What do you do when you get angry?
Do you let the negative, desctructive shadow-side of anger take over?
Do you just control or suppress your anger?
Or do you have ways to transform the energy that comes with anger into creative work?
My oldest son recently had more frequent angry outbursts, and I made up the story of the Angry Samurai for him. I'm a huge believer in the power of stories, and I believe that storytelling is a great teaching vehicle.

This is not the typical episode format we have here—it's a actually a recording of a conversation. But we decided to turn it into an episode and share it with you, because anger is one of the core human emotions we all have, and yet few of us have probably mastered our own anger.
As always, we'd love to hear from you!
