“My whole idea of professional ethics was broadened and deepened through seeing ethics in the larger context of right use of power. Personally, I studied my relationship with power, my wounds around power, and how I use power. This was engaging, surprising, and helpful.”
“I'm having fun. I wish I had nothing else to do but the course. You did a remarkable job collecting all this information, establishing it within a spiritual and healing orientation, and then making it so easily accessible and experiential. I am ever more impressed as I go through it.”
“Cedar Barstow has a unique take on the subject of ethics. She focuses on relationship wisdom, resolving difficulties before they escalate, and includes the study of shame dynamics in relation to ethics.”
“This is the best ethics course I know of, including the ones I’ve written!”

"Cedar Barstow has written the best book I've seen on the ethics, dangers, and potentials inherent within helping relationships.

Cedar has assembled the physical volume in a way that is as gorgeous as it is functional." — Bill Plotkin, Ph.D., Author of Soulcraft: Crossing into the Mysteries of Nature and Psyche.
"I am using this to complete some CEUs for recertifying and had only planned to do the minimum required; however, I am excited about how different this book is from other ethics courses I've taken. I am excited about the impact for me personally as well as in my practices and relationships, so I now plan to complete the book as a whole.
