Experiencing the upper and lower systems

Our body is a picture of the forces that create and sustain it.

The organs that are situated higher up in the body are more affected by the upper system. When we connect ourselves with the forces of the upper system the arms are an important means of expression.

The organs that work lower down in the body are more under the influence of the lower system. In this realm it isn’t that important for us to express ourselves. Here we long for movement and want to use our legs.

The upper system is home to our consciousness. The lower system is home to our life forces.

Becoming more aware of these two systems and how they work can help us to reach our goals more joyfully and effectively, even in our everyday lives.

You can simply look at the first five modules. We show you that you don't really have to do much to allow your body to pull you forwards or bring you back. You also see the application of this in eurythmy and gain an understanding how the sound gestures relate to the human being's inner forces and how they function.

In the last modules we go two steps further. We show how the astral body can play with the upper and lower system in the video "Curving around the room." Elementary functions of the I are shown in the video "Being in front - being behind." To gain access to these modules we ask you to buy the course for 0 Euro or a voluntary amount.
