via the two foundational models of the O-A-R and the B-E-L.

There is also an invitation to join the private Facebook group called, “Life Coaching And Vedic Counseling”.

We “step into” anger and related emotions and notice “Who/What/When/Where/How” it shows up. Then we “step out”. Step in. Step out. Step in. Step out. It’s a constant practise.
Section #5 – "Guided Visualizations From ‘3 Steps To Improve Communication Skills’" – Here you will learn about the 5 body dispositions and how they cause us to experience certain emotions.
