Event Description

Featuring Barry Lia

Take a walk amid the Wandering Stars on your own two feet! In bodily three-dimensional movement, you'll experience the difference between the abstract scientific perspective of "space" we learn by fourth grade and the complementary human-centered view of planetary motion we actually see from here on earth. Using a pole, some bailing twine and our own bodies we will physically step out the orbits of the planets. In a way you can readily grasp and can't easily forget, you’ll see retrograde motion of the planets and gain concrete appreciation for why inner and outer planets are considered to be so. In further regard to biodynamic practice, we’ll also explore lunar rhythms kinesthetically. Shoes permitted, and no eurythmy experience necessary!
