given by Jan Ranck with contributions from Dr. James Dyson
A nine-day course led by Jan Ranck, open to teachers, doctors, carers, therapists as well as eurythmists.
Covering the principles of tone eurythmy therapy as developed by Lea can see Pals in response to indications by Rudolf Steiner.
Brochure and participant feedback available.
In Rudolf Steiner’s lectures Eurythmy as Visible Music he repeatedly indicated that elements of this new art of movement could be effective as therapy. Inspired by the examples he provided, eurythmist Lea van der Pals and medical doctor Margarete Kirchner-Bockholt worked together in the late 1950s to develop a sequence of exercises in connection with the diseases discussed by Rudolf Steiner and Ita Wegman in their book Extending Practical Medicine or Fundamentals of Therapy.
While this professional course is for eurythmy therapists and medical doctors, the insights it provides into the human being and the deeply transformative effect it has on the participant can benefit and enrich the life and work of artists, teachers, music, art, and physical therapists, as well as the student or lay enthusiast.
The exercises consist of tone eurythmy in its purest form and their effectiveness has been proven in practice.
The 60 course hours qualify as AnthroMed Professional Development Hours (PDHs)
