Event Details

Note: This round of online Core Training meets from 10 am-2 pm MST over four days: May 18th, 19th, 22nd, and 23rd, 2023.

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.

    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.
