Social Understanding Gender and Sexuality

September 10,
6pm - 7:30pm

The evening is offered to parents in advance of meeting with the students. We look at the content that will be brought to Class 5, 6 & 7 bridging it to the pictures of human development on which the Steiner/Waldorf Curriculum is based. It helps to recognise 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. We address the main issues confronting child health and wellbeing in current times, with examples of how we can counter the unbalancing effects, and the social conditioning around gender that contributes to the struggles within out changing social structures.

Wednesday September 11
11am - 12:30pm
Class 6 & 7

Thursday September 12
11am - 12 noon

Class 5

The program content for children starts the year the child turns 11 years old, an age when the growth in the child’s body and soul develops towards puberty. The change of teeth, puberty, social understanding and cultural conditioning around gender stereotyping are the themes of the discussion. In Class 7 this extends towards the theme of attraction. Therefore Class 7 will have an extended time without the Class 6. The themes are typically built upon by an annual visit from facilitators which is extended and supported by the school staff with professional development courses, mentoring and online resources to connect it to main lessons.

Gender and Sexuality in the Light of Waldorf Education

How can communities work together over time to support the harmonious development between the child’s evolving body and his or her inner experiences to build the foundation for healthy adult sexuality and gender? What is the responsibility and the impact of the community in fostering a sense of well being in the growing child in these important aspects of life? This workshop will help us to recognize the depth and progressive understanding Waldorf education brings to these topics. Children pass through different stages of consciousness as they grow. We will consider how and when to work with children in regards to sexuality and gender throughout the developmental stages of early childhood through adolescence. The emphasis will be on the the child from birth to seven.

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

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.
