About the event

“Power without love is reckless abusive and love without power is sentimental and anemic.” Martin Luther King

Power and love are the currencies between us. Whenever we meet another consciously or unconsciously we so often make a quick assessment of the power balance between us and generally speak and act accordingly.  How can we always keep the balance of love with power?

In this retreat we will deepen our understanding of both love and power …

• how to have power with another no matter the ‘position’ of the other.

• the balance between tolerating and facing the inappropriate behaviour of another.

• power and innocence

• soft power vs hard power

• the mystery of the duality of love and power

Facilitator: Maureen Chen is the Coordinator of the Yarra Valley Living Centre and author of Mystic at the Edge, a Western Woman Coloured by Asia. Maureen spent four years in India working on the Future of Power project and has delved deeply into the aspect of power.
