Right Use of Power

with Julia Corley, Certified Hakomi Teacher & Therapist

October 30, 2015 | Friday, 9:30am-5:30pm
7 CE contact hours | $145

This course meets the ethics education requirement for license renewals with the NC Board of Massage & Bodywork Therapy, as well as recertification with NCBTMB.

Right use of power and influence is at the very heart of ethics. Developed by Hakomi Therapist and Trainer Cedar Barstow, the Right Use of Power approach focuses on the relational dynamics that bring ethics to life. Engaging both heart and mind, core concepts include grounding in a felt sense of both sides of the power differential, exploration of power parameters and under- and over-uses of power, and working with practical processes for resolving relationship difficulties. This workshop will be highly experiential, with focus on awareness, skill, and pro-activity.

Power is simply the ability to have an effect, or to have influence – but the right use of this influence is both simple and complex. Personally and in positions of trust, the right use of power is the use of power to accomplish goals; prevent, heal, and repair harm; and to promote well-being for all.

The power spiral model is at the heart of Right Use of Power. Increasing skillfulness is learned through a spiraling process of gaining understanding and awareness at higher and higher levels of complexity, inclusivity, and transcendence. As you gain the knowledge and skills you need to use your power wisely, you’ll explore and engage with these four dimensions of the spiral:

Be informed: Informed Use of Power
Be compassionate: Conscious Use of Power
Be connected: Caring Use of Power
Be skillful: Skillful Use of Power

Right Use of Power is a dynamic way to explore issues of ethics and power, both personal and professional. This study can be profoundly restorative and empowering. This approach brings heart and soul to ethics, and builds sensitivity and awareness to the use of power and influence.

Customized Workshops and Retreats

I’d love to offer a workshop or retreat for you and yours.

What do you want to explore, nurture, let go of, celebrate, mourn, or punctuate?
Let’s create a sacred space for what has heart and meaning now.

My facilitation is grounded in years of personal and professional healing practice; my style is relaxed, loving, and spacious. I believe in having our time together be mostly experiential, so you don’t just hear about the subject matter, you feel it.

I can custom design something for you, or we can co-create it together. If you can gather a group of ten or more and cover my fee and travel expenses, I’d be happy to come to you wherever you are.
