The Inner Life of Color

Reg Down

Softbound

"Phonebook" length - with hundreds of line drawings by the author

$38.50

Reg Down’s Color and Gesture is a monumental work that explores in depth and with beauty the inner life of color as expressed through eurythmy and Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual vision.  What appears is a world of incredible richness, depth and beauty in the most common, unlikely and unexpected of places: that of gestureGesture reveals the human soul, and the fabric of the soul is color; as a result, we find that the souls’ infinite expressiveness, with all its goodness, pathos, waywardness and humor, is intimately woven through with color experiences.

When we approach gesture via color, we discover whole gesture families, with, at times, the most unforeseen of bedfellows.  We gain new insights into soul gestures, acting gestures, animal, planetary and zodiac gestures.  The underlying eurythmic gestures of speech and music are also explored, and we learn to expreience how the color chords and underlying gesure are themselves a structured, musically-ordered language.

When we approach color via gesture, we find inner laws, relationships and dynamics that allow us to gain, via artistic activity, not only a deeper understanding of color as a whole, but also a conscious foothold in the astral and etheric worlds.

What is so special about telling stories? Unlike reading from a book, one’s arms are free to gesture and use props—or give a tickle. Above all, one can make eye contact and see and respond to a child’s reactions.

This collection of classic tales includes advice on how to tell stories to children—how to establish a routine, create a mood, involve children, and personalize stories. The stories are suitable for children three to seven years of age. Many are old favorites that are told regularly in kindergartens, nurseries, and schools—tales about magical creatures and exotic animals, as well as stories from everyday life. Many people believe they cannot tell stories. Beatrys Lockie, however, believes firmly that everyone is a storyteller, though it may take a little practice.

Stories are offered by age groups: Ages 3-4, 5-6 and 6-7 and include: “The Little Jug”; “The Mitten”; “The Tomten”; “The Star Child”; “How the Zebra Got its Stripes”; “King Grizzly Beard”; and “Hans in Luck.”

A warm and wonderful book – something every parent will want close at hand.

Eurythmy for the Young Child is a stunning collection of stories, songs and poems that will serve your children equally well as the basis for eurythmy, storytime, circle time or simple, delightful interludes throughout the day.

Estelle Bryer has had 45 years experience working with kindergarten children as teacher, adviser, puppeteer and eurythmy therapist but specializing as kindergarten eurythmist. The all-encompassing contents are a culmination of her work. The delightful lessons are suitable for circle time or eurythmy lessons (ages 3-8years), and are complete in themselves. They cover the seasons, festivals and stories such as the Turnip or Golden Goose and more, and include written music. They have separate suggestions for use by the kindergarten or eurythmy teacher.

There are also helpful suggestions and instructions for the kindergarten teacher or eurythmist in handling problems, creating moods and using descriptive gestures or vowels and consonants. The importance of eurythmy and the why and how it effects the development of the young child is clearly gone into as well as all the vital elements used for healthy growth. The stories, songs and poems are highly imaginative and fun!
