Growing the Eurythmy Online Community
Happy New Year to all of you!
It has been only three months since I launched this bold and inspirational site, and I have watched it grow with joy and excitement. Granted, this has not grown into a viral movement, but it is growing slowly, steadily and organically, and I am deeply touched to think of dozens of people around the world who are now able to do eurythmy in their personal lives.
Some of the feedback that pleases me the most comes from people who say that they have long wanted to do eurythmy at home after having done a workshop, but couldn’t quite remember how to do things when they got home. Now they feel empowered to do so.
Others write to tell me that they have used the eurythmy exercises to feel better, to sleep well, to ground themselves, or even to help recover from surgery! Nothing could make me happier.
More tricky have been the people who have asked me if this work can serve as a training or give them some kind of certification. To them I have had to say that that has never been my intention. There is really no substitution for having a live class or working with other people, and I simply can’t provide that experience with these online classes. I am, however, deeply happy to give you whatever tools I can so that you can do eurythmy in your own personal lives, and I hope you will find an opportunity to find a live teacher near you, travel to work with me here in California or wherever else I teach, or invite me to your community and host a workshop. I would love to come!
I recently became aware of the fact that there are quite a few more people signed up as “users” on the website than are receiving my periodic newsletters. My web technician and I realize that we didn’t interface the users with the newsletter adequately and some of you who are users aren’t being appropriately welcomed or kept in the “loop.”
With this mailing, we have now integrated all users with the newsletter. If you would NOT like to receive the newsletter, please feel free to opt out now! Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and you will be off by the end of the day!
On the other hand, if you have been a user, but haven’t received the newsletters, here are your links to the articles I have written this fall: http://us8.campaign-archive2.com/home/?u=42e5166e8549c860dd9793596&id=81cf2ae355. Have a look: I have written about eurythmy trainings, about my experiences launching this website, about gratitude and sacred Christmas, and several more!
I also want to make all of you aware of our COMMUNITY PAGE. I would love to invite you to begin to use this page as a forum so you can post questions to me and each other about your experiences and what you would like to do with eurythmy. Those of you who have signed up for the whole curriculum will also have begun to use the journal pages that I include in your curriculum: these are leading questions that help you reflect on how you are growing as you do your exercises. Please feel free to expand upon these on the community page.
You may also have requests for me to create other course offerings for you. Please let me know on that page as well.
I also want you to know that I have created winter discounts on some of my favorite “special sequences.” These are the most beautiful exercise sequences that I have assembled, and I would love for as many people as possible to be able to use them in their personal lives.
And finally: if the prices I ask for these courses are too high or too low for you, please take a look at my article on the “gift economy.” I am always willing to enter courageously into the community of new and free financial exchanges with people who want to begin living in the new economy.
