Anger is aroused by a perceived threat to self or a significant other. We encounter anger between couples, between parents and children, between siblings, neighbors, in the workplace, or in road rage. The darker side of anger terrorizes the other, humiliates the other, make the other submissive. But anger is part of our evolutionary make-up, and belongs to our survival kit. It demands that you make contact with your shadow, voluntarily or involuntarily. It is a call you cannot avoid. It calls you to become who you truly are.

John Hill, M.A., earned a diploma in analytical psychology from the Jung Institute of Zurich, where he served for many years as a training analyst, and degrees in philosophy from the University of Dublin and Catholic University. He has a private practice in Zurich and is a training analyst at ISAP-Zurich. Born and raised in Ireland and a graduate of Glenstal Abbey School, he has published, among other works, "Celtic Myth," "Dreams," "Christian Mysticism," and "At Home in the World: Sounds and Symmetries of Belonging."
