Power is a quality, a force that gives us, as all qualities in life do, an option to apply it for purposes that may benefit ourselves and others. Or the opposite: Benefit ourselves (or not) at the expense of others. The former possibility is the driving force behind the creation of our website http://www.powerimagery.com.
Power used in service to ourselves and others we call “Power-as-Freedom.” Power used to dominate others, and/or to push us to deplete our life energies we call “Power-as-Control.” Both phases were coined by Elizabeth, whom as you know along with Jerry, created the Power-Imagery Program (PIP).
Our aim in developing this process is to affirm the life-giving power that we hold within ourselves. It touches the altruistic and generous impulses of heart and soul that urge us on to serve one another.
