“We are quite literally partners in our own evolution” —Riane Eisler
We’re often told to “become the change” we want to see in the world. But what does that mean? How do we become agents of our own evolution?
Discover and explore the power you hold to shape your life and the world in this powerful 7-session online workshop based on the groundbreaking partnership model developed by internationally renowned thought-leader Riane Eisler.
About the Program
This online workshop will guide you step-by-step through each of the seven relationships described in Eisler’s book The Power of Partnership: Seven Relationships That Will Change Your Life. Working from the inside out, we begin by cultivating deeper Partnership with ourselves, then move outward, exploring how Partnership principles shift our relationships with intimate others, in our workplaces and local communities, our national and international communities, the natural world, and spirituality.
Through weekly presentations, real-time interactive discussions, and provocative assignments, you’ll discover your own answers to what it means for you to live the Partnership Way. The Power of Partnership program culminates in a certificate of completion and designation as a Certified Partnership Practitioner.
- Seven interactive online sessions, including presentations and interactive discussions.
- Weekly exercises for creatively expressing Partnership principles in all aspects of your life.
- Online discussion boards where you can share your reflections and engage in conversation in-between our live sessions.
- Opportunities to talk with amazing people from around the world from the comfort of your own home.
- Membership in an active, ongoing global Alumni Community.
After Completing the Program
As a certified Partnership Practitioner, you’ll join the international community of CPS program alumni, with opportunities to network and share resources with other Partnership advocates through the Partnership Learning Community website. You’ll also be invited to participate in bi-annual online alumni gatherings to hear how Partnership principles are informing the lives, work, and activism of people around the world. Certified Practitioners also receive tuition discounts on other CPS online courses, including the Caring Economy Advocates Program and Changing Our Story, Changing Our Lives: Riane Eisler’s Cultural Transformation Course.
