About this Video Series
Decolonizing Gender with Nature highlights why a fundamental shift in how we think and talk about gender is critical for us to move forward into a new world that supports, celebrates, and values everyone.
The on demand series tells the BIG story about the roots of gender and body oppression and how this oppression continues to be upheld even in our most progressive understandings of gender.
Through 6 main videos and 10 supplemental videos, the series breaks down the controls that have been piled on top of nature, and humans, and how these controls reinforce binary thinking and implicit bias.
Knowing the BIG story helps us see through the false binary to cultivate a new planetary mindset in alignment with nature. It’s time to heal our relationship with the earth and ourselves.
"When we understand Nature's timeless patterns,
we know gender and body diversity are valuable and necessary."
What makes this Series different?
This Gender Wheel video series connects with nature, and addresses the impact of systemic gender oppression, providing an authentically supportive framework for education, care-giving, and healing settings.
"When we understand the full dynamics of gender oppression,
we know why it continues to play out AND how to interrupt it."
The 6 main sections are part of a larger narrative and each lays a foundation for the next. Watching the series builds a new understanding piece by piece, while weaving everything together.
Common questions & comments assembled from our facilitated trainings, ranging in topics from religion, teachers navigating parents, dealing with pushback, gender talks in the Latinx community, and more.
Additional videos dive deeper into Nature, Indigenous History, and US History from a nature-based gender perspective with links to further learning.
