“Injustice and corruption can never be transformed by keeping them hidden, but only by bringing them out into the light and confronting them with the power of love.” –Martin Luther King Jr
WHY IT WORKS
The words of Martin Luther King form the premise of the Gender Reconciliation work. With compassion, love and the highest intention for healing, people who participate in the Gender Reconciliation process are able to confront deep truths and embrace the humanity in others, and in themselves. In this way, compassionate citizenship is mutually established. This requires both courage and humility: to speak one’s truth, to open to the pain of others, and to take personal and social responsibility.
No one escapes cultural and gender conditioning. Women and men are affected by gender disharmony, and each needs the other for healing and healthy relationship. By confronting and dismantling personal and cultural patterns of gender conditioning at multiple levels we can address the ways in which we all perpetuate gender injustice.
