THE POWER OF PARTNERSHIP

Seven Relationships That Will Change Your Life

Based on the research that brought international recognition to Raine Eisler's groundbreaking work The Chalice and the Blade but addressing the world as it is today, The Power of Partnership offers inspiration and guidance for moving to the better lives we yearn for.

Eisler offers us a new lens, a new paradigm, for seeing the world and living in it. The Partnership Model, which emphasizes mutual respect and a fundamental awareness of the sacredness of all life, creates a solid foundation for families, businesses, communities, and the world. In contrast, the suffocating paradigm that has guided much of recorded history — what Eisler calls the Domination Model — has led individuals and groups, acting out of fear, to oppress women, wage war, terrorize, and subjugate others. Using these simple yet far-reaching models, Eisler shows how political and personal relationships based on domination inevitably result in misery and violence, while those founded on partnership foster respect, love, and an explosion of creativity.

The Power of Partnership gives us the tools to greatly improve every one of the seven key relationships that make up our lives:

  1. Our relationship with ourselves
  2. Our intimate relationships
  3. Our workplace and community relations
  4. Our relationship with our national community
  5. Our international and multicultural relationships
  6. Our relationship with nature and the living environment
  7. Our relationship with our spirit
