Gender and sexual identity is the most important foundation of who we are. Labels are not important but self-identity is critical to self-empowerment and understanding. This presentation is a broad perspective of gender and sexual identity that is most relevant in the 21st century. All aspects of gender and sexual identity are covered including not only the biological, sociological, and psychological creation of identity, but also the spiritual perspective that is seldom explored in mainstream gender and sexuality studies. In addition, the speaker will illustrate how our identities are not fixed points but lay along ever-shifting continuums.
Additional topics include: how the Energy Body and Physical Body affect gender and sexual identity; gender and sexual identity models; changing gender and sexual identity during one lifetime or across multiple lifetimes; Two Spirit and 3rd Gender cultures; formulas for self-identity and self-empowerment; and personal anecdotes from the speaker’s life as a Four Spirit. Questions and open discussion is encouraged during this presentation. A reference handout including a discount coupon for a session will be available for each participant.
