The One Power is a form of magic in The Wheel of Time. People who can wield the One Power are called channelers. The only known organization of channelers is the Aes Sedai, which is all-female.

Lifetimes ago, both men and women could wield the One Power, but the male half of the power was tainted by the Dark One. In the present day, any man capable of channeling is stripped of his power by the Aes Sedai, a process that can be fatal.[1]


The power inside you... all over the world, there are different names for it. But it's one thing. One power. And women who can touch it... we protect the world.

Changes from the book series[]

The One Power is an adaptation of the concept of the same name Booklink.svg from the book series.

  • Gestures: In the book series, channelers typically do not use gestures and movements once they are proficient in the One Power, especially those who have been trained by the Aes Sedai. However, in the show, more gestures and movements are generally used in order to visually convey the usage of the One Power to the audience.[2]


  • Each actor playing a channeler was allowed to develop their own style of channeling movements with choreographers.[2]
