EVOLUTIONARY POWER INSTITUTE – About us
Through workshops, classes, and private counseling, the Evolutionary Power Institute teaches a core set of practices that help its students live a happier, more fulfilled, joyful life. The EPI community supports each other while students and members learn and practice these tools.
The curriculum of the EPI is based on current research from across such fields as interpersonal neurobiology, theories of emotion, polyvagal theory, animal behavior, energy psychology, and Body-Centered Transformation. EPI’s director, Julie Colwell, PhD, is a psychologist with over three decades of experience as a psychotherapist (working with individuals, couples, families and groups) and leading thousands of people in classes, groups and workshops in the EPI model.
Instead of the traditional, highly limited paradigm of power as domination and control, Evolutionary Power takes humanity collectively to our next level. Evolutionary Power declares that every human has equal value, and that transcending hierarchy maximizes each person’s functioning. Evolutionary Power exists in a field of non-resistance, creates an environment of optimal cognitive functioning, creativity, and health, and supports the way we function best: in connection.
There are Six Facets to Evolutionary Power, including:
Translating the wisdom of your body
Navigating your inner world
Discovering your true power
Evolutionary Power speaks to the next step in human evolution, where each person reaches their potential relationally, clearing old patterns of reactivity so that they might fully express their true selves. This type of power thrives on collaboration, cocreativity, and the celebration of each person’s innate gifts. Ultimately, to live from Evolutionary Power means connecting essence to flow and so manifesting outcomes consciously and directly, resulting in a life that is a walking expression of one’s deepest self.
