I am looking forward to seeing many of you at our ET/EYT conference & AGM on 29th February in Stroud.
As you might remember, last year I reported on my research project ‘Eurythmy as a Care Tool’ and shared out a summary sheet of the results of my pilot study in a home for learning disabled young adults. Since then, the research has somewhat progressed – I received a grant from Helios Medical Centre Bristol for ‘bringing Anthroposophy out into the world’ with which I was able to trial the study in two further care homes for learning disabled adults to corroborate my findings. I also recruited a Eurythmist (Hannele Greenhalgh from Bristol) to help me research whether the method can be taught effectively by a non-therapist and to further develop the method to be also for carers of people with dementia. Hannele is currently through her first half of a 12-week trial run.
The aim of the research is twofold:
- Getting more people from the non-anthroposophical world to know about Eurythmy
- Creating more places of work for Eurythmists and Eurythmy therapists
The results so far are promising and exciting and I would like to take the opportunity of the conference weekend to meet with those of you who are interested in my research project in an add-on session on Sunday morning (1st March) from 9.30am to 11.30am at the town hall in Stroud.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions.
With warm regards,
