Inspired by Rudolf Steiner’s indication that tone eurythmy therapy should be developed in addition to speech eurythmy therapy, the eurythmist Lea van der Pals and the medical doctor Margarete Kirchner-Bockholt worked together in the late 1950’s to develop a sequence of exercises in connection with the diseases discussed in Rudolf Steiner and Ita Wegman’s book “Extending Practical Medicine”.

This course, which includes a review of all of the elements of tone eurythmy, was taught for many years by Lea van der Pals within various eurythmy therapy trainings, and the effectiveness of the exercises was shown in practice. When for health reasons Lea van der Pals was prevented from continuing to teach, she passed the torch to Annemarie Baeschlin, who took over holding the course and assisted Lea van der Pals in bringing the material into book form.

At this time Jan Ranck held the practice sessions within Annemarie Baeschlin’s courses, and was also involved with compositional and editorial suggestions for the publication “Ton-Heileurythmie”, Verlag am Goetheanum 1991, published in English in 2009 as “Tone Eurythmy Therapy” by the Medical Section at the Goetheanum.

Jan Ranck was born in America, where she studied music and comparative arts at Indiana University in Bloomington.  She accompanied the London Stage Group on their 1976 USA tour and went on to study eurythmy in Dornach with Lea van der Pals. She was a faculty member of the Eurythmeum in Dornach and The London School of Eurythmy.  After completing a eurythmy therapy training in Stuttgart in 1989 she moved to Israel and is currently the founding director of the Jerusalem Eurythmy Ensemble (1990) and the Jerusalem Academy of Eurythmy (1992).  She is also an instructor in the Jerusalem Waldorf Teacher Bachelor Program in David Yellin Academic College, and a guest teacher in various venues worldwide, including the Goetheanum and the MA Program in Eurythmy held in Emerson College and Spring Valley.  She is the representative for Israel in the International Department of Eurythmy Therapy (“Eurythmy Therapy Forum”).

Besides the material mentioned above, Lea van der Pals’ book “The Human Being as Music” (Robinswood Press 1992), published in German in 1969 as “Der Mensch Musik”, is highly recommended as background reading for the course.

Worldwide Eurythmy Conference

The Apollonian Course of 1915 Cosmic Word – Human Speech
6 – 10 April 2015
Conference of the Section for Performing Arts
The conference begins on Easter Monday, 6 April 2015, at 7 p.m. and ends on Friday, 10 April 2015, at 10 p.m.
In August 1915, Rudolf Steiner invited the four eurythmy teachers Elisabeth Dollfus, Tatiana Kisseleff, Lory Smits and Erna Wolfram to a course at the Goetheanum that would form the foundation for the further development of the cosmic dimension of eurythmy and of the soul qualities in speech. Now, a hundred years later, this conference will provide the framework for our explo- ration – in lectures, workshops and conversations – of the impulses given in 1915 and their unfolding since then. How are we making use of these foundations today?
Margrethe Solstad, Shaina Stoehr, Stefan Hasler
