A WORKSHOP WITH CYNTHIA BRIX AND WILLIAM KEEPIN
September 29 - October 1, 2017

Gender inequality and patriarchal institutions have long plagued society, leading to the disastrous global reality of gender injustice. To help transform these afflictions, the Gender Equity and Reconciliation International (GERI) process, developed on six continents over 25 years, has introduced a practical innovative methodology that creates safe forums for women and men of all sexual orientations to collaborate skillfully to reach a place of mutual resolution, healing and, often, forgiveness.

Join GERI co-founders, Rev Cynthia Brix and Will Keepin with other skilled professional facilitators to participate in a powerful three-day group process and experience the transformative power of gender equity and reconciliation for yourself. This workshop is especially relevant for professional facilitators, NGO leaders, social justice workers, spiritual or religious leaders, mental health professionals, activists, therapists, teachers, and social change agents.

Elements of this experiential introduction to Gender Equity and Reconciliation include:
-cultivating compassionate presence, safety, deep listening
-cross-gender witnessing, interactive small groups
-speaking truth to gender and sexuality experience
-healing and reconciliation ceremony
-interactive inquiry, plenary questions and responses

While GERI work is primarily focused on transforming the longstanding patriarchal oppressions and injustices between women and men, all gender identities are also affirmed and welcome to participate in this workshop.
