Gender, Sacred Sexuality, and Healing
School of Consciousness and Transformation PARW 6075 2.00
How does the sacred inform our sexual practice, gender identity, and physical embodiment? Based on the lives and experiences of diverse populations, this course offers a multicultural exploration of some of the various strategies for individual and community healing employed by contemporary women and other oppressed genders in their search for liberation and wholeness. We will use memoirs, theoretical essays, personal narratives, films, and new findings from medical research to explore a variety of sexual and gender identities, spiritual and transcendent sexual experiences, and practical links between the body, sexuality, healing and spirituality.
