Event Details

Right Use of Power™ is at the very heart of ethics. We long for, and are capable of, magnificence in the use of our personal and professional power. And we have all been wounded by misuses of power. The Right Use of Power™ approach to ethics is dynamic and engaging and recognizes that the issues of power in helping relationships are complex. Linking power with heart, this program focuses on increasing skillfulness, engagement, and awareness. It is ethics from the inside out.

Our Core Training is a live, 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.

In our Core Training, you will:

  • Stay in your heart while standing in your strength.
  • Learn about your power style and power parameters
  • Practice simple processes for resolving conflict and repairing relationships.
  • Learn to handle challenging interactions when there is a power difference.
  • De-activate the power barriers that stand in your way.
  • Develop essential skills for using power with ethical wisdom and skill.​

After our trainings, participants have said they can now:

  • Lean in to conflict with more skill.
  • Be more ethically proactive around power dynamics.
  • See the positive potential of down-power roles.
  • Be more aware of the shadow aspects of power.
  • Understand that power differentials serve a valuable purpose.
  • Use the “four dimensions of power” in so many situations.
  • Own their power, both personal and professional, and embrace it with a full “yes!”

Speakers for this event

  • Dr. Cedar Barstow

    Dr. Cedar Barstow

    RUPI Founder & Executive Director

    Founder and Director of Right Use of Power Institute. 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.

    Maya Shaw Gale

    Life Coach & Hakomi Practitioner

    Maya is a BCC Board Certified Life Coach and Certified Hakomi Practitioner with a Master’s degree in Holistic Psychology and over 35 years in the body/mind/spirit wellness field, including many years as a somatic psychotherapist and Trainer of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy. She specializes in working with people who are going through a significant life transition or are feeling a need to ‘reinvent” their lives to be more deeply satisfying and grounded in creativity, spirituality and meaningful purpose. Drawing from her extensive experience in somatic and neuropsychology, energy medicine, embodied mindfulness and indigenous wisdom practices , she guides her clients through an “inner vision quest” of intuitive inquiry and mindful self-reflection. Then, step-by-step, she helps them to navigate through heart-centered processes of empowerment and graceful transformation to a life of joyful fulfillment. Guided by Taoist and Buddhist principles of compassionate presence, non-force and a belief in the interconnectedness of all life, my approach is both gentle and supportive as well as powerfully focused and effective. She sees each individual’s (or couple’s) path of growth and evolution in the context of the greater collective/culture, and particularly with regard to the current evolution of consciousness and paradigm shift that is underway on the planet.
