The Whole Story:
Overview & Reorientation toward The Gender Wheel

LEVEL 0: INTRODUCTION
Welcome to the Gender Wheel! Here we begin the journey with an overview and a reorientation toward truth outside of western patriarchy and begin establishing a holistic, nature-based understanding of gender.
Objectives
INTRO/REORIENTATION takes a brief look at what has been suppressed in Western patriarchal culture and how it’s impacted our sense of context and thinking regarding gender. The training includes actions to explore binary thinking, expose and interrupt assumptions and stereotypes, and create more inclusive perspectives and practices.
