We believe that empowerment comes in many shades and shapes. How can you self empower without disempowering other beings? Can you empower a being that is unwilling or unable to act upon the power they are being presented with? Are corporations really trying to empower us? Advertisements sure seem to tell us so. As with all issues we discuss on the show empowerment is a complex and multifaceted issue worthy of your attention. It also happens to be something in short supply. We are fortunate to have author and professional empowerer to help us see the forest through the trees.
