Experiencing the Planets

The first workshop in November on Experiencing the Planets went well and we did a lot of exploring and talking about the quality of the movements and the experiences they gave us. Several people expressed regret at not being able to come and asked if I would do another workshop, so here it is! This workshop will be slightly different so that people who came to the last one can get a different experience but still go deeper in their experience of the Planets. When we read a book again and again we continue to discover new things and see new connections and similarly when we are learning something new it is only through continued repetition that we can go deeper in our experience and understanding of it.

The Planets that we work with in Eurythmy are the 5 planets that can be seen by the naked eye – Venus, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn as well as the Sun and the Moon. Through the gestures developed in eurythmy one can get a feeling for the quality of the individual planets and how they are in relation to each other. In this workshop we will explore these both the gestures and sounds for each Planet as well as working with an Easter verse that contains all the Planets to get an experience of them in movement. You do not need to have been to the Planet workshop in November or any of the previous workshops this year to take part in this one. Anyone can take part regardless of experience.
