Workshop 205A: Friday 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm
Seeing Others and Being Yourself: The Lifelong Practice of Balancing Love and Power in Relationships with Mark Horowitz (74 min.)
Assagioli said that often people with strong will lack love and people with strong compassion lack will. Martin Luther King said, “Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic.” This workshop will explore the qualities of love and power, and the need to balance them in our lives and our relationships.
Educational Objectives: Attendees will be able to:
- Expand their understanding of the nature of both love and power.
- Evaluate their strengths and weaknesses in relation to these qualities.
- Understand how a balance of love and power can serve them in all of their relationships and as they try to make a difference in the world.
