Gender and Sexuality in the Light of Waldorf Education

Gender and Sexuality in the Light of Waldorf Education

Saturday May 18, 2019  9am-3pm

Instructor: Lisa Romero from Developing the Self

Tuition $99

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.
