Working Holistically with Gender and Sexuality

A webinar recorded by the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) and Anthroposophic Society of America (ASA) in May 2019

A healthy relationship to gender and sexuality supports our wellbeing, both as individuals and as a community. The form that this education gives can bring to children and adolescents not only tools to combat the inner disturbances and imbalances created by social media and exposure to pornography – as the most prevalent sources of implicit sex-education 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.

Providing a healthy and socially constructive sex education is the responsibility not only of the primary caregivers, parents, and teachers, but also of the individuals in the wider community, who likewise 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 expression of gender and sexuality.
