Power Quotes From The Show

Who We Believe We Are

"We believe that who we are is based on other people's opinion of us, our image in the world, our bank account, our looks, what we posses... This is the prevalent idea of how we should define ourselves. It's delusional because these things will never reach an endpoint of satiety or fruition." - Dr. Shefali Tsabary

Are You Raising a Mini-Me?

"When you're a parent, it's crucial you realize you aren't raising a mini-me but a spirit throbbing with its own signature. For this reason it's important to separate who you are from who each of your children is." - Dr. Shefali Tsabary

Men's Conditioning

"Men as a whole need to be reminded of their humanity. Men are not evil and women did not raise toxic men. Men have been conditioned to become toxic because of the prevelant cultural narrative. We need understand how men have been twisted and suffocated by this cultural paradigm as well as understand ourselves as women. But it's in understanding both that we will awaken and be emboldened to the highest empowerment." - Dr. Shefali Tsabary
