The purpose of Rage Club is to change your relationship to the feeling and emotion of anger so you can consciously and productively use the energy and information of anger as an adult in your daily life, without being possessed or overwhelmed by it.
In modern culture we are deeply conditioned to believe that it is not okay to be angry because, “Anger is one of the negative feelings,” and “anger is dangerous, loud, embarrassing, uncivilized”. When you learn to own your anger and use it responsibly, you get clarity and can act, protect yourself and avoid creating victim-drama-stories.
Rage Clubs are an extremely safe learning environment allowing you to reconnect to the adult and archetypal power and intelligence of your anger.
The use of conscious adult anger starts when the anger becomes the tool to:
say, “No!” or “Stop!”
say “Yes!” (by the way, you can only say yes, if you can say an authentic no, otherwise your yes is a lie)
change things, move things, stop things, start things
get rid of things
make distinctions (just wait until you discover that distinctions are more powerful than boundaries!)
Participating in a closed Rage Club is a commitment to be on the Team and explore together the multitude of facets of anger for all 4 weeks.
This includes: four 2h30 sessions and inclusion in a WhatsApp group to share and support each other during the four weeks.
- how to keep your center and attention, even in face of ‘authority’ and distractions
- how to say ‘No’ and ’Stop' and ‘Yes'
- how to make commitments that change who you are, a change that shows up in your actions
- how to use low intensity anger (between 1-20%) in your every day life (to make decisions, say what you want, negotiate intimacy, clear out things, and unleash the mysterious intelligence of your feelings that has so long been suppressed)
- how to use ordinary and archetypal levels of anger as a neutral source of energy and information

Rage Club Legends
"Legends are spreading about Rage Club to the point where it made the local news (Golden Bay, NZ - https://www.stuff.co.nz/), and when I went to pay for our venue at the council offices, the woman at the counter had read the article about Rage Club and thought it sounded great!!! A council officer!! Then the other day at the market, a man who didn't know I was a Rage Club spaceholder started sharing this amazing legend about one of the exercises from our previous Rage Club that a friend had told him about, and I had to laugh a lot that he was sharing this legend with me...
I feel Joy about Rage Club legends spreading all over the world."
"Quite a few times in the check-in I and others have felt tired and would have actually preferred to sit on the couch having a quiet night... and then in the check-out I felt amazingly refreshed and happy, very connected to myself and the others in the group. And it felt so meaningful."
Nicola Scheibitz, Rage Club Participant in Ravensburg, Germany
"I want to say that I feel so much love and gratitude for the work that you do. Since my session with Daniel, the Rage Club and Fear Club, I feel more embodied and more aware of what’s shifting for me. I have been able to go deeper into my trauma like I haven’t done before on the physical level (just as the spiral of healing you mentioned yesterday)."

Rage Club Practices For Owning Your RAGE
Each Rage Club Session can include practicing together one or more
of the following practical daily-life applications of anger:
That day, nothing was working my way. After a few hours of growing rage, I called up a friend. Weirdly enough, he was experiencing the same situation! After a solid fifteen minutes of serious complaining on both side, I asked him “What do you do with the anger when nothing seems to be working?”. He said: “I use my anger to do the next thing”.
The power of conscious anger: from destructive to transformative
Taking our own emotions seriously is not only an act of self-respect, but also a political one. It is about accepting what arises as part of us, learning to give it its rightful place back, to potentialize its information and energy into creativity, inspiration and transformation.
Rage was almost totally displaced from my life for almost all of my life. And for sure the conscious and ‘not-gremlin’ one. As I was growing up in Poland, this bizarre country in the middle of Europe in ’90s, I didn’t know anybody who could have taught me how to feel, express and use my anger in a safe way.
Why you need anger to create fulfilling relationships
Why do you need anger to create fulfilling relationships? You might want say that anger destroys relationships and I would agree: too much unconscious anger can do that. And in the same way, too little conscious anger can keep you from really being in relationship.
My earliest memories about anger go back to when I was around 4 years old. My mother and my father are fighting with each other. I do not understand why they hurt each other with words. I want them to stop. Why do people fight like this? Shortly after they separated.
La plupart du temps, j’essaie d’ignorer ou d’engourdir ma colère et de me convaincre que cela fonctionne. À la place, je veux plaire tout le monde et, en cachette, j’accumule en moi des non-dits sans être consciente. Oui, je le vois : je me mens concernant ma relation avec la colère. Alors, pourquoi je me suis inscrite à ce cours, maudite marde ?
Ich benutze Wut um diesen Artikel zu schreiben. Ich benutze Wut um mir die Nase zu putzen. Ich benutze Wut wenn ich etwas ändern will, in Beziehungen für Klarheit sorge und den Redefluss von Klienten in meinen Sitzungen unterbreche, um mit ihnen einen Schritt weiter zu kommen.
On the fifth day of a temporary magic school, it became obvious that the soil in the magicians and sourceresses had been prepared enough for their Dragons to sprout and flame-up the world with a certain kind of poetry. I was one of the Dragon Speakers. Here what I as my Dragon said.
Ich komme aus einem Umfeld in dem mir beigebracht wurde, dass Gefühle nicht OK sind. Es super ist, wenn man gefühlsmäßig taub ist. Eine hohe Taubheitsschwelle hat. Das heißt, wenn mich jemand angreift, verletzt oder beleidigt so zu tun als würde es mich nicht berühren.
When I tell my friends that I’m doing Anger Practice or Rage Club Spaceholder training, a part of me cringes and shrinks. Not wanting to toot my own horn, draw attention to myself or make people uncomfortable. Rage Club? That sounds intriguing comes the response at times.
Have you ever been so filled with rage that you don't know how you could ever express its fullness? You feel the rage bubbling up into all aspects of your physicality; shaking, clenching teeth, fists, and stamping feet? Do you wonder how you could be filled with so much emotion – questioning; 'what's wrong with me!?'
Mut zur Wut: Warum es sich lohnt, die eigene Wutkraft zu befreien
Der Entschluss mich nun tatsächlich hinzusetzen und diesen Artikel zu schreiben fiel in dem Moment, in dem ich wütend wurde. In dem ich die Wut in mir aufsteigen spürte. Wut darüber, dass ich immer noch nicht schreibe.
Have you ever ask yourself why when you are pissed of at someone or something, you can feel such intense, violent energy that fills all your body ? Have you ever wonder what to do with all that? I can guess you have even thought that you had lost your mind. In any case, I would sincerely tell you that you are not alone on this, and you are not crazy at all.
And if something has already been done, why would you want to do the exact same thing again? Will that fulfil the deepest longings that are throbbing away in your heart and soul? Will that feed you the way you have been dreaming of for so long?
