"For truth to tell, dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education: dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with pen- that one must learn how to write." Friedrich Nietzsche

Catch the last Zodiac circle in the series... Monthly Zodiac eurythmy sessions have been going on since last April... and we’ve come the full circle to the beginning of Spring. Have you missed the previous classes? No worries... Each one is tailored for the newbies. Step forward with awakened moves...
Experience conscious unity of people moving together in a eurythmy circle, led by Soulful Wizardess Marta Stemberger. We will move gentle harmonious movement exercises to live piano music and beautiful poetry.
Open to all who can walk. No prior movement experience is needed.
Here are some reflections by people who attended Marta's eurythmy circles:
“The one thing that struck me was how calm and content I felt after her class.”
“I was amazed how serene and invigorated I felt after moving in unity with everyone.”
“Marta is a passionate, giving, kind soul, who centered me, calmed me that day with eurythmy movement.”
“Marta's spontaneous sharings are refreshing to hear, and inspired inner stirring. I appreciate her authenticity in sharing what arose for herself during the class, which I found beautiful.”
SHARE YOUR VIBRANT LIGHT IN A CIRCLE OF LIKE-MINDED SOULS.
Eurythmy is the breathing, alive space among people; it’s the flow of energy as we move along, towards, through, past each other. Not just “dancing with” as in folk dance, or “dancing at” as in ballet, but consciously cultivating the aliveness among the movers. Time and space are crafted into a magical opening where we can all glimpse our own true dreams, the dreams that we were born with, the path of humaneness that awaits our discovery.
Eurythmy is a performance art, pedagogical tool, movement therapy, social art, spiritual practice. It harmoniously blends aspects of movement meditation, social yoga, social tai chi, sacred dance, sacred geometry, esoteric astrology, spatial and kinesthetic awareness, poetry appreciation, musical sensibility, to name just a few ingredients. Rudolf Steiner, who developed eurythmy in the 1910s and 1920s, created a rich set of tools that allow us to make the sounds of music and poetry visible through movement, to transform the inner human activity—images and thoughts—into conscious harmonious movement.
People often ask: “Why would one do this particular movement art?” Let me share with you a short list of the benefits that I’ve personally experienced in myself and observed in others:
– Balance your thoughts, feelings, actions
– Harmonize all dimensions of your earthly existence
– Cultivate spatial and kinesthetic awareness
– Enhance your capacity for creative problem-solving
– Experience the soothing unity of people moving together
– Nourish your life forces for increased well-being
– Increase your overall grace and flow
– Elevate your vibrations to feel peaceful
– Relax and dissolve stress
