What does it mean to be transformed by this work?
Read below for one man’s beautiful personal reflection written after a recentÂ Gender Equity
and Reconciliation workshop:
“I’d like to thank you again for the skill, care, warmth and delicacy with whichÂ the workshop was facilitated.Â
The Gender Equity and Reconciliation workshop gave me many tools and a good head
space to approach reconciling with my partner, for which I am so, so grateful. I think we’re in a much stronger and very exciting stage in our relationship now.Â I’ve been sharing the [gender] reconciliation cycle far and wide!
I’ve also been really grateful that I feel I can access so much more empathy forÂ men and for the suffering and issues specific to our experiences of masculinity.Â This is good for my own healing and self-reflection, no doubt(!), but has also beenÂ so important for starting my work as a volunteer running workshops for boys. I’veÂ been really struck by the insight that men’s suffering and women’s suffering areÂ linked and that you can work for a better gendered society on both fronts. I’llÂ continue to aspire towards the same level of facilitation I was privileged to experience!”
