Eurythmy is a way of transforming speech sounds into movement, making the sounds visible and drawing out their power. The movement gestures of eurythmy are alive and dynamic and have a powerful effect on body, soul and spirit—as when a stone falls into water and leaves visible ripples. Eurythmy therapy is an effective means of restoring balance to the human body and stimulating self-healing through healthy movement.

This unique book, the first significant attempt to photographically record and demonstrate basic eurythmy therapy movements, describes and illustrates the core speech/sound exercises—vowel exercises, consonant exercises and soul exercises that include love, hope, and sympathy.

This book is not a replacement for a qualified eurythmy therapist, but is intended as guidance and orientation for patients practicing on their own—perhaps after a few initial sessions with a therapist—or for more experienced, nonprofessional eurythmists.
