We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

Take a step beyond women’s and men’s work. Experience the power of community healing and reclaim the right to live in mutual trust, joyous reverence, and spiritual communion.

Together in this workshop, women and men jointly confront the historical and cross-cultural origins of gender oppression and exploitation, and learn to collaborate skillfully.

Through the transformative process of Gender Reconciliation—applying principles of truth and reconciliation to gender and sexuality injustice—we create a safe forum to unmask and relinquish pervasive layers of social gender conditioning.

Utilizing a range of experiential modalities, including small group work, interactive exercises, focused and sensitive dialogue, short presentations, contemplative practice, breath work, and creative expression, we:

  • Explore scientific insights applied to consciousness and gender relations
  • Discover relational skills for intimacy beyond sexual and romantic stereotypes
  • Develop greater awareness of the hidden traps of personal and social gender conditioning
  • Learn practical skills for daily living in integrity as women and men in society

Developed and tested in eight countries over the past 20 years, the Gender Reconciliation process moves beyond equal rights and mutual respect to mutual reverence, restoring the sacred covenant between masculine and feminine.

This workshop is open to women and men of all sexual orientations and is useful for helping professionals.

Join us for an 8-day immersive experience by attending both the Women & Power Conference and this workshop.

Scholarships available.
