Our Whole Lives (OWL)
Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a comprehensive, evidence-based sexuality class that UUs helped develop to teach how to value our sacred bodies and our sexuality throughout the lifespan. From the UUA website:
While Our Whole Lives is secular, it is not value-free. The program gives clear messages about the following key sexuality issues:
- self worth
- sexual health
- justice and inclusivity
Our Whole Lives recognizes and respects the diversity of participants with respect to biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and disability status. The activities and language used throughout the program have been carefully chosen to be as inclusive as possible of this human diversity.
