You have discovered a new eurythmy discussion group to encourage interest in eurythmy and fellowship among the eurythmy community. We hope you will participate to help get it started.

Topics include performance eurythmy, therapeutic eurythmy, Waldorf education eurythmy and other items of interest. It is also an open public dialogue between audience and performer where all questions about eurythmy are welcome.


"Now all that can be perceived by supersensible vision, all that can thus be learned about the nature of these forms and gestures of the air, can be carried into movements of the arms and hands, into movements of the whole human being. There then arises in visible form the actual counterpart of speech. One can use the entire human body in such a way that it really carries out those movements which are otherwise carried out by the organs connected with speech and music. Thus there arises visible speech, visible music — in other words, the art of Eurythmy." -- Rudolf Steiner

Submitted by GabrielleEurythmy on Thu, 08/20/2009 - 3:13pm.

Qigong and Eurythmy Therapy

Submitted by John Ralph on Sat, 01/31/2009 - 5:09am.
Olga wrote: I am also interested in the opinions of eurythmists about eurythmy and Qi-kung (not Tai Chi). Could we compare them somehow? I'm aware of the differences, but the most interesting things for me are the external curative effects, when a patient sometimes plays a passive role (it is probably not very anthroposophical, but therapists or doctors exist for helping people who suffer). (
As I am not a eurythmy therapist and I have only a thin slice of experience with qigong I cannot make any authoritative statements about either.  I hope that we can develop some useful clarity in conversation here. 

Rudolf Steiner: PoF and Eurythmy

Submitted by John Ralph on Sun, 10/26/2008 - 5:57am.

Dr Unger
asked about order in thinking.
Dr Steiner:
That would be something more ambitious. It would be good if you would develop how the first chapters of The Philosophy of Freedom could be understood, if you could work out a eurythmical consonantal study; where the chapters go on to “moral imagination”, you arrive at the vowel element. Lead everything to eurythmy.

From the “Faculty Meeting at the Eurythmeum, Stuttgart, 30th April 1924” (in R. Steiner, Eurythmy: Its birth and development. GA 277a. Anastasi, Weobley 2002. P.142)

Why does Steiner relate the larynx to eurythmy?

Submitted by John Ralph on Sat, 10/06/2007 - 8:20am.

Rudolf Steiner asserted that "in eurythmy the body becomes larynx". The question came by email: Why the larynx?  Why not any other organ such as an ear?
