6 Week Course

Have you ever experienced one of these moments?

  • Someone brings their anger and you aren’t sure how to respond 
  • Someone starts yelling at you, and you immediately freeze, or become defensive 
  • Conflict breaks out in a group you’re leading and you are unable to de-escalate it
  • You’re afraid of angry situations, so you try to avoid it the best you can 
What if you could show up in these difficult moments with confidence, clarity and skillfulness, and transform intensity into intimacy?

Welcome to Untriggered: Dojo for Emotional Self-Defense


In these experiential dynamic classes, you’ll walk away with the tools you need to feel confident in conflict (in particular those with intensity and anger).

 Imagine the sense of security knowing that you can handle anything that comes at you.

What Makes this Training Unique?


I’m hard-pressed to think of a more important skillset for navigating the modern world than learning to manage and regulate your own triggers, and to help others do the same. Peter’s UnTriggered class explores this challenging subject in an interactive play-space that's both fun and safe. Highly recommended!​


In UnTriggered, I feel like a new journey was started for me in introducing some tangible skills to meet relationships in a way that provides authentic care for the individuals and room for the conflict without abandoning myself or my own leadership. I found the work engaging, edgy, fun, and supportive in my growth.
