Welcome to How Dare She.
I can’t wait to get going and start to connect and build relationships; relationships that will be so nourishing and empowering.
Intention One: Empowerment is Cognitive – It helps us ‘See Choices and to Challenge Unhelpful Beliefs’.
The first intention of empowerment I want to set out is the cognitive. What I mean by “cognitive” is that empowerment can be described as a person’s new ability to see options and alternatives that they didn’t see before. The result of this is that the person believes they have new choices they didn’t have before or a new freedom they haven’t experienced before. Of course, formally, they always had these choices, but they didn’t see that they had them. Empowerment is the seeing.
Intention Two: Empowerment is Linguistic – We Gain a New Vocabulary for Expression and this Makes us Capable of New Experiences.
The second intention of empowerment I want to set out is the linguistic. What I mean by “linguistic” is that empowerment comes from (and gives us) a new language for self-expression and, with that new language, we become capable of new experiences.
Intention Three: Empowerment is Emotional – We Develop a New Relationship to, and Understanding of, Our Emotions
The third intention of empowerment I want to set out is the emotional. What I mean by “emotional” is that empowerment gives us a new emotional vocabulary (as described above) and so a new emotional range (we become capable of a greater number and depth of emotions) but also a new relationship to our emotions. Disempowered people do not have emotions. Very often they are either very cut off from their emotions or they are so deeply immersed in them that they can’t see a way out. In the first case, a disempowered person has such difficulty feeling uncomfortable feelings, they suppress them and so, inevitably, these feelings come out in unhealthy ways.
Welcome to How Dare She, together we will shift minds and empower ourselves and future generations.
