Understanding Our Communal Responsibility for the Healthy Development of Gender and Sexuality within Society
This course is based on deepening our understanding of the esoteric development of the masculine and feminine forces within the human race and how we can best support the healthy unfolding of these forces throughout individual development.
We will explore how to perceive in the other, their individual capacities by understanding child development and the influence of the collective astral body of the community at various stages of development. This will lead to knowledge of how to work with adults to overcome imbalances and unfold greater freedom.
We will look at how an individual's inner life develops and how external conditioning can divert the capacities which brings imbalances in the astral body. These imbalances can be expressed in addictions and diversions into unhealthy behaviours towards ourselves and others.
The esoteric wisdom shows how through the harmony of the masculine and feminine forces and the development of the characteristics that stream through individual capacities, an individual has greater freedom to be creative in life and contribute to the new community forms around gender and sexuality that are essential for healthy progression.
Lisa Romero is an author of inner development books, a complementary health practitioner and an adult educator who has been offering healthcare and education enriched with anthroposophy since 1993. From 2006 the primary focus of her work has been on teaching inner development and anthroposophical meditation. Through the Inner Work Path Lisa offers lectures, courses and retreats for personal and professional development, in communities and schools worldwide. Steiner Books has published; 'The Inner Work Path’ focusing on meditation practice, 'Developing the Self’ written after years of working with Waldorf teachers to support their inner work and pedagogical understanding of child development, 'Living Inner Development’ offering an understanding of the inner experiences and results of various inner development exercises, and 'Sex Education and The Spirit' to help awaken an understanding of our communal responsibility for the healthy development of gender and sexuality within society.
For several years Lisa was the lecturer of Health & Nutrition and Male/Female studies at Sydney Rudolf Steiner College, where she continues to give lectures to the tutors on inner development. Since 1999 she has been presenting on the subject of gender, sexuality and spiritual life. She has been working with Waldorf schools as a part of their health and wellbeing curriculum, working directly with the students, teachers and parents on this theme. Lisa has contributed to and is an adviser on Health and Personal Development for the Australian Steiner Curriculum Framework. She has developed training courses, and facilitates professional development on this subject for teachers and health professionals.
Lisa designed and facilitated EduCareDo 'Towards Health and Healing' which has offered 8 year-long courses focused on working with therapists from all modalities, as well as Waldorf teachers, toward cultivating the depth of anthroposophical insight through practical applications of therapeutic and pedagogical methods.
Lisa's capacity to deliver esoteric wisdom with insight and understanding allows her to meet the diverse needs of a range of communities and professions. Essentially, her work springs from the inner work, meditation and exercises, together with a dedication to the path of unfolding consciousness.
