Meet my guest this week, Patrick Moore, now an Empowerment Self Defense Coach, after turning his back on a law degree, leaving the film industry as a stuntman, and finding his mission in empowering women and girls around the globe in how to stand in their power in voice, body, and mind.
We could have talked for hours – you know those conversations where there is so much depth and one topic leads to another potent topic? Well, this is one of those conversations. It’s provocative and raises a lot of questions relevant to what’s happening with #metoo, girls empowerment, the process of ‘sexual seduction’ happening with predators and young kids.
Patrick had a traumatic personal experience when he was 13 where he was pinned down by a man who tried to molest him. He says he was lucky because it could have been a lot worse and this was a memory that didn’t go away for him. Now he teaches young women and girls how to feel empowered in their voice, body, and mind. This is not just something happening to girls, it’s also happening to boys and men and this violation of another person is NEVER OK. NEVER.
Patrick travels the globe teaching empowerment self defense to girls and women. He originates from Manly Beach, Australia and has traveled to the US quite frequently to teach as well as being invited by the US Embassy to India for the women’s empowerment project.
It’s time for us all to become more aware of what’s really happening to know what to do if it happens to you, your child, or someone you know.
In this episode, we’ll explore:
- An inspiration to Patrick, Gavin de Becker, author of The Gift of Fear.
- What to know and do if you’re ever in a situation where you feel in your gut that you need to get out of this place and away from this person.
- How to use your voice and your body to change a dangerous situation.
- Learn the 3 step Empowerment Makeover
- Discover the difference between self defense and self empowerment.
