Gender Reconciliation
The Alchemy of Collective Healing between Women and Men

Are you tired of the gender wars? Join a growing number of women and men who are ready to take a new step toward mutuality and healing between the sexes. Satyana’s gender reconciliation work provides a unique opportunity to:

  • Experience the power of women and men healing together
  • Cultivate new forms of authentic intimacy
  • Discover the spiritual and cosmological essence of gender
  • Explore the hidden depths of our own gender conditioning
  • Learn the skills of facilitating gender reconciliation

Gender Reconciliation:
Year-long Professional Training

Boulder, Colorado: Nov 13-18, 2001;
Mar 3-9, June 24-30, & Nov 10-16, 2002

Satyana Institute is inaugurating a yearlong training program in Gender Reconciliation. The program is being offered in response to growing demand from many participants and professionals in our Gender Reconciliation programs. The training group will meet in four week-long modules over a period of one year. This will allow deep exploration of gender dynamics, as well as intensive experience and training in the rich complexities and challenges that characterize the facilitation of gender healing work.

This training program is open to two general groups of applicants:

  1. Professionals and individuals who seek to develop the practical skills of facilitating gender reconciliation work, as developed by Satyana Institute. Upon completion, trainees may serve as co-facilitators in Satyana Institute’s Gender Reconciliation program.
  2. The training is also open to interested individuals who seek a powerful experience of intensive gender healing and reconciliation, but who may not necessarily seek to become facilitators of the work themselves.

Reconciliation & Communion
Residential Intensives in Gender Reconciliation

Our introductory workshops are designed for individual men and women who are serious about transforming gender relations in our society. Singles and couples, heterosexuals, gays, lesbians, bisexual, transgender–all sexual preferences and life style choices are welcomed and honored. We invite anyone who seriously desires to explore intensive new levels in gender healing and reconciliation. These workshops interweave a unique combination of cognitive, emotional and spiritual modalities. The specific content of each workshop is determined to a significant degree by what the participants themselves bring.
