Through the Inner Work Path in the light of anthropsophy

Developing the Self_ Cover

By Lisa Romero, Published by Steiner Books, 2015

 

Individual effort toward development of the higher self is essential for genuine progress on the inner work path. The clear insights and exercises outlined in this book reveal the meaning and necessity of this essential striving in the present consciousness soul age, contributing toward enlivening both our inner and outer work at the same time. The path of developing the self and our work in the world are not separated, but united through the practices and their results.

 

"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."

Sex Education and The Spirit

Understanding Our Communal Responsibility for the Healthy Development of Gender and Sexuality within Society

Sex Education and the Spirit

By Lisa Romero, Published February 2017, Steiner Books

 

A healthy relationship to gender and sexuality supports our wellbeing, both as individuals and as a community. The form of sex education that we bring to children and adolescents not only needs to combat the inner disturbances and imbalances created by social media and exposure to pornography - as the most prevalent sources of implicit sex-eduction in our time - but it also needs to serve them in cultivating useful capacities with which to meet the growing societal changes around this fundamental aspect of being human.

Providing a healthy and socially constructive sex education is the responsibility not only of the primary caregivers, parents, and teachers, but also of the individuals in the wider community, who likewise contribute to the collective consciousness.

Working to overcome our own biases and imbalances will prepare us to more readily awaken to the spiritual wisdom that can bring health and harmony into the evolving reality of gender and sexuality.

 

"Our bodies are our gardens, to which our wills are gardeners" - Shakespeare, Othello

 

The insights shared in this book are important for everyone who is interested in understanding the various forms of human relationship, and how we might work together to bring about a healthier community life.
