We're going to talk about power all month long. This week, we start with talking to Elizabeth Lesser, the author of several bestselling books, including Cassandra Speaks: When Women are the Storytellers, the Human Story Changes; Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow and Marrow: Love, Loss & What Matters Most. She is the co-founder of Omega Institute, recognized internationally for its workshops and conferences in wellness, spirituality, creativity, and social change. She has given two popular TED talks, and is one of Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul 100, a collection of a hundred leaders who are using their voices and talent to elevate humanity.
Why the word power make us so uncomfortable,
How culture is built on storytelling
How our emotions are a form of intelligence
and the catch 22 of women's power
