With Author, Retreat Facilitator & Founder of Soulful Power
Christian de la Huerta

We're sorry This course has been cancelled.

Discover how to stop playing small, transform your relationship with your ego and power, and cultivate a life of conscious choice, purpose, and fulfilling connections.



What does it mean to live heroically in the 21st century, where most of the actual dragons and demons to slay are the ones within, in the form of unprocessed trauma and acting out of old patterns that no longer serve you?

Many of us struggle to adopt the word “hero” for ourselves. We tend to associate it with great warriors or first responders people who place their lives at risk for the sake of others, or a greater cause.

What about the rest of us? 

If you’re feeling less fulfilled than you’d like to be… if you’re feeling stagnant or as if something more rewarding is missing… or if your challenges are even greater than that…

know that you do deserve to be the hero of your own life.

For 30 years, author, teacher, and transformational leader Christian de la Huerta has encouraged himself and thousands of others to become such heroes working with leading-edge contemplative practices, breathwork, and a number of transformational tools to understand the issues in your life that strip you of your truest, precious power, which he calls Soulful Power.

According to Christian, you have the capacity to embody an expanded version of heroism to include everyday challenges that lead to your own personal transformation and spiritual awakening ultimately even in service to humanity’s evolution. 

In doing so, you don’t necessarily place yourself at risk of physical survival in the way a warrior hero does yet living in this world with calmness, clarity, emotional regulation, a capacity to love deeply, and an ability to embrace a life of purpose is no less heroic.

In this profoundly empowering course, Christian will guide you in gentle and practical ways to discover your ego mind’s delusions and its need for controlling power, so you can understand and manage its influence over you. 

When you learn how to cultivate a perspective that’s wider than your ego, you develop choice and personal agency over your life and reclaim all that has been lost to misguided ways of thinking and feeling.

Many people, for example, give their power away in relationships of all kinds but nobody has the power to make you happy. Realizing your own happiness involves doing the deep inner work that will help you identify and address the subconscious ways that you sabotage relationships. Doing so frees you up to have more conscious relationships, either with a romantic partner or with family, friends, colleagues, or members of your community.


During this soul-empowering journey, you’ll:

  • Learn guided meditations to connect with the hero within to step fully into these acts of tremendous courage and selflessness that are truly the stuff of heroes
  • Explore how to heal from your wounds and transcend past traumas by turning your gaze inward to your greatest challenge your own core beliefs
  • Stop playing small by learning how to prevent your ego mind from being stuck in a self-made prison of fear and limitation or selling out for the illusion of security
  • Discover that there truly is a hero inside of you!
  • Develop your power of forgiveness refusing to be stuck in victim consciousness in adversarial relationships with others and to life
  • Realize that true growth does not happen while you’re in your comfort zone you can break free from the old, tired, and boring pattern of react and regret when you move yourself onto the hero path
  • Explore what it means to have conscious relationships in which both people are doing the work to create more harmony between you
  • Learn some of your basic relationship patterns that might have you giving your power away and settling for less
  • Answer the questions for yourself: Now what? What will I do with all this? How will I express my unique human potential, my inner hero, in the world?
  • And much more…

Are you ready to live into the sense of playful freedom that your life can be? Evolve your self-confidence? Realize inner peace? Understand and release limiting beliefs and patterns that have been holding you back in life? Feel enlivened and energized? 

It’s time to think and feel in fresh ways to become a new person delving deeply within, confronting your false ego’s toxic stories, and returning with a healed perspective on your past. It’s only from this new place that you can meaningfully engage with yourself through inner dialogue and develop a powerful foundation from which to extend yourself to the world through conscious relationships.

Module 1: Invoke Your Inner Hero Reframe Your “Struggles” as Opportunities to Live a Conscious, Empowered & Expressive Life (March 2)


It’s time to dig deeper than the storybook and cinematic narratives of high adventure in lands, spaces, and dimensions far, far away redefining heroism and what it can mean for you to live a truly heroic life in the 21st century. This is the first step in response to an inspirational inner call to shift how you think about yourself and begin to see yourself as a hero!

It can be unpleasant to investigate the hidden parts of yourself. Framing it as heroic gives it a workable and accurate context. This is your opportunity to explore ways of thinking and living that are nothing less than heroic and get to the bottom of why you do what you do. Only then can you make the changes necessary for the betterment of yourself and your life.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Experience a guided meditation to connect with the hero within to step fully into these acts of tremendous courage and selflessness that are truly the stuff of heroes
  • Explore how to heal from your wounds and transcend past traumas by turning your gaze within to find and challenge the real monsters in your life your core beliefs
  • Begin to free yourself from your conditioning, managing your fears for the sake of personal growth, spiritual evolution, and to be a reliable resource to your family and friends
  • Learn how overriding defensiveness and embodying the power of vulnerability with mindful, conscious self-observation facilitates being able to take the high road in interpersonal conflict
  • Discover that there truly is a hero inside of you!

Module 2: Understand the True Nature of Your Ego to Release Its Toxic Grip Over Your Consciousness So You Can Be the Real You (March 9)


If you want to be free, you have to understand your prison keeper your EGO! Why do you take things so personally? Why do you engage in cycles of react/regret? Taking on attitudes of victimhood, holding judgments, and projecting are all governed by the ego. It’s complicated because it’s also not entirely bad. 

There is much confusion in the world about what the ego is. Many will likely think it means arrogance or an otherwise inflated sense of self importance. The ego is that, yes, yet it’s so much more. Because there’s an abundance of confusion about this, it’s critically important to understand this unique aspect of our minds if we want to understand why we do the things we do and consequently free ourselves from subconscious and self-defeating behavior patterns.

In this module, you’ll explore fresh, insightful ways of understanding your ego that will shift the way you see yourself. This will help you:

  • Refuse to allow your ego to keep you playing small, stuck in a self-made prison of fear and limitation
  • Free yourself from the past by realizing the power of forgiveness refusing to be stuck in victim consciousness, in an adversarial relationship to others and to life
  • Realize that true growth does not happen while you’re in your comfort zone you can break free from the old, tired, and boring pattern of react and regret when you move yourself onto the hero path
  • Push through laziness, risk aversion, and the desire for comfort and safety in order to step into your authentic life’s purpose
  • Take on personal accountability for all our actions and responsibility for all situations in our lives

Module 3: Embody Your Soulful Power to Thrive With the Fullness of All Your Energy (March 16)


Many have been conditioned to mistrust power and avoid claiming it for ourselves… Have you ever said yes when inside you really felt no? We’ve all at times overridden our true beliefs, desires, preferences, and even dreams to avoid conflict or not rock the boat too much. 

What if there were different ways of looking at power? What if there was a way to step into your personal power in a way that was not about hierarchy, abuse, fear, force, and domination? 

This module will transform your relationship to power. It will help you see more clearly how we have been conditioned to think of power as dangerous, or bad, a source of abuse and a corrupting influence and help you develop a strong practice of self advocacy. 

In this module, you’ll:

  • Understand the difference between worldly vs. soulful power in a way that will make it easier for you to deeply cultivate your personal power
  • Explore practices to own all parts of your rejected self reclaiming your energies back into your center
  • Become aware of why you give your power away and get stuck in power struggles resulting in making better relationship choices
  • Experience a greater sense of confidence and self empowerment
  • Discover how to reclaim your power and express it in the world authentically no longer settling for less and able to access many more opportunities

Module 4: Deepen Into Your Soulful Power to Ground in Sovereign Presence for Greater Self-Worth & Confidence (March 23)


What are your personal triggers? In which relationships and situations do you tend to give your power away? Once you understand these concepts, you can discover your patterns then you can go through life more aware and make different choices about how you are and who you become in relationships.

We dive even deeper into the themes of the previous module regarding issues of power investigating your personal patterns and how they reveal your shadows and fallibilities in the context of relationships with family, friends, lovers, spouses, colleagues, community members, and others.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Become better equipped to create healthy boundaries
  • Discover some of your basic relationship patterns that might have you giving your power away and settling for less
  • Become more aware about situations and relationships that have you selling out on your power
  • Understand how you’ll be able to bring choice back into the equation by becoming more clear about your triggers and patterns
  • Begin to notice a much deeper sense of self worth and expanded levels of self-confidence

Module 5: Step Fully Into Conscious Relationships of All Kinds for Deeper Partnership, Healing & Evolution (March 30)


Most people give their power away in relationships of all kinds but you and your partner can actually use the container of relationship to heal yourselves. 

As Ram Dass often shared, “relationships are the yoga of the West.” Doing it unconsciously is about using the relationship to fill a perceived lack, such as thinking, “If I have you, I’ll be happy” but nobody can really make you happy if you’re not fundamentally resourced with happiness on your own.

Besides gaining fresh ways of framing relationships like thinking of the relationship as a garden, one you’re both responsible for you’ll also identify some of the subconscious ways in which we can sabotage our relationships and keep love at bay

And you’ll better understand why it is that sometimes relationships feel like an old and tired movie rerun: same drama, same issues, same patterns only with a different co-lead.

And, while this module focuses on romantic, intimate relationships, the wisdom gained will impact all types of relationships, in every area of your life. 

In this session, you’ll:

  • Discover how to have relationships that have a chance of working
  • Explore what it means to have a conscious relationship with both people doing the work to make the relationship a harmonious container
  • Learn the various levels of conscious relationships
  • Understand why we get stuck in patterns of relationships that sometimes feel like we’re in the same boring movie and explore how to alter those patterns
  • Discuss how to release obstacles to love, asking a very important question: What is love, really?

Week 6: Discover & Embody Your Purpose to Find Fulfillment in Self Expression & Service (April 6)


Getting clear about your purpose is a critical part of the ever-evolving process of being human we all have a unique fingerprint of personal impact that we’re meant to express upon everything we touch.

But what does it mean to have purpose, and how can you discover yours? In this module, we’ll look at a variety of ways we can find and express it and gauge ourselves in terms of how fully we are 1) aware of our purpose, and 2) expressing it. 

In this module, you’ll:

  • Discover why it’s important to know your purpose to find and follow your bliss (and sometimes bliss-ters!)
  • Engage in compassionate inner inquiry, going into the fears that hold you back
  • Understand how to stop playing small confronting that part of you who sells out for the illusion of security that a biweekly paycheck provides and give expression to the unique human potential alive in you
  • Explore the spectrum of purpose and conscious leadership
  • Experience a practice to help reveal your true purpose

Week 7: Unleash Your Inner Hero to Bless Yourself, Your Family, Your Community & Our World (April 13)


Now you’re empowered now what? You don’t need any more information. What’s needed is transformation! That comes from continuing on with this set of teachings, integrating them, and applying them to your life.

In this final module, it’s time to make an action plan so that this experience doesn’t stay just at the level of “good information” it’ll provide you with tools and focus to continue developing your heroic nature for ongoing healing and evolution.

In this final session, you’ll:

  • Look at why goals and resolutions tend to fall short and learn to dive deeper and discover why you want what you want (and if that reason is ultimately good enough)
  • Learn to identify sources of fear and potential obstacles to navigate resistance and prevent self-sabotage, getting to a place of understanding core motivators
  • Create an action plan that is doable, manageable, and self-rewarding to use all the knowledge, wisdom, and understanding to do something real, actionable, and consequential in the world
  • Experience a guided practice to help you get to the core drivers and motivators of your life
  • Answer the questions for yourself: Now what? What will I do with all this? How will I express my unique human potential, my inner hero, in the world?

Power Practices
PDF From Christian de la Huerta

Power practices integrate into your daily life to support power, presence, connection, confidence, and authenticity. Time- and field-tested by Christian over 30 years, they’re a culmination of practices and exercises that have transformed his life and the lives of his clients and take on challenges, such as identifying who your heroes are… understanding and healing your ego… coming to terms with your beliefs about power… paths to Soulful Power… and much more. To make effective use of these practices, you’ll want to find a quiet place to sit down with a journal or digital writing tablet. Take on a couple of practices at a time, and keep repeating that process until they become second nature.


Awakening the Soul of Power, Chapter 2: “The Empire of the Ego”
PDF From Christian de la Huerta

If we are to truly heal, it’s necessary to first understand “the ego” that subset of “you” that’s fabricated purely out of your mental activity and operates with a different set of priorities than those held by the deeper and wiser You that is your eternal divine nature. This chapter from Christian’s most recent book, Awakening the Soul of Power, will help you understand the ego and identify the areas of your life where it’s been running the show for way too long!

“Be ready for [Christian’s workshop] to change you for the better.”

If you have not gifted yourself the experience of one of Christian's workshops or retreats, I highly recommend that you do. I have now attended at least 10 and have loved each experience. Connection, personal healing, support, and accountability, and always a truly beautiful group of souls converging together with this magnificent man, brother, and friend. It was the best gift I've given myself over the last five years. Be ready for it to change you for the better.
Eric Sletteland

“Yesterday I thought I would break and open thousands of times more.”

All my love and deep gratitude for holding that Sacred Masculine where I can trust and open more to love. You hold a space of deep integrity and trust. Yesterday I thought I would break and open thousands of times more. Love is so amazing and sweet.
Adriana Rodriguez

“You changed my fear to trust!”

I am blessed by your presence in my life. You changed my fear to trust!
Kathleen Kennedy

“... the work [Christian] does is so deep that you never really sense it fading even years afterward.”

I can’t really say enough about Christian’s individual work and about the value of his retreats. I’ve attended one of his Soulful Power retreats. His work has always inspired me to get in touch with and stay in touch with my deeper, more-grounded “internal self.” His dedication to his fellow women and men is profoundly inspirational and his deep compassion is awesome; not just to observe but to actually feel. The incredible thing is that the work he does is so deep that you never really sense it fading even years afterward. That’s probably because his methods help you to find your actual “path” and once you’re on that path, he encourages you to stay on it once and for all.
Michael Walker

“[Christian’s retreat] saved my marriage!”

The best decision I’ve ever made was coming to a retreat! It changed my life forever! It saved my marriage! So so grateful!!!

More Praise for Christian de la Huerta…

“I found it to be an introspective work that is a balm for the soul of anyone searching for truth and answers to life’s difficult questions…”

It is a rare occurrence indeed when a book not only delivers on its message but also gives you practical, straightforward, and incredibly wise ways in which to apply the teachings put forth in “Awakening the Soul of Power.” I found it to be an introspective work that is a balm for the soul of anyone searching for truth and answers to life’s difficult questions, and I truly look forward to the rest of Christian de la Huerta’s amazing Calling All Heroes series. It inspired me to purchase his previous book, “Coming Out Spiritually: The Next Step.”
Gloria Estefan, singer, songwriter, multiple Grammy awardwinner

“Christian de la Huerta has been one of those visionaries that I believe to have a real understanding of what is called upon within each of us to make change.”

Christian de la Huerta has been one of those visionaries that I believe to have a real understanding of what is called upon within each of us to make change. In his new book, “Awakening the Soul of Power,” he has created a blueprint for self-awareness that will make each of us a hero or heroine in the battle to not only change personally but in the process change the planet. Another remarkable book from a remarkable man.
David Mixner, civil rights activist and author of Stranger Among Friends

“[Christian’s] is a voice worth heeding in this time of the dark night of our species.”

I have had the privilege of knowing Christian for over 30 years and have come to respect and admire his integrity that shines through in all that he does and attempts to do (including his breathwork, which I have profited richly from). In this book he talks about our becoming the “heroes” we are called to be. The theological word for hero is saint. The teachings and practices he lays out here are lessons appropriate to discovering holiness once againnot only our capacity for it but everyone’s capacity for it. Is it time for holiness? For courage, creativity, and adventure? Christian thinks so, and he offers a useful and tried map forward based on his own inner work and decades of focused retreat gatherings where life stories rise, and hearts catch fire. His is a voice worth heeding in this time of the dark night of our species.
Matthew Fox, author of Original Blessing and The Tao of Thomas Aquinas
