Gender Reconciliation is an innovative forum that brings women and men together to jointly address gender conditioning and gender injustice in order to move toward mutual reverence and honor for one another.
Gender Reconciliation workshops and trainings create safe spaces for women and men separately and jointly, to engage in experiential, interactive exercises and dialogues to address issues rarely discussed aloud. The process frequently leads to breakthroughs in mutual understanding, forgiveness and reconciliation. Introductory workshops are offered in Cape Town and Johannesburg. Please contact Zanele Khumalo for upcoming workshops in Cape Town, and Lindiwe Tshabalala for workshops in Johannesburg.

This training is appropriate for mature professionals of all ages, sexual orientations, faith traditions, race, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.
