Right Relationship with Power & Authority

Cedar Barstow, Founder and Director of the Right Use of Power Institute, discusses the nuanced distinctions around Power with the Integral Center’s Robert MacNaughton.

While it’s common these days to meet people that would prefer that power relationships not exist, Cedar believes they are an inextricable part of life, and therefore need to be explored and understood.

Cedar will be presenting and facilitating at the upcoming Relational Leadership Summit in Boulder Colorado, Oct 26-29th.

Masquerade ~ Revelations on Parade

Saturday, October 28th 8:00pm – 2:00am

Join us as the Relational Leadership Summit 2017 hosts this year’s Halloween party at the Integral Center.

It’s been said that identity is a mask we wear that prevents real contact with other. Some of the most authentic connection we can experience involves allowing our identity to be seen for how it’s employed–enabling emancipation, intimacy, and choice. We can then choose to don our most appropriate identities, and dance within and without contact–free from dependence, allowing interdependence, and flourishing with flow.

At this time of the year when the veils are most thin, come don your internal and external masks as we gather with intention, explore opportunities with intuition, dance with invigoration, and celebrate inspiration.

Doors open at 8pm
+ Convening ~ opening together
+ Dissolving ~ music, dance, play
+ Reintegrating ~ closing together

Music and other offerings to be announced soon…

A special note:
To empower the transition of the IC & deep intentionality of the conference with every facet of our coherence, we will celebrate purposely without any chemical alteration, except, of course, the soma from each other’s genius, good company, and libations generously orchestrated by:
~Natural Highs Maté
~Ish’s Jun
