In this episode, we dive deep into one of the most ancient wounds of humanity with Cynthia Brix, the co-founder of Gender Equity and Reconciliation International.

Cynthia is an ordained interfaith minister with a background in women’s issues and racial diversity. She has co-organized seven international conferences on interspirituality and two on women’s spiritual leadership across diverse religious and indigenous traditions. Cynthia also holds an honorary doctorate from the California Institute of Integral Studies, and MA in wellness and gerontology, and she is certified in Grof Breathwork. 

Cynthia is the co-author of a few books, one of which we talk a bit about today called, Gender Equity & Reconciliation: Thirty Years of Healing the Most Ancient Wound in the Human Family

The Gender Equity and Reconciliation International or GERI process was inspired by the principles of Truth and Reconciliation developed by Archbishop Desmond Tutu in South Africa. It’s a process that has been developed and used for over three decades for thousands of people across six continents. The process aims to create safe forums to empower the unraveling of gender and sexual conditioning and initiate a whole new culture of gender relations and community.

The actor and author of Man Enough, Justin Baldoni, says

“Gender equity is the one certain step to heal humanity… this book and the GERI program illuminate a path to do just that.”

Cynthia Brix shares her stories and helps us understand more about how we can heal the ancient wound of gender inequity.
