Introduction to Eurythmy
With Astrid Thiersch
Come move with us.
Join us in learning the fundamentals of Eurythmy, a harmonious movement that will leave you feeling balanced and revived in body, soul and spirit. Performing eurythmist and teacher, Astrid Thiersch, will lead us through the movements and meaning of Eurythmy. All levels are welcome!
What is Eurythmy? You decide for yourself. It can be a dance, a type of moving meditation or a form of expression. Eurythmy connects us to our human essence. It cannot be done wrong! We unplug from our devices and plug in to ourselves.
This class is for everyone from Waldorf families and alumni to friends who have never worn Eurythmy slippers.
Sunday mornings, 9:30am-10:45am
Anthroposophy: Rudolf Steiner on Human Development
With David Weber
What was Steiner thinking?
An introduction to the Anthroposophical seven year stages of human development, focusing on childhood. Taught by long-time Waldorf teacher and educational consultant, David Weber, this class will explore Steiner’s study of the first three seven-year phases of growth and development by searching through clues of our own individual lives. An ideal entry point for those curious about the philosophy behind Steiner’s pedagogy, and the nature of the human being.
This course will include lecture and discussion segments. Bring your questions!
The Kingdom of Childhood by Rudolf Steiner included in class fee.

Wet on Wet Watercolor Painting

Open to seasoned painters, stick figure drawers, parents who want to see for themselves, and everyone in between.
All materials will be provided.
