Individuals coming together to support healthy physical, soul and spiritual evolution

Through the foundations seeded by Inner Work Path, Developing the Self Developing the World has emerged as a growing social form, which delivers community education. Individuals are encouraged to contribute and participate freely and responsibly in a way that benefits the greater good. It is based on the three-fold social order that Rudolf Steiner introduced as a progressive way to work in one's task in the world. Of importance is the striving to recognise an individual without making distinctions or stereotyping based on outer characteristics, social standing, race, sex, gender, religion or culture.


There is currently a group of people working in the fields of education, health and the arts who direct and administer the organisation. Click here for the administrator's profiles. They are joined by a wider circle of people including practitioners, social workers, teachers, craftspeople, artistic directors and farmers who help to deliver activities and services. Developing the Self Developing the World members have been working collegially in their fields for many years and delivering gender and sexuality professional development and school programs since 2009.


One of the first tasks of Developing the Self Developing the World is to extend the existing Gender and Sexuality Program that has been delivered by Lisa Romero and James Deefholts. There are also two concurrent initiatives; Conscious Parenting Courses and the Y Project.


"Through taking hold of all that lives in us we participate consciously in the transformation of our particular personal self that is often closed to higher insights, towards a greater possibility of experiencing a living, dynamic spiritual life that awakens our being and serves the progression of the world we live in."              Lisa Romero - 'Developing the Self'
