Webinar Details

How can expanding our understanding of gender support our work towards collective healing and liberation? What are some ways that Somatic Sex Education can help transform the harmful effects of historical, social and culturally gendered trauma? Join us for a webinar and discussion with Alex Iantaffi, author of Gender Trauma – Healing Cultural, Social and Historical Trauma. Alex brings a passion for training providers, healing justice and community-based scholarship to all of their work. Using clinical vignettes and reflexive somatic exercises, they will help us make connections between the rigidity of the gender binary and ongoing settler colonial systems. We will have an opportunity to highlight how practices from SSE can help us to decolonize our individual and collective bodies. Access a free zine “How to Understand Your Gender” here. resources — alex iantaffi
