Empowerment is defined as the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights. The question is what does it take to become empowered? Is the desire for controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights universal, or does it differ by society and culture?
In this one hour, I interview Brian Gruber from his home on the island of Koh Phangan, Thailand. Brian just published his fourth book, co-authored, “Surmountable,” gathering stories of transcendence and transformation from activists, thought leaders, and witnesses to seismic political change.
I discover what inspired Brian to write the book, and what cities and countries he visited in his research. I ask him about the big lessons he learned in people developing their sense of empowerment. And I probe his insights into how we take these lessons from history into our own lives so that we can be empowered to live our best lives.
This is an eye-opening hour, where we enjoy the encyclopedic breadth of Brian’s knowledge and experience in traveling to remote locations around the world to learn about what motivates people toward empowerment and change. Join us LIVE on radio/podcast and in video replay.
