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 and Sexuality – Professional Development June 26 - June 28

Professional Development Training for teachers, therapists, and engaged community members
with Lisa Romero and colleagues
This training will explore the contribution and struggles of the changing social structures around gender and sexuality affecting us all. It will help to bring an understanding of how to support the child/adolescent in these times and will also address some of the questions and challenges that adults experience. We will explore the anthroposophical understanding of being more than male and female and how to express the evolving pictures of gender and sexuality to students in primary and secondary school. It will also include the common struggles that are experienced during childhood, adolescence and into adulthood. Supporting this aspect of the health and wellbeing of the individual child’s relationship to gender and sexuality results in greater resilience and confidence in their growing relationship to the wider community.  Professional Development Training for teachers, therapists, and engaged community members.

Seeking Health: Exploring Questions of Gender, Sexuality, and Technology in Our Time

This weekend will focus on how to support and elicit the true nature of the individual human being from childhood to adulthood. We will explore the need for new community responsibility in providing young people with guidance and encouragement in their growing sense of self-consciousness: in essence, the need to develop modern rites of passage. We will consider questions around the role, influence, and stigma of technology, gender and sexuality, and mental health, both in our daily lives and in the long-term. Finally, we will look at how young people can be respected and encouraged by their greater communities in choosing a healthful path into adulthood.

Social Understanding, Gender & Sexuality from Birth to Puberty & Beyond

Social Understanding, Gender & Sexuality from Birth to Puberty & Beyond

This lecture helps to recognize the relevant depth and progression anthroposophy brings to this important aspect of life and the responsibility of community in raising children and working together to promote individual wellbeing.

It will cover how and when we work with children and adolescents to bring the understanding of sexuality and gender in relation to where they are in their consciousness. This brings harmony between the evolving body and inner experiences that sets the ground for healthy adult experience. The talk will cover some of the main issues confronting child health and wellbeing in current times, with examples of how we can counter the unbalancing effects. We also address how to understand 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.

Lisa Romero lives in Australia and is an author, a complementary health practitioner and an adult educator who has been offering healthcare and education enriched with anthroposophy since 1993. Since 1999 she has been presenting on the subject of gender, sexuality and spiritual life. She has been working with Waldorf Schools as part of their health and well-being 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.

Parent Lecture - Building Healthy Community Life - Towards the Cultivation of Human Freedom

  • Great Barringon Rudolf Steiner School (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Our patterns of thinking, our feelings and our will impulses are directly influenced by the community in which we grow. The foundations of both inner freedom and unfreedom are laid down through the course of childhood. With the rise of technology permeating extensively our outer lives, we are now being faced with its effects on our inner lives and its artificial influence over the development of thinking, feeling and will impulses. Technology is forming our community’s future and in doing so extending its persuasive influence into the inner capacities of its members.

We can choose to be ready as individuals, as parents, and as a collective community, with capacities—with the necessary inner strengths—to freely choose the way of life we determine to be supportive of the progression of humanity. We need to establish communities that are dedicated to human freedom; communities in which community health, child development and education, and social life are imbued with impulses supportive of the cultivation of individual freedom.

Drugs, Technology, and the Evolving Consciousness

A talk by Lisa Romero hosted by Fred Talks. Space is limited. If you are interested in attending this event, please email danmackenzy@gmail.com to RSVP and for location details.

The increasingly widespread sacramental use of ayuhuasca, psilocybin and peyote, the legalization of cannabis, and LSD micro-dosing experiments have ushered in a psychedelic renaissance of sorts. Lisa will shed light on how these substances affect the subtle bodies of the human being, and will also explore how we can manage the growing challenge of technology, which enhances our lives but can also pose a threat to our spiritual evolution. Q&A and a few songs by Living Roots will round out this inspiring event.
