Gender, Society, and the Binary: a two part event
Do you have questions about how society impacts how we develop gender identity? What about gender stereotypes? Who even decided that there are just “men” and “women” anyway? This two-part event series will go in-depth about these topics and more!
You may sign up for one or both events, whatever is most comfortable for your current background knowledge level. We have provided several price options for increased accessibility. Every pricing option gets you access to the same event and material.
Session 1: Wednesday, April 7th 8:00 – 9:30pm ESt
Session 1 covers topics such as vocabulary, how gender stereotype reinforcement impacts children, and how language develops to encompass different identities (as well as more). This event could be described as an introductory session to all of these topics.
session 2: Wednesday, April 14th 8:00 – 9:30pm ESt
Session 2 is co-hosted by my brilliant friend Matisse DuPont, and will be more focused on Gender Theory as well as practical application for everyday life. Topics included will be about how colonization impacted the gender binary we have today, how society operates within the binary, and how gender neutral schooling isn’t as new of an idea as naysayers would have you believe.

She is committed to creating and holding safe spaces for people to connect, heal, learn, and build resilience and equity in a world that often takes relentless hold of our bodies, minds, and hearts. Crystal supports organizations, individuals and groups through professional development workshops, trainings, yoga classes and lovingly curated yoga and wellness retreats internationally. Her programs feature embodied healing modalities including: yoga, mindfulness, breath work, restorative yoga and practices, discussion and reflection, ritual, and emphasize the importance of self-care and sustainability as the gateway to social justice and community healing in the world. Crystal’s aim is to make yoga and mindfulness inclusive and adaptive, trauma-informed and accessible for all. She is registered with Yoga Alliance as an ERYT500 and RCYT.
This event is for children 5-9 and their caregivers! The event will be about 30 minutes, and adults can experience how to support kids who are the reading age of the deck to do the practices independently. Kids will also get to follow along and enjoy the practices at the outset of the event if we start with those. This will be followed up by a chat with Crystal and answer any questions folks may have!
