What should our ABSR courses be called in the future?

Wouldn't it have made more sense to find a "very own" name?

That question was asked in a Facebook post today:

„A question about the name of the course: The MBSR, the "Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction" method, has been around for over 20 years, which very successfully conveys elements of mindfulness / meditation. Wouldn't it have made more sense to find a "very own" name? Otherwise it gives the impression that you want to jump on a successful / well-known bandwagon.“

How do I do eurythmy with the heart when the heart is a pump?

I in Action - B2.00_00_13_24.Standbild001.jpg

Something similar has asked me a student some days ago by e-mail. I share my answer with you here. What do you think about that?

Is the heart a pump? I'm moving further and further away from this attitude. Yes, the heart can contract and send blood to the periphery. But that does not make it into a pump that simply runs when you switch it on. The heart has very fine nerves with which it senses what's coming in with the blood, and how it can best respond.

How to retain joy in part two of the course

In a multi-stage process, it is a well-known phenomenon that the middle can present problems. Sometimes fatigue, listlessness or discomfort set in. Here we tell you how you can avoid this during the ABSR stress management course:

The course runs contrary to the weekdays. It begins with the A, which is assigned to Venus (Friday), and arrives in the seventh module at the U, which is assigned to Saturn (Saturday). This is a path that goes from openness and beauty to closure and tartness. (In ABSR...

What do I do if the exercise "sympathy-antipathy"helps me, but doing it causes me pain?

T01 Sympathy and antipathy - eurythmy therapy exercise.1 english.jpg

It is a fundamental law that eurythmy exercises are always carried out so that they are soothing. This is possible because in the case of eurythmy, it is primarily not the physical, but the energetic, ethereal movement that emerges and takes the body with it.Therefore, you can adjust each exercise either from the inside or from the outside so that there is no pain.

A participant in the HSP-1 High Sensitivity course wrote to me:

For some time I have been practising the Hypersensitivity...
