Watching her mother suffer abuse for years, she has been silent for too long. She told her mother they should leave, as her future is also at stake. She now seeks a safe place for both of them.
She deserves more, and her children merit a hopeful future. Her Own Personal Empowerment begins with her children and herself are security and safety and have a future to look forward to.
What they have in common, is the same monster imprisoned them both – inequality. To break free and eliminate the repetitive cycle they have endured, we have developed an innovative solutions-focused Project that will abolish the disparity of discrimination and provide an equitable way of life.
The Australia-wide Fourth Action Plan (2019-2022) raised concerns about the representation of domestic abuse in public opinion and argued that it should form part of a public campaign to educate, change existing belief systems and make it everyone’s responsibility. It also stated that ‘greater resources are needed for rural and regional services” to improve the capacity to respond.
The Equanimity Project® complements the work undertaken in current systems by providing an integrated alternative that responds to major issues identified in this Action Plan. We are a a ground-breaking Australian first initiative, will partner with communities, and corporations to become an important part of the solution in reducing domestic abuse and alleviating homelessness amongst women.
Embedded in most religions, spirituality and belief systems, equanimity is also a pivotal feature within yoga, meditation and mindfulness.
Finding Equanimity is the mental and emotional stability we need to find during and after stressful or traumatic experiences and provides the calm needed to assure our safety, security and clear decision making.
“Services embedded in their local community contexts are more likely to be successful.”
