The director of Sumedha Centre was invited to conduct three workshops in the Philippines by the Salesians of the Southern Philippine Province.

These workshops were held at the Don Bosco Retreat Centre in Cebu City. It is a beautiful location set on hill top from where you can see the ocean in the distance.

The  first two one-day workshops were meant for perpetually professed religious, both men and women.

The third workshop  (two-days) was for the Heads of the Salesian institutions in the southern Philippines and for members of the Formation Commission of both the Salesian Provinces in the Philippines, North and South.

The topics covered during the workshops included: Psychosexual Integration and Human Maturity, Some Problematic Sexual Behaviours; Sexual Boundary Violations; Celibate Maturity; and Psychosexual Integration and Spirituality.

The Workshops were based on the two-volume book "Psychosexual Integration and Celibate Maturity" published last year, of which Jose Parappully is the primacy editor.

The workshops were very much appreciated by the participants. A general observation expressed was these were "very enlightening and useful."
