“Through a deepening of social life a new understanding of the human being must be found that will permeate human and social development for Evolution” Rudolf Steiner
Fundació Sa Llavor offers a DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING PROGRAMME :
“EURYTHMY IN SOCIAL AND WORKING LIFE”
A post-graduate training for eurythmists and a development program for whoever is interested in developing personal, social and organisational skill in 3 modules throughout 2023-24: December 2023, April and July 2024, with Teresa Mazzei as Social Eurythmy guide.
In cooperation with the Goetheanum, Section for the Performing Arts, Dornach, Switzerland.
Recognized by the Institute for Eurythmy in Working Life, Den Haag, The Netherlands.
Official Public Certification by The Ministry of Education of the Balearic Islands.
A Postgraduate Programme that nurtures and develops the knowledge, sensibility and capacity necessary to work through Eurythmy in social and working context for individual and social organism development.
“A COMMON AIM AND TWO PURPOSES THROUGH A SHARED PATH”
A COMMON AIM
Developing knowledge and skills for sensing the social organisms we are involved in, in order to consciously act on it, each one with one’s own role and competences.
By social organism we refer to all companies or associations, or other organised context such as teams, colleges, study groups, and so on, in which several people come together, within organisations of varied complexity, to achieve something that otherwise would not be possible to get off the ground.
“INSPIRING A HEALTHY LIFE FOR THE SOCIAL ORGANISM”
Experience eurythmic exercises suitable for social and working contexts.
Deepen the application of fundamental elements of Eurythmy in the social and working fields
Transform and create Eurythmy’s exercises for different contexts and different stages of the social organism.
Explore the connection of working with Eurythmy with some theories and approaches for social/organisational development paths.
Develop own process of conducting Eurythmy sessions in the social and working fields.
IDEAL BEHIND THE PROGRAMME
Social organisms live and develop in constant movement. They acquire the ability to learn and evolve thanks to the people that they interact with, and they are more than the sum of individual components.
A social organism never stands still: either it evolves together with the context, generating value for people and the territory or it regresses by destroying value on the same levels. When working with Eurythmy in this field we can contribute, in a conscious and targeted way, to the development of both, the individual and the social organism.
The aim of the Postgraduate Programme is to acquire sensitivity, images, knowledge and tools to start or to nourish the work as a eurythmist with companies or any other organisations in which the attention to individual people goes side by side with the attention to the social organism that they create.
By social organism we refer to all companies or associations, or other organised context such as teams, college, study groups, ethical purchasing groups and so on, in which several people come together with a more or less complex organisation to achieve something that otherwise alone would not be possible to get off the ground.
When working with Eurythmy in this field we can contribute, in a conscious and targeted way, to the development of both: the individual and the social organism, at the same time.
Although an important part of the Programme is dedicated to providing concrete exercises ‐ precious material acquired over the years largely by Annemarie Ehrlich (EWL Institute, Den Haag, The Netherlands) ‐ we don’t mean to provide recipes.
The goal is that everyone develops their own sensitivity and relationship in respect with the social organism, to become able to evaluate and intervene with awareness and competence in situations she/he may encounter, dialoguing and “speaking the language” of the people who work there.
For example in the Programme, we will meet some “words” that are often used when we work together, such as effectiveness and efficiency, team building, responsibility and delegation, motivation, process development, process owner, vision, organisational culture, feedback, information system, change management, leadership styles, job rotation and other more; we will connect them to the work that we can do through Eurythmy. The same will be for some of the soft skills that are required in social and working fields.
For this, the Programme has also parts of practising in creating and leading exercises as well as opportunities to be tutored in real project.
Why use Eurythmy in social and working contexts as a specific Postgraduate Programme?
Each social organism lives in a constant movement and develops out of movement – as much as simple or complex it could be, each organisation ‐ through the people who work in it ‐ is born, grows, goes through phases, and can even end; it therefore acquires a life, an ability to learn and evolve, through the people that work in or around, but it is more than the simply sum of the individual competences.
Moreover, it never stands still, there is no stasis: either it evolves together with the context, generating value for people and the territory or it regresses by destroying value on the same levels. It is a unique entity, in which people move (or should move) in processes that imply a rhythm, interchanges and interdependencies inside and outside, diversification and specialisation, as well as a common image to achieve that is not static but in continuous and potential evolution.
Can this movement be spontaneous or inertial? Evidently not.
Working through Eurythmy with adults who interact in social and work contexts, requires proper elaboration of the Eurythmy’s elements as well as of the leading process of an Eurythmy session connected to the context.
Moreover, all should be in connection with the image of human being and of the social organism we want to nourish, as well as with the development process of both in each biography stage.
It is exactly what is required with children or adults when we work through Eurythmy in pedagogical or health‐disease processes. Each field has its own law and peculiarities that it is important to encounter in order to consciously listen to its needs and potentialities, and consequently and consciously intervene.
The Postgraduate Programme is aimed at eurythmists and non-eurythmists.
Qualified eurythmists with a diploma from the Performing Arts Section of the Goetheanum and Eurythmy students in their last year of training.
Each module will be opened to non‐eurythmists who are interested in conscious movement as part of personal and social development.
Start date December 2023 and end date July 2024: two 7-day modules – December 2023 and April 2024- and one 16-day module – July 2024.
Start date December 2023 and end date July 2024: two 4-day modules – December 2023 and April 2024 – and one 7-day module – July 2024.
The Programme is organised in 4 fundamental parts:
– Learning and developing social exercises
– Retrospective work connected with the development of the conscious soul.
Practising in real social and working contexts
– With the participants, the local community, and local organisations.
– A part of each module will be dedicated to theories and other insights concerning human beings, social organisms and the bridges between the two.
Social Art Processes
– We will enrich each module with different artistic processes to experience social exercises in other artistic forms (modelling, painting, music, speech art).

Teresa Mazzei- Social Eurythmy Leader
“My professional background is based on twentyfive-year- long multiple-work experience in several companies, first as a consultant in leading international consulting firms, then as a treasury manager and a chief financial officer in a company for financial services. For over 13 years I followed Annemarie Ehrlich trainings and workshops because I found some answers to my questions and I grasped the high potential for the development of organizations and of individuals working in them. I am also a member of ASD, Association for Social Development promoted by Lievegoed’s impulse.”
