Inner Work Path offers ways of engaging with the esoteric studies of anthroposophy as outlined by Rudolf Steiner. At the foundation of this schooling, which enlivens both ancient and modern practices, is the understanding of the evolution of consciousness.  Focus is placed on strengthening the human soul to fulfil the task of freedom and love to its highest degree.

New Year-long Course

Inner Development for World Development

A new course developed by Lisa Romero for EduCareDo has been launched in the past few months. This experiential course outlines the various ways of working with inner development, along with various indications towards engaging with certain exercises and meditations over the twelve months of the course. Participants can begin any time and work at their own pace. Every month you will receive a new lesson including content towards understanding the inner development path and how to utilise the various methods of self-assessment to gauge for yourself where you are in this work and what you may need. There will be practical exercises suggested each month, so you can have direct experience as well as the opportunity to reflect on how the content resounds for you. This will help to deepen your individual insight into the inner schooling with which it would be most useful for you to engage. It will help you to orientate towards putting the time, energy, and attention you have in the most fruitful direction.

We can do nothing more helpful for the world's further evolution than to evolve ourselves. This is something that, in fact, we must do. And we have no doubt whatsoever that we must, the moment we perceive the truth about our own nature, and its relationship with the wider world.

Reflections on the Current World Crisis - Inner Development for World Development

Sarah Hearn interviews Lisa Romero in May during the initial COVID-19 outbreak across the world.

by Lisa Romero

Human evolution has changed the exterior world we live in, but since the industrial revolution the exterior world has had an enormous impact on the inner world of those under the influence of industrialization. We now have an industrialized interiority that has new ways of thinking, feeling, and acting toward ourselves and others. This new inner life is impacting the health and wellbeing of so many individuals that new ways of self-development are being explored.

To recognize the impact of our industrialised interiority is to begin to understand the ways in which people are trying to move forward toward healing. Before embarking on the use of “plant medicine” to bring about inner change, we need to know what in us is seeking to be healed.

A Bridge to Spirit is a way of understanding where we are in our inner world and the various pathways being utilised to progress toward an enriched inner life that is not caged, rule, and blunted by the internalized effects of our outer existence. It speaks of the new bridge to the spiritual life needed to heal the disconnect created by a spirit-devoid external life that is in turn changing our interiority.

The heart is the internal bridge in the human body. It is the bridge in our relationships from one human being to another. And it is also our eternal bridge between the spirit and the world. Our individual human heart is the mystery centre through which we participate in the collective progress of humanity. Strengthening the heart’s activity on all levels supports the bridge in body, soul and spirit. In turn, it supports the healing of the un-bridged experiences induced by substance use. The strengthening of the heart restores balance and harmony and supports the circulation of the life-giving gifts of the heart.”
