"The power within you is infinite. Plug into your higher self for a surge that will propel you to places you thought unattainable."
- Mary Frances Winters
Founded by Rebeccah Bennett in 2010 as a division of Emerging Wisdom LLC, InPower Institute is a center for community healing and optimal living. At InPower, we understand that our individual and collective well-beings are inextricably intertwined and that the best means for advancing both can be found right at our core.
For us the implications of this truth are profound - to heal the persistent traumas of human life and liberate our species’ full potential we must consciously engage the untapped power that lies within us and our communities. Unleashing this power spurs unparalleled human growth, creativity and connection, endowing us with the very capacities needed to create a more just and vibrant world.
Our work is to help people effectively utilize their power so that they manifest wholeness and well-being in every aspect of their lives. To successfully perform this work, we have established a community of healers, sages, seekers, teachers, change agents, activists, spirit workers, earth allies, artists, revolutionaries and blooming humans who share our deep-seated commitment to both self-actualization and community transformation. We come together in pursuit of love-centered ways of being that help us to reevaluate and reject the fear-based conditioning that underlies most human suffering and all forms of oppression. Individually and collectively, we call upon our courage, passions, resources, connections, skills and wisdom to turn life’s messes into medicines that are capable of healing us, our species and our planet.
As part of our work, we co-create community healing spaces that:
Tend to both the core and the conditions of our people
Lovingly bear witness to our truths
Affirm our power and sufficiency under all circumstances
Inspire and encourage our most authentic self-expressions
Provide platforms for us to exercise our purpose and our power
Challenge beliefs, structures and systems that endanger our lives
Bring us into right relationship with ourselves and others
Seed the healed future for succeeding generations
Our reach is global, extending to all who endeavor to positively transform themselves and the human condition. Yet our roots are deeply embedded in the fertile ground of African diaspora families and cultures; black womanhood and sisterhood; ancestor reverence; indigenous wisdom traditions; liberation theology; and movements for LGBTQIA rights and racial, social and economic justice. We acknowledge, with gratitude, our roots for they anchor our identities and shape our living and healing practices. They also guide our work, enabling us to stand our ground when the forces of fear try to confuse us or destroy that which we hold dear. We owe our resilience, genius and magic to these life-giving sources, which simultaneously connect us to our most authentic selves and to that which is greater than ourselves.
Our reach is global... yet our roots are deeply embedded in African diaspora families and cultures.
