“Power is to human beings what gravity is to rivers. It is the vital source that helps us flow through the meandering streams of our lives. It is equally the force with which we build movements, effect change, and act against injustice. Power is the kernel of our becoming. Just as the river aims toward the ocean, so too do humans strive toward our ultimate destination: self-actualisation.” – Minna Salami
What Rivers Teach Us About Power is Minna’s second article in a series on the concept of Exousiance, a new conceptualisation of Power.
Emerge will host an online event on Exousiance with Minna this Friday June 5th at 5PM CET. Details will be announced here soon.
The silencing of women and rivers in institutions of power bridges a connection between reality and myth; it is no wonder river goddesses are vengeful.
