Death Throes of Patriarchy w/guest Clay Boykin

Death Throes of Patriarchy w/guest Clay Boykin


This may be one of the most important conversations we can have when discussing patriarchy. Does “patriarchy” imply men? Are men wounded by the patriarchy soaked into our cultures? Are women contributing to the patriarchal society? This loaded conversation will be held in a safe and sacred manner, between friends, while inviting all voices to be heard. We will be conducting breakout sessions as well to further your experience.

Sande Hart – Mother, Daughter, Wife, Sister and Aunt, and grandmother. – I serve as Founding Director of the Charter for Compassion Women and Girls sector, Founder and President of the women’s interfaith organization S.A.R.A.H., Past Chair of the United Religions Initiative for North America, and co-Founder of Alchemy Productions. – A certified Compassionate Integrity Trainer, I am passionate about leading people to a new understanding of who they are through the lens of compassion and compassionate action, and the role they contribute to the world around them. With a strong emphasis on personal awareness and self advocacy, I developed the 18th Sustainable Development goal with the intention and expectation that  we will wake up to our personal responsibilities to be stewards of our planet and those we share it with. – With a strong commitment to elevating women and girls by providing dialogue and circle experience, my workshops and productions provide opportunities for weaving relationships, and being in service to the divine feminine that is rising strong in our world right now. – I speak and conduct workshops on a variety of topics relating to community building, women and girls, and kids activism through service. – Paying attention to patterns in community and community building, it became clear that, with some thoughtful adjustments that seem to be easily missed, and some safeguards in how leadership teams work together, we could accelerate and leverage the highest vision and success of any given group.

Her capacity for clearing her own internalized patriarchy and fierce listening are the magic she brings to every setting. The author of four books, Patricia has shared her wisdom through writing. Her first, Mining for Diamonds shows how people can use adversity to create resiliency. What happens When Women Wake Up? is a roadmap for clearing internalized patriarchy. Her third book, Sacred Marching Orders, describes the new energy of the solar feminine. Marianne Williamson’s endorsement reads: “Women owning our power and using it collaboratively is what our planet desperately needs. Sacred Marching Orders is a call to women to channel our passion into the healing of the world.”

Online training program beginning September 12th: Becoming Whole Together

Gender Equity and Reconciliation is a burgeoning new field of transformational healing and reconciliation between women and men.  D.H. Lawrence once remarked that “The future of humanity will be decided not by relations between nations, but by relations between women and men.”  Gender equity and reconciliation recognizes the profound wound in the human family constellated around cultural conditioning relating to gender, sexuality, and relational intimacy. The ‘gender wound’ is manifest in myriad forms in virtually every society across the planet.

Martin Luther King, Jr. emphasized that societal transformation does not take place by keeping injustice and corruption hidden, but only by bringing them into the light and confronting them with the power of love.  This is the purpose and method of gender equity and reconciliation. Both women and men are afflicted by gender injustice, and each needs the other for a true and complete healing.  Domestic violence is the leading cause of death for women aged 15 to 44 worldwide.  Men have higher death rates than women for all 15 leading causes of death.  The premise of gender equity and reconciliation is that women and men can and must work together to jointly transform these tragic conditions.  Gender reconciliation embraces all sexual orientations, including heterosexual, gay, lesbian, bisexual.

Gender Equity and Reconciliation International has facilitated workshops and training programs for more than 2,000 men and women in seven countries to date.  Our experience demonstrates that earnest women and men are capable of extraordinary levels of healing and reconciliation, and thereby fostering new levels of mutual trust, respect, communication, and joyful partnership. Independent monitoring and evaluation of our programs conducted by Phaphama Initiatives in South Africa concluded that Gender Equity and Reconciliation is a powerful tool for addressing the causes of HIV/AIDS (rather than just treating symptoms), and that Gender Equity and Reconciliation has the potential to prevent communities from self-destructing because of gender-based violence and AIDS.

Gender Equity and Reconciliation builds upon yet goes well beyond the work of the women’s and men’s movements—both of which are crucial social movements in their own right that have made essential contributions.  Gender equity and reconciliation takes another bold step—or leap!—to bring women and men together to begin an unprecedented collaborative work of facing the disastrous reality of gender injustice in its many forms, and embarking upon the integral work of mutual transformation to create a new, unprecedented harmony between the sexes.  Working through the challenges of gender disharmony with integrity, compassion, and non-judgment, men and women discover a liberating awakening and new spiritual communion.

About Me

About Me

Clay Boykin’s work in the area of male spiritual development is his calling. He has dedicated his next twenty years to making the world a better place by empowering men to cultivate and integrate their divine male and divine female essences within. Clay is a former United States Marine Corps officer from a small Texas town. After 38 years in the corporate world Clay’s life took a radical turn at age 53 when chest pains led to a mystical experience. Other life challenges ensued and several years later Clay emerged from his dark night of the soul a spirit-centered man.

Clay is passionate about servant leadership and founded the Men’s Fellowship Network: Circles of Men Project in 2012. He has facilitated hundreds of weekly circles and helped thousands of men find their center and grow along their life journey.

Clay  is In Search of the New Compassionate Male. Since his book: Circles of Men: A counter-intuitive Approach to Creating Men’s Groups, came out in 2018, Clay has been on a quest to connect with men and women all over the world in the belief that a New Compassionate Male is emerging as the New Archetype. His travels have taken him across the U.S. and into Africa. 

Clay is presently interviewing men and women on his PODCAST: In Search of the New Compassionate Male, and is always looking for people with a perspective on the topic of men and compassion. As well, Clay collaborates with Charter for Compassion and Gender Equity and Reconciliation International in the area of deep healing between women and men.

Clay works with both men and women by integrating practical tools in a counter-intuitive way with their spiritual foundation. To learn more about Clay and his mentoring work go to: Going Deeper
