Building a Partnership World

New Online Course with Dr. Riane Eisler

In partnership with the Omega Institute, CPS is excited to announce the launch of the new dynamic self-paced online course Building a Partnership World, with instructor Riane Eisler.

Author of the classic book The Chalice and The Blade, Riane Eisler inspired a generation to envision an egalitarian society by exploring peaceful goddess-worshiping cultures from our prehistoric past.

Today, in this dynamic self-paced online course, Riane weaves insights from cultural history, gender studies, economics, and neuroscience to show us how we can construct a more equitable, sustainable, and less violent world based on partnership rather than domination.

Riane helps you make sense of what’s happening in modern times—including issues such as white supremacy, domestic violence, and environmental destruction—and offers new concepts and practical tools that allow you to step forward as a leader for partnership in your own family, workplace, and community.

"Riane Eisler has given me a new perspective on why there is so much unnecessary pain in our society — and how awareness about the dominator/partnership paradigm can create change towards a more caring, sustainable world”.
