Samples of his work are to be found in this introductory reader in which Beth Usher brings together excerpts from Steiner's many talks and writings on Eurythmy. The volume also features an editorial introduction, commentary and notes. – Chapters: In the beginning, God created out of movement; School eurythmy – a kind of spiritual gymnastics; Eurythmy therapy – the word of the heavens is the being of man; Silent soul: speaking soul.
