Sex Education and The Spirit

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

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-education 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.

LISA ROMERO is an author of inner development books, a complementary health practitioner and an adult educator who has been offering healthcare and education enriched with anthroposophy since 1993. From 2006 the primary focus of her work has been on teaching inner development and anthroposophical meditation. Through the Inner Work Path Lisa offers lectures, courses and retreats for personal and professional development, in communities and schools worldwide. Steiner Books has published; ‘The Inner Work Path’focusing on meditation practice, ‘Developing the Self’ written after years of working with Waldorf teachers to support their inner work and pedagogical understanding of child development, ‘Living Inner Development’ offering an understanding of the inner experiences and results of various inner development exercises, and ‘Sex Education and The Spirit’ to help awaken an understanding of our communal responsibility for the healthy development of gender and sexuality within society.

Lisa’s capacity to deliver esoteric wisdom with insight and understanding allows her to meet the diverse needs of a range of communities and professions. Essentially, her work springs from the inner work, meditation and exercises, together with a dedication to the path of unfolding consciousness.

Bush dance 2017

I go to the bush dance every year. When the music starts it just carries you away and then there’s the games and line dances! In the breaks there’s cheap food that the parents make and the country vibes are great, I love the bush dance.

A fun, crazy dance with friends. It’s all dancing, hanging out, fun, having a good time and meeting new people. It’s a great event. Maybe we will see you there next year.
Eva Cl 6
A crazy wonderful experience of dancing, music and fund. The bush dance is enjoyable for any and every age group. Every minute of this special night is filled with different activities and heaps of dancing. There is also a large variety of different, yummy foods (savoury and sweet). I highly recommend this amazing event.

Northern New South Wales School Netball Cup

Our students excelled during this event with four of our teams qualifying to progress to the next round. One of our year 6 teams blitzed the field progressing without losing a match. As did our year 9 Boys team. “The Black Oysters”, who came in as strong favourites after winning last years State Championships. Our year 9 girls “ The Black Pearls”, held their own losing only one match for the day to finish on top of the ladder. Our year 7 and 8 Boys team were short a few players but managed to impress the organisers so much with their skill and ability to move the ball around that they were given a wild card entry into the next round.
The Northern NSW Schools Cup was held over two days at the Mullumbimby netball courts on Tuesday for the Primary School and Wednesday for the High School. There were over 300 students from various schools in the region competing at this event.

Our students showed great tenacity competing against some very strong teams to hold their own in all divisions. For many students this event was an introduction to the sport of netball and for others it was an extension of the sport they play every Saturday afternoon. All the students enjoyed the day and I would like to thank their coaches and assistants, who made the day such a success. Ryan Hamilton, Subhi Awad, Belle McPhee, Lizzie Gavahan, the year 9 assistants that helped manage coach and umpire the primary students, Monica Brandolini,, Ella Whitaker, Jett Grimster, Phoebe Campbell, Bimini Plesser, and Taj Birrell.

Last years State Champions “The Black Oysters” receiving a bit of rock star status from some of the other teams at the Schools Cup Gala Day at Mullumbimby netball courts.
