Yesterday, I had a session at a facility called SBL in Kakigaracho, which I remember from my days in Nihonbashi. The mini-lecture session started at 9am, and we chatted about the lies of the coronavirus vaccine and Jung’s shadow.

He explained that when our unconsciously suppressed emotions are projected onto the person we are meeting, it can cause feelings of disgust and anger towards them.

In short, violence can be avoided by accepting anger as one’s own problem, not the other person’s, and by expressing it calmly through language and other means, rather than through anger-driven behavior.

In order to do this, it is necessary to accept anger as a right emotion rather than suppressing it as a bad emotion, and to train oneself to verbalize one’s values and various emotions that are the source of the anger in the de-violence program.

So yesterday, we read the picture book “Anger Can Be Good For You” by Pat Palmer (Translator Note: https://cavenoid.com/upliftpress.com/Palmer/about.html) and did a workshop called “I Hate That Guy”.

For some reason, I wanted to eat starch… I got a large bowl of Ippei-chan noodle at the convenience store.
The Women’s workshop was filled with sweets, like a girls’ party.

Anyway, I guess this is the only group workshop where women and men can talk about violence and anger, but still keep laughing together… It may be a mysterious place to the public.

After the Women’s workshop, I had three counseling sessions, and then took the night bus back to Kyoto…

The bus arrived in Kyoto at dawn… I went to the JAFAREC office, took out the trash, went home, made lunch… After that, I took a break and went back to counseling… The hard work continued.
