Organic Storytelling – with Nancy Mellon
Hope, and the Power of Seven – Every lesson provides opportunities to attune to the grand organic rhythms of the planetary orchestra. Explore mathematical pictorial language that strengthens memory and nourishes hearty hopefulness throughout childhood.
Therapeutic Eurythmy – with Dale Robinson
Can we experience the seven planetary spheres of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Mercury, Venus and Moon through Eurythmy? The planetary gestures and associated vowels and soul gestures all speak to this question, opening up secrets of what is working into and through our soul from the past, the present and into the future.
Curative Education – with Robyn Brown
Using the framework of the Seven Life Processes, we will look at the work of Steiner’s Curative Education following the progression of healing in the children and our own understanding as educators.
Singing – with Lisa Sargent
Through exploring a modern treatment of Hildegard’s “O Virtus Sapientiae” through practice and performance, participants will experience the gesture of the musical intervals.
Painting – with Jennifer Bundey
Working with breathing, rhythm, expansion and contraction, polarity and harmony, we will explore the artistic process as a reflection of life.
Form Drawing – with Patrick Marooney
Can we characterize the seven life processes artistically through form/gesture? Might there be correspondences in Rudolf Steiner’s planetary seals? We will explore through form drawing the quality of each planetary mood and the way they metamorphose one into the other.
Puppetry – with Jennifer Aguirre
We will explore the puppetry arts through the lens of the Seven Life Processes and specifically the story of The Swan Geese, which will be presented as a table puppet show. A fleece table puppet will be made to take home.
Sculpture – with Ken Smith
Sculpt in clay the forms of the seven Goetheanum columns to follow and experience the archetypal forces behind all creative processes.
