Healing the Divide: from MeToo to WeTogether
Discovering new pathways of healing, harmony and connection across the genders
This interactive session introduces the Gender Equity and Reconciliation International (GERI) program and provides an experiential taste of its methodology. Developed over 30 years across six continents, GERI applies principles derived from South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation process to gender and sexual injustice to build trust and compassionate communication through interactive activities and group processes. Together, women, men, and people of all genders and sexual orientations can jointly confront sensitive and often taboo issues— without shame or blame—and collaborate skillfully to reach a place of newfound respect, trust, and even mutual reverence. You are warmly invited to join this experiential introduction to the GERI process and discover its auspicious potential for establishing “beloved community.” With: GERI co-founders Cynthia Brix and Will Keepin and GERI facilitators Silvia Araya-Fischer, Garrett Evans and Hugo Sanchez.
