For years Jennifer Russell’s work has been about showing women how to source their power and how to be more powerful in more ways.
As lesbians it’s important for us to learn this.
Because women are attracted to power.
We want to have power and be empowered, but our culture tends to have a “conflicted” relationship with the word power (and with the idea of power).
Power scares people.
And yet, we can’t be powerful in our lives if we are threatened by the idea of power.
Jennifer Russell teaches that the first step in accessing our power is to make sure we intend to use it in service of something transcendent, for the good of all.
There is no reason to feel “conflicted” about being powerful if we know in our heart that we are using power as a source of good.
There are many ways of being powerful.
There are different types of power we can tap into.
And Jennifer Russell has created one of my favorite frameworks for understanding this topic.
In this episode of Women Wanting Women I talk with Jennifer Russell about what she calls “The Four Faces of Incorruptible Power.”
During the interview she breaks down what the four different faces are, how we can express them, and what the “shadow side” of that power is (so we can avoid “over-using” the power in ways that cause harm.)
This is definitely not an episode you want to miss.
