Visions of Laila

Visions of Laila: Encountering the Feminine in the Female Body
In this course we will take an interdisciplinary and experiential approach to understanding the female body, focusing specifically on the female organ systems through the lens of women’s health, physical and energy medicine, psychology, spirituality and art. Using Tami Kent’s Wild Feminine as a primary text as well as other readings, presentations, meditative exercises and art-making, we will explore questions of how gender is embodied; the beliefs and constructs we hold about femininity; how we might counter voices of shame, violence and guilt through reclaiming ground in the body; and the links between creative potential and sexuality. This course counts as elective credit towards the GSFS major.
