Program overview

How we are in the world, how we relate, collaborate and lead arises in part from our experiences with power. Power can be a negative force, creating division, polarization and systems of oppression, or it can be a source of personal growth and collective transformation. Conscious Use of Power deepens our understanding of the conflicts, polarization, and feelings (such as anger, pain, guilt, helplessness, apathy and despair) caused by abuse of power and the resulting trauma. We explore the development of our social identities, both marginalized and dominant, as sources of strength and wisdom, and as places of deep wounding. Together we work to support the inner and outer changes which build solidarity, allyship and collective power.

“This work often feels lonely and I was so grateful to be learning and unpacking in community. Between the exceptional team at Inner Activist and an all-star cast of facilitators, it was possibly the best program experience I've ever had.”

“Immensely useful tools for understanding where we get stuck in all kinds of relationships. These tools are easy to use in real time. The beautiful setting was ideal for taking stock of my journey and reflections on the way forward.”
