June 30, 2020. The silver lining to this corona virus quarantine journey is that “eurythmyonline” has come of age! With all due acknowledgement for how much we have forfeited by being forced to forego live interactions with people, I have been glad to have had the opportunity to share the eurythmy online project with hundreds of viewers from around the world. That is to say: I have just finished my first six-session online (zoom) eurythmy course, and it was truly moving to read how, for many people, this was a deep and true way to experience eurythmy. Some felt, in fact, that they could do eurythmy better online than in a real class, because they could feel the quiet they generated in their own souls as they moved!
As a response to this, I am going to continue offering live online webinars on a weekly basis for the foreseeable future. But first: I would love to share with you the comments of a few of those who watched the first series:
It’s a good thing you have a large and powerful presence that can reach around the world. Well done! There are spiritual forces and beings that really want us to succeed with Eurythmy Online.
I start this day, this week imbued with your voice, image, movement, wisdom, inspiration with gratefulness for the work that you do, have done in bringing eurythmy, light and love to so many in the world.
Thank you for offering these sessions online! At this time in my life, I wouldn’t be able to receive Eurythmy any other way. I appreciate your light through the digital world!
When last we ended our class, you opened the door again for communication, and shared the soulful words, so that you know you are not speaking into the dark. Cynthia, whatever darkness that may have been there before our time together in class is not there after the class has commenced and concluded. In fact, the way that eurythmy breathes into one’s soul; as such, living in one’s soul life, there is no conclusion to what you share with us. It continues to shine brightly, and I am so moved, no pun intended, that you have offered yourself in this way.
Your teaching is truly so profound for me, and I will share with you that my soul has been starving for this experience. I drink in your words of experience and explanation. Your words bring the art to life in such a beautiful way. I have loved eurythmy for a long time.
Not to get too long here, but in December, much to my shock, I woke up and realized that somehow in the night I had had a stroke. It affected my left side, but I am very blessed and am doing very well. I will say my three-fold walking is not quite steady YET, and I cannot stay down for long for certain gestures YET. Being with you, in class and etherically, has made me feel much stronger and connected in a deeper way.
I thank you with all my heart and hope to continue after our class tomorrow. Perhaps we could speak sometime on the phone. You may have some recommendations for me.
Your sharings bring light beyond time. All your students sparkle a little brighter for always!
Your teaching has brought my being into a new movement towards wholeness and I have found a daily practice of uniting spirit with physicality. It is not a blissful experience, but one of true will engagement that brings deep peace and understanding to the process of acceptance and evolution of myself within the universe, and the universe within myself.
I am so grateful for you for these sessions. You have arrived at a beautiful space, presentation, clarity.
I have enjoyed this series very much! I am finding that it’s the only movement modality I have experienced that simultaneously engages both our human place on the earth (and all that entails – form, matter, weight, the senses, time, space) with our spiritual source (and resource) to continually sense and become aware of. All by engaging the body and the imagination. So cool! I don’t even begin to get it all, but I do find that it moves and taps into energy tangibly. And I suspect that the continuous reminder and connection to spiritual forces is incredibly healing and calming to our nervous systems.
I want to thank you for the sublime Eurythmy classes you give in this difficult times that we all go through.
Your workshop is a gift from heaven, I mean this from the bottom of my heart.
