Understanding Gender and Sexuality through spiritual insight in the light of Waldorf Education
LISA ROMERO is an author of anthroposophical inner development books, a complementary health practitioner and adult educator who has been delivering healthcare and education enriched with anthroposophy for 20 years. From 2006 the primary focus of her work has been on teaching inner development and anthroposophical meditation. Steiner Books has published 4 books. ‘The Inner Work Path’ which focuses 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’ which offers an understanding of the inner experiences and of the results of various exercises, and ‘Growing Up Male and Female’ (2017), about understanding gender and sexuality through spiritual insight in the light of Waldorf Education.
Lisa designed and facilitated the Educaredo Towards Health and Healing course based on Anthroposophy. This acclaimed training ran 8 yearlong courses, working with therapists from all modalities as well as Waldorf teachers to bring the practical application of therapeutic and pedagogical methods of Anthroposophy to the proper constitutional assessment /diagnosis.
Lisa has for several years been the lecturer for health and nutrition and male/female studies at Parsifal College in Sydney , Australia , which offers Anthroposophical orientation courses and teacher training. She also mentors both teachers and parents in schools throughout Australia in numerous topics concerning health and healing, as well as child and adult development. As a leading lecturer in these fields, she has been asked to support the Japanese trainings for teachers and health practitioners over the last three years and is also teaching ‘The Prescriber’s Course’, which is training Anthroposophical homeopathic and naturopathic practitioners. The variety and quality of her lectures and knowledge allows her to meet many communities from the point of view of their needs, often suggesting they choose the topic to be explored. However, essentially Lisa’s work springs from her dedication to the path of unfolding consciousness, and participants are given a depth of insight that brings meaning to ‘who we are and why are we here,’ revealing the mysteries of health and illness, whilst giving guidance for true preventative health care.
