Spirit-led Community: Healing the Impact of Technology

  • Portland Waldorf School 2300 Southeast Harrison Street Milwaukie, OR, 97222 United States (map)

A lecture by Lisa Romero

With our outer lives increasingly permeated by technology, we now face the effects that technology brings to our inner lives, as well as its artificial influence on the development of our thinking, feeling, and willing. Technology is forming the future of our communities and extending its pervasive influence into our inner capacities as community members.  Discovering how unfree we actually are has always been one of the necessary steps in awakening the inner development path. The foundations of our inner freedom, as well as our inner unfreedom, are greatly influenced during the years of child development. Our patterns of thinking, feeling, and willing are all influenced directly by the community in which we grow up.

“We must be prepared, as a collective humanity, with capacities and inner strengths enabling us to freely choose the form of community life that we determine to be needed for the future of humanity. We need to establish communities that are dedicated to human freedom―communities in which the health of the community, the education of the child, and social life are imbued with impulses supportive of the cultivation of human freedom.” ―Lisa Romero

 Lisa will introduce spiritually healthy guidelines for lessoning the negative influence of technology on the inner life. Through providing an understanding of the foundations of inner health laid in childhood as well as the path of inner development that can be consciously engaged with as adults, a way can be shown for how new community life can lead us into a future that maintains and supports the evolving human spirit.
