[Past Event] No Voice Missing: Understanding gender transition (pt2)
9:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT
23 Clerkenwell Close
London, EC1R 0AA
Gender transitioning is currently viewed through the lens of medical assessments and physical changes. But the question we think is worth exploring is – when the body transitions, what happens to the soul? Does it automatically follow or does it “have its own ideas”?
Plato considered the soul to have 3 parts: logos (mind), thymos (emotion) and eros (desire). This workshop will explore if and how gender transitioning may affect these integral parts, and help discover and create narratives allowing us to explore this aspect of gender transitions.
All are welcome to attend this event, whether you came to part one in June or not. It is for anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of gender and gender transition.
