Helping Women Strengthen Their Resolve, And Their Lives
Dedicated To Dr. Jean Baker Miller *
Once we women recognize power as “the capacity to implement” [Dr. Jean Baker Miller] — versus the traditional male model of power as power over another — we can commence solid, purposive reconstruction of our lives. For many women, shame, anxiety and fear of ‘being powerful’ — and therefore, hurtful / destructive to those we care about — has kept us tethered to painful, inadequate, and often downright destructive situations and relationships. Guided by Dr. Jean Baker Miller’s core principles, this show helps women clarify unhealthy thinking, strengthen their resolve, acquire important information, and move solidly forward into satisfying, secure lives.
