The Physiology of Eurythmy Therapy
Eurythmy is a modern art of movement, and eurythmists work in the areas of art, healing, and education. The benefits as a healing social art are well known for both children and adults.
Rudolf Steiner gave a course on eurythmy therapy in which he described the process of “re-enlivening the whole physiology.” The authors of this book have researched eurythmy therapy for many years and The Physiology of Eurythmy Therapy provides a comprehensive overview of their work.
This book is a translation from German of Zur Physiologie der Heileurythmie: Lautgesetze und Therapieordnungen (Verlag am Goetheanum, 2016).
