Right use of power and influence is at the very heart of ethics.

Developed by Hakomi Therapist and Trainer Dr. 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.

Join me for an online 2-session program on the Hakomi Method. This elegant approach draws upon the perennial wisdom of the East and leading-edge research on psychology and neuroscience. It integrates mindfulness with psychodynamic and body-based psychotherapy to support change without force.

You will learn about Hakomi’s unique approach to working with mindfulness and the body during the therapeutic process and be guided through practices that you can use with your clients.

Although we usually teach our programs through live events, this event is a new online opportunity to sample the method during the pandemic. It will help you decide whether to join one of the many introductory workshops and worldwide training programs that our international faculty of teachers and trainers will offer in the coming years.

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.
Post-pandemic, if you cover my fee and travel expenses, I’d be happy to come to you wherever you are!
