Gender Equity & Reconciliation International (GERI) Courses
Gender Equity and Reconciliation International (GERI) Courses and Professional Facilitator Training
Gender Equity and Reconciliation International (GERI) organizes programs for transformational healing and reconciliation between women, men, and people of all genders and sexual orientations. Gender equity and reconciliation recognizes the profound wound in the human family constellated around cultural conditioning relating to gender, sexuality, and relational intimacy.
We (Esther & William) are Facilitators and Trainers of Gender Equity and Reconciliation International (GERI) as well as coordinators for the work in Australia. Transforming gender injustice into beloved community is a passion and a deep privilege. We would love to see more facilitators trained to offer these courses in Australia.
The majority of programs are offered in online formats. These range from a 1-hour Introduction to GERI, to our six-session online course, and our more extensive Online GERI Facilitator Training.
We invite you to find out more and join us in this work by applying for an ONLINE course or training at the GERI website, and signing up to receive newsletters about upcoming programs.
If you are interested in this work in person in our Australian context and wish to be a participant, or to train as a facilitator please contact us.
To book for the upcoming 3 day GERI Introductory Workshop, held by William and Esther, in person, in Brisbane, QLD. Please Register Now.
Deep truth-telling and earnest dialogue across the gender divisions in the human family is profoundly transformative - and urgently needed everywhere, yet exists almost nowhere today.
It occurs in this work. Come and join us.

Anatomy of Silence
As a result of the Me-Too Movement, this book gives voice to twenty-six stories about what it means to stay silent, to be silenced, and to break the silence that surrounds sexual violence. One of the stories is written by Esther and shares the power of the Gender Equity and Reconciliation process.

Group Supervision - Online & In Person
Online & In Person Options
We (both Esther and William) offer counsellors, therapists, clergy, chaplains and other people helpers the opportunity to participate in Group Supervision.
Group supervision is facilitator-led via a formal, prearranged process that is agreed by the supervisor and supervisees. The makeup of the group depends on the goals of the supervision.
Group supervision is a complement to, rather than substitute for, one-to- one supervision, though it may reduce the frequency with which one-to-one supervision is needed.
Group supervision is offered both online and in person.
If you are at all interested in finding out about the opportunity to join a group, or you would like to form a group and you are looking for a supervisor, please contact us.
Moving Your Creation Sessions
Facilitated by Esther
Energise & Rejuvenate your Body, Mind, Spirit
Many of us have been too scared to let ourselves open up, move, breath, feel, stretch and express who we are inside.
And yet, and yet and yet... we keep touching the parts of us that long to let our bodies move and seek the freedom of full self-expression.
These sessions are designed to gently and boldly invite you into connection with yourself, through movement and breath work.
You are welcome whatever your body shape, level of flexibility & age (over 18).
It is your choice to move as much or as little as you want. If you have injuries, pain or feel self-conscious you are invited to work within your own limits and adapt movements to suit your own body (or just don’t do that particular movement). The purpose is to move towards pleasure not pain.
The sessions are based on principles of Core Energetics, a form of Body Psychotherapy and can be highly supportive for those who are engaged in their own therapeutic process.
Many of us store emotions and trauma in the musculature of our bodies which need to be softened and stretched in order to allow us to release them and heal.
These sessions are designed to lead you through a 4 step process.
1. Charge your body using breath & movement
2. Invite self expression
3. Discharge held in muscular tensions
4. Finish with letting go into rest
As your facilitator I am passionate about
full self-expression and living life
with freedom and enthusiasm.
Freedom is being you

Over the years, I have worked with and been part of many professional and personal development groups. Esther and William's facilitation showed an exemplary level of empathy, compassion and honesty creating a safe space for me to be vulnerable and open my heart. The result has been a deeper understanding of myself and others.
