Following fully booked workshops in September in both Edinburgh and Glasgow I have managed to fit in another workshop in Edinburgh before Christmas along the same themes of Mindful and Social Eurythmy/Movement, with a focus on centrering, balancing, finetuning our senses and connecting. Today’s society doesn’t always favour and enable positive connections with other people and social Eurythmy is a great way of promoting connection and awareness of social dynamics. Mindful Eurythmy is a great aid in a time when experts say we are in the middle of a stress epidemic and mental health problems are on the rise.

Eurythmy is an art form, but, as you can see on this website, it is also a form of mindful and social movement. It’s effectiveness as a mindfulness tool lies not just in the strengthening of the mind-body connection, but in the fact that Eurythmy as a movement form in itself has a harmonizing effect. Many of the Eurythmy exercises that can be used mindfully bring balance to e.g. our sense of our own space and to how our thinking, feeling and willing/doing work together.
I am very pleased to have been asked by Chris Grant of “Anthroposophy in Glasgow” to lead a public Eurythmy workshop in Glasgow for the first time. I have led workshops in different organisations on the west coast of Scotland, but this will be the first public one. The workshop will be an introduction to social and mindful eurythmy and can be attended by anyone regardless of experience with movement.
This Mindful Eurythmy Workshop offers a chance to learn some simple, yet effective, movement exercises that can help become more present and bring the body and mind to a relaxed and calm state. They deepen with practice and can be practised anywhere you have a little space to move. The benefits of these exercises grow over time and they offer a way of centring yourself and finding inner balance as well as being calming.
