Course: Resonance Power
Cultivating Resonance Power – For Leaders Committed to Transformation
November 1, 2018 to January 24, 2019
Do you feel inspired to transform the organization or system you are engaged with, yet you feel inadequate with your power? Do you have a bigger vision for yourself that you have shied away from pursuing? Do you sometime have to suppress your own voice to keep the peace or not "rock the boat"? Do you feel frustrated by disempowering inter-personal dynamics? Or perhaps you’ve been given feedback that you need to show more vulnerability in how you lead. If any of these resonate with you, this course may be for you.
Today’s environment asks for leaders who lead as a full and authentic person. We invite you to join us in exploring how to activate and express what we call resonance power, the power that harmonizes masculine and feminine through your presence, expressions and actions. In this course, you will learn how to access your power sources, identify new pathways, and remove blocks that restrict power in yourself, your relationships and your leadership.
In a co-creative, collective learning environment, you will explore your power from these dimensions:
- What are the energetic blueprints of masculine and feminine powers in consciousness development? How have our engrained social conditions compromised the fullest expression of both the masculine and feminine powers in men and women? How do we expand beyond our gendered social conditioning and embody a feminine-masculine balanced power?
- How do we embody and express power through three power centers: head, heart and hara? (Hara, also called Dan Tian, is the eastern spiritual term for the power center around the naval. It represents the deep wisdom and power of the body and ancestral lineage.) These three centers anchor our mind, spirit and body/ancestral lineage.
- How have our rational and embodied powers become disconnected from one another through our cultural and social conditioning? How do we re-integrate them and restore a more wholesome expression of power that is more authentic and centered?
- How do we engage our intuition and felt-senses to access a bigger version of ourselves (a Self that lies beyond what our mind knows?) How do we invite this bigger self to collaborate with the version of Self we do know? How will this collaboration wield our agency to serve and transform people and systems around us?
This course will be highly experiential. We will engage the participants in whole group discussions, break-out group inquiries, embodied exercises and playful games to activate both our left and right-brain neurological pathways. We believe a left and right-brain balanced approach is essential both in learning and activating dormant power sources. We will ask participants to work on a real-life case where they explore the growing edge of their personal power in collaboration with the cohort.
Spring Cheng and Megan Staczek join forces in facilitating the course. Spring is the co-founder of Resonance Path Institute, an organization dedicated to teaching and researching consciousness transformation at the enlivening edge between eastern and western cultures. She brings her training in both Taoism and Chinese medicine into her practice of coaching and teaching.
Megan is an executive coach and organizational development consultant. She is the founder of Capacity Group, an organization dedicated to helping leaders and teams expand how they think and lead to create new possibilities and meaningful results for themselves and others. Megan’s work in Organizational Effectiveness, Leadership and Team Development and her work in Adult Development brings an expansive lens to the work of increasing leadership capacity.
The course will begin on November 1, 2018 and end on January 24, 2019.
