This healing workshop presents a safe, brave space to address issues of sex/gender diversity, and promote awareness of how we are affected by the interconnectedness of various forms of oppression, racism, misogyny, heterosexism, etc., for those who identify as women and men. Through the communication channels of free movement, active listening, and deep sharing of life experiences, group members will come together to achieve mutual understanding and clarity. The workshop is limited to 20 participants (10 of each gender).


"The container created by Margaux and Ukumbwa allowed a space for deep listening and learning from each other. By participating in Pathways, I sensed an incredible energy where we each as individuals can begin to change and welcome in new possibilities." - C. Brizzi
