New Community Eurythmy Classes Beginning February 2021

Jolanda Frischknecht will be teaching an exciting new 6-class series, “The Eurythmy Gestures of the Zodiac Signs.” 
In 1924, Rudolf Steiner brought in lecture 10 in the book, Eurythmy as Visible Speech, a whole new cosmic theme: the gestures of the zodiac. He called it simply, “Gestures arising out of the nature of the human being” and “In their totality, these gestures represent the entire human being: we could say, it is the human being split up in twelve separate elements, but still the entire being.” We hope you can join us for these wonderful, cosmic gestures!
Two opportunities to join the six sessions:
Wednesdays, 7:00-8:15pm at Bothmer Hall, 5915 SE Division St., Portland, OR, on 2/10, 2/17, 2/24, 3/3, 3/10, 3/17
Saturdays, 9:00-10:15 at Lajja Space, 10815 SE Main St., Milwaukie on 2/13, 2/20, 2/27, 3/6, 3/13, 3/20
Please contact Jolanda at jolandamf44@gmail.com for more information and to sign up. Spaces are limited. $15 per class (sliding scale available).
