Spirit-led Community: Healing the Impact of Technology

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.

Social Understanding, Gender, & Sexuality in the Light of Waldorf Education

  • Cedarwood Waldorf School (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A CONFERENCE OPEN TO EVERYONE

with Lisa Romero and colleagues

$195.00/$175.00 earlybird/$155.00 earlybird for sponsors & students (before 8-31-19) Some workstudy available


This workshop addresses gender differences and similarities that both limit or free us, and the contribution and struggles of the changing social structures around gender and sexuality affecting us all. It helps bring understanding of how to support the child/adolescent in these times, and addresses questions and challenges that adults experience. We explore the anthroposophic understanding of being more than male and female, how to express evolving pictures of gender and sexuality to students in primary and secondary school, and the common struggles experienced during childhood, adolescence and into adulthood. Supporting this aspect of health and wellbeing of each child’s relationship to gender and sexuality results in greater resilience and confidence in their growing relationship to the wider community.

Includes the public lecture: “GENDER & SEXUALITY IN THE DEVELOPING CHILD” (7-9PM @ Cedarwood) which is part of the conference but open to everyone ($15.00)
