THE EMPOWERED MODEL

Mind
(Psychological)

Our hard drive & central processing unit: stores and processes information, knowledge and experience. Enables situational awareness and conducts ongoing threat assessments through analysing information delivered from our key senses – sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste and intuition. Continually adapts to each situation and develops a strategic response to potential threats.

Body
(Physical)

Our hardware: the physical use of key senses to monitor the environment and identify potential threats. Physically implements the chosen strategy, such as: alternate routes, tactical communication options and fight and/or flight responses. Adapts and utilises the surrounding environment – regardless of confines and including items found within – to gain the advantage and escape a threat.

Spriit
(Emotional)

Our life force: heart and soul, commonly referred to as Prana or Chi (Qi) in yoga and martial arts. Our source of innate strength, courage and will to live – to survive! Assists us to effectively manage any emotional and psychological implications, including post incident.
