About the education
FLOW & U – part-time eurythmy training
for future teachers, therapists & artists
The initiative in Denmark offers a contemporary part-time Eurythmy training. The courses of study are aimed at beginners as well as advanced students dedicated to eurythmy and interested in its professional fields. The teaching draws on practice and in part overlaps other courses. The focal point lies in self-guidance/self-realization, education/pedagogy, health and society. The method follows an extended concept of art; it is oriented towards demand and need and aligns with the contemporary demands and challenges flexibly as well as consciously with future demanding societal challenges of the individual and of the professional world. New learning concepts and forms of training will be consulted and tested with the participants in a work in progress style.

What are the meanings of ‘Flow & U’?
The name of the eurythmy education is inspired by the publication ‘Theory U: leading from the future’ by Otto Scharmer, senior lecturer at MIT. It is a succesful method of management, teaching and learning. Here, ‘U’ stands as symbol for a deepening, or a ‘diving under the surface’. ‘Flow’ is the way to enact such a deepening. It is a way of being present in and through movement, as expressed by psychologist Mihaily Csikszentmihalyi.
What does ‘Flow-exercises’ mean?
Through cross-curricular teaching units comes a great equal learning and a ‘togetherness atmosphere’, where u.a. agile motor skills of experienced to new students can flow body-intelligently. Also, on-going movement improvisations with changing leadership strengthen this and are part of the method. Flow exercises are part of the training concept and will be further developed and evaluated with the students work-in-progress.
