Event Details

Tenga en cuenta: la formación básica también es necesaria para realizar la formación de profesores.

Uso correcto de Power ™ está en el corazón mismo de la ética. Anhelamos, y somos capaces de, la magnificencia en el uso de nuestro poder personal y profesional. Y todos hemos sido heridos por los abusos del poder. El enfoque de la ética del uso correcto del poder ™ es dinámico y atractivo y reconoce que las cuestiones del poder en las relaciones de ayuda son complejas. Vinculando el poder con el corazón, este programa se enfoca en aumentar la habilidad, el compromiso y la conciencia. Es ética de adentro hacia afuera.

Teacher Training & Mentorship Program

Nuestra Formación básica y docente is a live fully-immersive 9-month training, online learning experience for people of all helping professions. Empowering, relevant, and dynamic, our program is presented through engaging talks, facilitated discussions, and experiential practices. Participant relationships are enhanced through small group time in Connecting Rooms (Zoom breakout rooms).

The Teacher Training has four parts that combine to give you the skills, confidence, resources and collegial support to begin teaching your own right use of power programs and developing your power-wisdom.

Our teacher trainers learn how to TEACH right use of power™ to others and receive ongoing training, mentorship, and full access to all RUPI resources and materials. RUPI Teacher Trainees also receive membership to our RUPI Teachers Guild which offers ongoing teacher development, guild conferences and events, and a community of RUPI teachers worldwide.

El programa total incluye

  • 35 horas totales de capacitación directa (capacitación en grupo completo, grupos pequeños y tutoría individual)
  • Teacher’s Resource Manual  and additional materials in electronic format (downloadable)
  • 9 meses de membresía de RUP Guild con acceso a recursos en línea y al sistema de gestión del aprendizaje (durante la capacitación)
  • 9 meses de orientación y apoyo de RUPI

Teacher Training:

4-hour training days over 9 months to include pod meetings and a graduation

During this time, you shift from being a student to becoming a teacher and co-collaborator in the evolution of right use of power work.  You study advanced topics, learning them through the lens of teaching, and you have a chance to talk with each other about what you are integrating and about topics of interest that arise.

Small Group Pods & Individual Mentoring

Small group pods meet in the 2nd half of the meeting time each month

The purpose of these smaller 5-7 person groups is to practice teaching the core exercises that you experienced during the Core Training.  During these group times you will have a chance to practice giving and receiving feedback, to ask questions about concepts, to deepen your understandings, and to explore how to adapt the material to specific groups you are interested in.


(3 sesiones de tutoría) Starts in December and meet three times before graduation.

Here you will meet 3 times with a RUP trained teacher and Guild Member whom you will be assigned after the initial training dates.  You will focus on personalizing what you want to do as a RUP teacher.

Power is everywhere and yet seldom talked about or taught.

Right Use of Power is a large body of topics, concepts, experiential practices that have been integrated from many sources.  In our programs, you will be learning to both use and teach conscious ethics and power with heart—core tenets in an alternative operating system for power that we call “Socially Conscious Power.”  This approach is a large and evolving orientation and set of information and embodied practices that are applicable and adaptable for many groups and many issues. 

The Right Use of Power Teacher Training is not a certification or licensing program.  At the completion of the Teacher Training you can use concepts, handouts, written materials, and exercises you have been given to share information or to design and deliver programs about Right Use of Power.  Our expectation is that you will feel confident, resourced, and well-supported in offering concrete modules and then more and more extensive programs as you grow in your confidence and understanding of and experience with the concepts and practices.  If you find that you wish to teach the entire core curriculum, as delivered, you can follow a more extensive learning path that includes working with a Core Faculty member who can mentor and/or co-teach with you.

At the end of the training, you will also be given an opportunity to choose how you wish to stay connected with RUP and RUPInstitute.  Through the free or Power Positive membership you may call yourself an Independent Teacher and have access to on-going learning opportunities and community connections.  If you choose the Guild Teacher membership, you will, in addition, have access to our extensive resource library, membership in Focus Groups, and continuing and advanced programs.  And you will be authorized to call yourself an Affiliated Teacher and use the Affiliated Teacher seal.  Please see more information about membership levels at the website.  Regardless of the level of membership you choose, we both trust and entrust you to freely use the materials and move at your own pace in sharing the concepts and processes. Our desire is that you will feel confident, resourced, and well-supported in moving at your own pace in whatever level of involvement you choose. 

We invite you to ask for a conversation with Dr. Barstow or other Core Faculty, if you have questions or want more information than is provided here, please email us at [email protected]

Personas que han realizado este informe de formación:

  • “I now have so much more confidence about how so many aspects of teaching—experiential work in person and virtually, how to present concepts simply and effectively, how to engage with participants, how to pace learning, and how to address multiple learning styles.”
  • “Wow.  Feedback became both an art and a relationship-builder instead of something to be feared.”
  • “This RUP material and the experientials fill in a gap about understanding power that I didn’t even know needed filling.”
  • “I see now how power is somewhere in virtually everything and yet, so under-acknowledged.”
  • “I can now be a cheerleader for the possibility and practicality of power being used wisely, consciously, and well.”

    Impulsada por los valores fundamentales de la curiosidad, el coraje y la conexión, la misión personal de Amanda es ser valiente al servicio de reducir y reparar el daño en las relaciones y promover el cambio cultural hacia la conciencia de poder y equidad, la positividad del conflicto y la competencia en el conflicto. Amanda es la fundadora de integración restaurativa y directora senior de misión, cultura y comunidad inclusiva en la Universidad de Naropa, donde actualmente apoya a estudiantes, profesores y personal en la concienciación crítica, la comprensión de las dinámicas de poder y la expansión de la capacidad para conversaciones difíciles.

    Dr. Cedar Barstow

    RUPI Founder & Co-Executive Director

    Cedar has been passionate about working with issues of power and ethics for 25 years. She believes that embodied learning—learning from the inside out—is both the most engaging and the most effective way of learning. She has been surprised at how many experiential processes can be adapted to virtual formatting. She loves teaching, developing programs, and helping to guide the growth and reach of RUPI. One of RUPI’s foci for the next few years is increasing diversity and contributing to social justice—which, of course, is a right use of power. She is also a Trainer with the Hakomi Mindful Somatic Therapy organization. She lives with her husband, Ren, in a co-op home in Boulder, CO.
