Core Training – July 2024

July 22nd @ 10:00 am - July 25th @ 2:00 pm MDT

$200.00 – $750.00

Our Core Training is a 4-day, live, online global learning experience that follows our Basics Training (which is a prerequisite for the Core Training). The Core Training is for people who are ready to dive deeper into all of the types of power. In the Right Use of Power™ approach, we explore our own relationship with power and increase our skill in navigating our personal and professional relationships.

In our Core Training, you will:

  • Learn about the neurobiology of power and how to counteract the effects of our brains and bodies on power
  • Explore role power differentials and learn how to handle challenging interactions when there is a power difference.
  • Understand the importance of feedback and the difference between intention and impact.
  • Start to understand the shadow aspects of power and how we can work with them.
  • Learn how to work with conflict in power-conscious and generative ways.
  • Better understand systemic power and how it influences the other types of power.
  • Learn about shame and other emotional experiences that may impact our use of power

After our trainings, participants have said they can now:

  • Be more ethically proactive around power dynamics.
  • Engage their personal power with more awareness and presence.
  • Be more aware of the shadow aspects of power.
  • Lean into feedback and conflict with more skill and awareness of power.

Ki Smith

Ki Smith, she/they (Boulder, CO) is an IFS Informed Contemplative Psychotherapist, facilitator, mediator, and coach in the realm of compassionate communication, power-consciousness, and conflict transformation. In her private practice, Warrior Wisdom, Ki works with individuals and people in intimate relationships of all kinds who want to heal relationally by learning how to turn towards inner and outer conflict whenever possible with slowness, curiosity, kindness, and the intention to hold that multiple truths are possible and probable. She also offers a 12-week course which builds these skills and is rooted in the integration of The Right Use of PowerTM, Nonviolent Communication, and Internal Family Systems, entitled “Language for the Open-Hearted Warrior.”

Ki is passionate about co-creating beloved community with others, understanding the integral role this plays in transformational healing of intrapersonal, interpersonal and systemic suffering. She believes that the heart of healing ourselves and our world is coming home to the truth: we each and all inherently belong–and that we truly need one another to re-member this truth.
