Connecting the Eightfold Path with Eurythmy

Rudolf Steiner called the exercises of the eightfold path "exercises for the days of the week". The
names of the days (sun day, moon day etc.) explain their relation to the planets. Since the eurythmy
vowel gestures are related to the planetary forces, we were able to combine the exercises for the
weekdays with the corresponding eurythmic gestures.

With the vowels we foster the birth from within, in the consonants we experience ourselves attentively in the world.
