Empowering women way of the world

DEBRANETTE Anne lives by the philosophy that if you teach a woman something, you are really teaching a whole community.

This, she says, is because a woman will pass on the information she learns to the members of her immediate family, her friends and her wider social network.

“You teach a woman and you teach a family because they are the hub,” Debranette said.

“You teach a man and you teach one individual person.

“I’m not being disrespectful to men, but we were designed to multi-task.

“If you look at the hunter-gatherer societies, the men were out hunting and killing for food and the women had to think of so many other things.

“A woman will pass things on to her children, her husband and her friends and hopefully strengthen the family in the process.”

Debranette, a naturopath and remedial massage therapist, is encouraging women everywhere to be strong and proud and says she wants to help them to make the most of their lives.

And what better time to do so than International Women’s Day, which is celebrated across the globe today.

Debranette, who runs a business at Howard called Take Time Out For Yourself, will be hosting women’s empowerment classes throughout the year in a bid to help women better understand their emotions and their potential, and to help them change the negative patterns that hold them back in life.

“I’ve done courses here and nothing ties everything together to give people a solid understanding of what’s inside them.”

She says that by combining chakras (energy centres), food, colour, fragrance and movement, women can gain a greater understanding of where their power comes from and use it in a way that will help them lead fulfilling lives.

“I’ve learnt so much over the years and read so much and I want to use that to help women,” she said.

“This course has been put together for all the women out there who have been hurt emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.

“We gently tiptoe through the chakra levels, discovering how you can grow and change and empower what you have.”

The course will also help women understand how their own – and their family members’ – positions within that family can help define what they need.

Debranette, a mother of two, says patterns exist between, for instance, first-born sons or third-born daughters, and once people understand and recognise those patterns, they can better nurture and guide their own family members to a more balanced way of life.
