Discussing Empowerment

Posted by James Encinas on Nov 28, 2016 3:46 pm

I am James Encinas, an activist, teacher, Pahara Fellow, and author of a forthcoming book about healing from Adverse Childhood Experiences: Wheeling to Healing: Broken Heart on a Bicycle. Having experienced domestic abuse as a child, I am working with Futures Without Violence on an important call to action:


The wound is the place where the Light enters you.
                                      ~ Rumi

May Rumi’s insight bring you to join a conversation through the power of a radio webinar - sponsored by Futures Without Violence on Tuesday November 29, 2016 11 am - 12:30 pm PT / 12 noon - 1:30 pm  MST/ 1 pm - 2:30 pm CST/  2 – 3:30 am ET

A couple of months ago I participated in a podcast that deals with the history and background of movements and programs addressing trauma, racial justice, men's use of violence and fatherhood. You can listen to the podcast at this link: http://youth-employment-economic-issu.madewithopinion.com/releasing-silos-part-1/ 

We ask that you please listen to the podcast, write questions that the conversation elicits in you and submit them to by email to sterlingrose32@gmail.com prior to the program. Then on November 29th join us for a conversation and dialogue. The conversation will focus on how every human has the power to receive and give love. Rather than judging and punishing broken people who’ve lost belief in love’s power, we’ll discuss empowerment. There are ways to develop the ability to love one’s self, and in doing so, be able to love others.

Power without love is reckless and abusive and love without power is sentimental and anemic.
                                                                    ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

When an individual gains true awareness of what happened to them versus what is wrong with them, they achieve true compassion for others. Compassion for others enhances one’s personal responsibility to increase the level of peace and joy in this world.

Please come together as we share our beliefs and our stories on this program. The only thing that separates us as people is our different experiences. Once the power of love is tapped, once hearts open, our collective experiences matter. Use this radio show as an opportunity to be the light.
