Practical experiences of the etheric and astral qualities in eurythmy and inner observation, with music

A workshop with Ulrike Wendt 

The etheric is the basis of eurythmy, when one speaks about it however, it proves difficult to understand or to get to grips with. Most eurythmists have a basic feeling for it in their training, but the capacity for a differentiated movement reflecting the different qualities of the etheric, cannot be taken for granted. The aim of this weekend workshop is to develop such a concept of movement. With the help of music we will look again at the Four Ether movements/qualities, giving examples of soul-filled movement.

 

 The American eurythmist Marjorie Spock (1904-2008) engaged in life long research into the movement types of the four etheric qualities. This work can lead to an intensive qualitative experience of pure etheric movement, and how it can be clearly differentiated from the astral elements in movement. Another useful way in to experiencing the etheric, can be found in the research into formative forces following Dorian Schmidt's methodology. The faculty of perception of the etheric in eurythmy can be opened especially through exercises in formative forces research.   

Newcomers and also non-eurythmists are very welcome! 

Ulrike Wendt was born in Berlin and grew up in Mannheim, Germany. She studied romance languages and literature at the University of Heidelberg. After completing her degree she went to Stuttgart to train in eurythmy and was then active for over 12 years in the Else Klink Ensemble and in other performance projects. She has since been teaching and leading workshops in Germany, Switzerland, the Ukraine, Finland and  Chechnya. In 2011 she founded a studio near Weimar where she works on eurythmy theatre projects. She is engaged in the “What moves you” project for young people as a choreograph. In 2013 she completed an MA at the Freie Hochschule Stuttgart.
