Social Understanding, Gender and Sexuality in Agriculture
17 November, 2018 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Biodynamic Conference of North America
The social understanding of gender and sexuality is a task for our times. Rudolf Steiner stated that our gender and sexuality are where the human being is most un-free. Our farms, educational opportunities, social and business enterprises, and communities at large are calling for renewed relationships where the capacities of each individual are honored and supported to develop no matter their gender, sexuality, race, culture, or religion. We will explore how the qualities of gender and sexuality live in us and ways to develop ourselves towards freedom from their bounds. Creating a healthy individual inner relationship fosters understanding and care in our communities and contributes to the collective consciousness. Working to overcome our own biases and imbalances will prepare us to awaken more readily to the spiritual wisdom that can bring health and harmony into the evolving reality of gender and sexuality. The insights shared in this workshop will help anyone interested in understanding the various forms of human relationship and how we might work together to build a healthier community life on our farms and beyond.
