Ever been angered by stupid? This program uses the principles of the martial art of aikido to invite each of us to react to others' anger and negative input productively in a creative and positive way.

Communication skills such as polite shut-ups are practiced so that each of us may resolve life's dilemmas graciously, effectively, and with humor.
