Being Human and Sexual: An Evolving Understanding workshop

This Summer Institute workshop provides vocation directors and those in leadership clarity to adequately assess a candidate’s ability to live celibacy within vowed communal life. Beginning with fundamental understandings that sexuality is integral to being human, centered in relationship and presence, participants will explore the following: well-being, an integrated understanding of sexuality, including sexual expression, the centrality of relationships and intimacy, the necessity of personal boundaries, and the impact of one's past, especially any experience of trauma, on one's ability to relate, be emotionally aware and expressive, and live a healthy sexual and celibate life. This workshop offers an opportunity to explore these fundamentals and an emerging understanding of some aspects of sexual diversity.
