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.
The Equanimity Project Australia is an innovative charitable organisation that articulates the story of two women who have never met but both are trapped in their own prison. One had her freedom taken away by no other reason than misfortune, and the other was locked in a cycle of mental and physical abuse.
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 are implementing innovative solutions and focused Projects that will abolish the disparity of discrimination and provide an equitable way of life.
The Equanimity Project® complements the work undertaken in current systems by providing an integrated alternative that responds to major issues identified in the Fourth Action Plan.
As an organisation comprising lived experience individuals, we know that finding equanimity is important to the survival, emotional balance and capability to move forward in life.
Embedded in most religions, spirituality and belief systems, “Equanimity” is also a pivotal feature within yoga, meditation and mindfulness and brings the qualities of dignity, poise and composure.
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. It was the appropriate and perfect name for our organisation and is important to our mission, vision and purpose.
