Cultivating the Etheric in Teaching: A Lecture with Jon McAlice

Cultivating the Etheric in Teaching:
A Lecture with Jon McAlice

To Benefit the ESV 4th Year Trip to
Dornach, Switzerland

 

Monday, January 29, 2018, 7:30 – 9:00 p.m.
School of Eurythmy, Chestnut Ridge, NY
Course Fee: $20

We are thrilled to have Jon McAlice with us at ESV, sharing his insights about this theme to benefit the ESV 4th Year class trip to Dornach, Switzerland, in June 2018. In this lecture, he will delve into the growing presence of the digital in our life-world experiences and its impact on child development in ways we are only beginning to understand. Directly affected are children’s life forces. These provide the basis for a child’s capacity to trust, the ability to be attentive, and to feel at home in the world. As the child grows, these forces work formatively within the soul as the web of memory and the life of thought. In the digital, we find a world that is the antithesis of the inner life of the growing child. It is time to better understand the nature of the etheric – the forces of life and growth – and to explore ways to strengthen it.

 

Jon McAlice has worked in the international Waldorf schools movement for many years as a teacher and lecturer. He has been involved in teacher training institutes throughout Europe and in the United States, focusing primarily on questions of human development and the psychology of learning.  For many years a fellow at the Goetheanum in Switzerland, he headed up research projects on curricular development, collegial leadership, and the relationship between Waldorf education and today’s working world. Since returning to the States in 2000, he has initiated and collaborated on various teacher education and development projects and taught high school science and philosophy courses.  Co-founder of the Center of Contextual Studies, he currently lives in Ghent, NY, where he works with a variety of educational initiatives and with Waldorf schools across the country on questions of teacher development, school governance and generally finding new ways to meet new questions.

The Human Being's Spatial Development from Birth to 21: An Open Course with Jane Swain

The Human Being’s Spatial Development from Birth to 21: An Open Course with Jane Swain

Monday, February 12, 2018
School of Eurythmy, Chestnut Ridge, NY
Course Fee: $75

There are deep mysteries embedded in classical children’s games and activities. What do classic games and activities have to do with the development of healthy personal and interpersonal space and a balanced relationship in the three planes of space? Why is this important? Why do young children love “Ring Around the Rosie”? Why does Joey insist on climbing up onto the back of the sofa and jumping down to fall on the floor? Why have public grade schools across the country banned the age-old favorite game of tag at recess? Why doesn’t Susie “sit up” at her desk in school?

Children’s movements have a spatial component to them, which if made known, can transform our understanding of children’s behaviors. Jane will draw upon her rich experience of working with children of all ages to illustrate basic principles of the human being’s spatial journey over time, so that educators and parents can go home equipped with new insights to support children’s healthy spatial development.

Jane Swain is a graduate of the Level III training in Spacial Dynamics®.  Spacial Dynamics® is embedded deeply into Jane’s work as a pediatric physical therapist, adult educator at Sophia’s Hearth Family Center in Keene, New Hampshire, and also at regional and international conferences, consultant to early childhood and grade school classrooms, and as a previous movement education teacher in the younger grades at the Monadnock Waldorf School. In addition, Jane has co-taught workshops with Jaimen McMillan, director of the Spacial Dynamics Institute® and has written articles dealing with Spacial Dynamics® and motor development.

Frontier Eurythmy Part-time Training Course

Frontier Eurythmy Part-time Training: Enrolling now for New Class Beginning in April 2018!

First Training Block:
Sunday, April 15 – Saturday, April  21, 2018

 

We are delighted to announce that a new class is forming in our Frontier Part-Time Training Program. The Frontier program is ideal for those who want to begin their studies in professional eurythmy, while honoring other existing commitments. Many of our graduates have started their professional training in eurythmy through studying in this program. The program is designed to cover the first-year curriculum of the full-time training over two years, with seven weeks of study in each year, accompanied by a curriculum of independent study between blocks. Unlike the full-time training at Eurythmy Spring Valley, we do not offer a new Frontier class regularly, so if you’ve been thinking about beginning the eurythmy training, this is your best opportunity to enroll in the new class of our part-time training program.


For information on enrollment and the training tuition, please call Eurythmy Spring Valley at 845-352-5020, ext. 113, or email: info@eurythmy.org.
