[Symposium Presentation] Two studies using the Well-Being Picture Scale (WPS), translated into Korean, are reported. The relationship of a 4-week Chakra Meditation intervention to power and well-being was examined at baseline, mid- and end-point using a quasi-experimental design. Significant interaction effects were found between power and group (p<.01), and well-being and group (p<.05). Cronbach's Alpha reliability of the WPS at baseline, mid- and end-point were .83, .89, and .91, respectively. Correlations between the WPS and Barrett's measure of power were significant (p<.01). The second study examined validity between the WPS and Barrett's measure of power in a sample of 881 Koreans. Cronbach's Alpha of the WPS was .84, and correlation between the WPS and Barrett's measure of power was significant (r = .52, p<.01). Married people had significantly higher well-being than single people (p<.01); housewives had the highest scores (X = 54) while people with no jobs had the lowest (X= 46).
