Both professionals and lay enthusiasts are invited to become acquainted with the styles of eurythmic movement that characterize successive stages of human consciousness. Stepping out of our own frame of reference into these expressions of states of being that are foreign to our own can strengthen our ability in day-to-day life to remain open to opinions that may be contrary to those we hold. Such individual practice may be essential if contemporary humanity is to manage to slip through the needle’s eye of the anti-social Consciousness Soul into the super-social realm of the Spirit Self rather than disintegrate into a tragic war of all against all. In Waldorf schools, students are taken through these experiences in the 5th grade. Perhaps that is why they are often considered outstanding in collegial contexts!

Born in the USA, Jan Ranck studied music and comparative arts at Indiana University in Bloomington. She accompanied the London Stage Group on their 1976 USA tour and went on to study eurythmy with Lea van der Pals at the Eurythmeum in Dornach, where she subsequently taught. In 1984, she joined the faculty of The London School of Eurythmy. She left there to complete a training in eurythmy therapy in Stuttgart in 1989, then moved to Israel, where she founded and directed the Jerusalem Eurythmy Ensemble (1990) and the Jerusalem Academy of Eurythmy (1992), and was an instructor in the Jerusalem Waldorf Teacher Bachelor Program in David Yellin Academic College from 1999. Jan has held Master Classes at various venues worldwide, including the Goetheanum and the MA program in Eurythmy held at Emerson College in Great Britain and Eurythmy Spring Valley in New York. She is the representative for Israel in the International Eurythmy Therapy Forum.
