Understanding Community Responsibility Towards Gender and Sexuality
13 September, 2018 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
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.
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.
The responsibility of a healthy and socially constructive sex education belongs to the primary caregivers, parents, teachers as well as individuals in the wider community, because we all 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.
