The Development of Spiritual Scientific Research Methods from Art Work

Frank Chester (b.1939) has quietly gained a following around the world for his awe-inspiring presentations in which the geometry behind his Art is brought to life, often with jaw-dropping results. An artist and educator for more than 32 years, Frank began a specific geometric investigation 17 years ago based upon an indication by the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner. In the 17 years since, Frank’s Art has taken a decidedly spiritual direction while maintaining geometric lawfulness. He works with spiritual scientific research methods that belong to a contemporary alchemical tradition.

Eurthmy

As a beautiful movement discipline and artistic experience, eurythmy serves many people as their daily practice of sacred mindful movement, drawing upon the creative forces of the universe and their presence in our own body, soul, and spirit. Eurythmy teaches us how to connect with the planets and the constellations, with the forces that have shaped the natural world, with the forces of language, poetry, and music, and how to unfold all of these in deeply conscious, authentic gesture. It brings joy as an art form, grounding as a personal practice, and healing as a therapeutic modality.
