About the Course

  • Would you like to experience deeper, more intimate connections with your partner, family members, or colleagues?
  • Are you called to join in community and discover new pathways of healing and authentic harmony and connection between women and men?
  • Are you yearning for spiritual forms of intimacy and healing that go beyond traditional therapeutic and psychological modalities?

If you answered yes to any of these, you are like many of us who are inspired to heal and transform gender relations.

GERI 1Join us for this interactive and experiential online course, and embark upon a new form of spiritual healing and reconciliation work that builds trust and compassionate communication through a skillful combination of interactive activities, spiritual practice, and transformative group process.  This carefully facilitated course creates a safe forum where we can awaken a deeper empathy and understanding and begin to discover practical pathways towards healing and transforming our relationships.  Together we can begin to re-form relations between women and men without blame or shame, and move through the often unspoken, unconscious attitudes, fears and reactions around gender and sexuality, to reclaim the mutual harmony and reverence that is our birthright.

 

GERI 2Developed over 29 years, and conducted with thousands of participants on six continents, the Gender Equity and Reconciliation International (GERI) program has a global reputation as an innovative breakthrough in healing gender relations.

Course Focus

This program focuses primarily on healing between men and women of all ages and sexual orientations who want to focus principally on the much-needed transformative healing between the sexes.  While people of all gender identities are welcome to attend, this program functions primarily within the categories of male and female, recognizing that every human being embodies a blended mix of masculine and feminine energies and qualities.  In addition to this program, which focuses on restoring right relations between women and men, GERI also has other specialized programs focusing on gender healing for LGBTQIA+ communities.

 

Program Objectives

  • Engage in a safe forum to jointly unmask and transform gender and sexuality conditioning.
  • Deepen mutual awareness, sensitivity, and healing between women and men.
  • Cultivate respectful dialogue and authentic sharing between the sexes on sensitive gender issues.
  • Practice and experience deep truth-telling, acknowledgment, and listening in relation to what has shaped you as a man, woman, or person of any gender, inclusive of sexual orientation.
  • Discover new ways and possibilities in gender relations – imbued with mutual appreciation, compassion, and trust.
  • Build collaborative communities of practice, committed to transforming gender relations.
  • Learn practical tools and frameworks for reconciliation, including communication skills for addressing conflicts.
