Eurythmy book in Arabic



Science discovers. Arts creates.


Research is also done in arts. An example: A research project was conducted on stress reduction on the working place through the practicing of eurythmy. One of our eurythmy teachers investigated this on the base of a master thesis. 15 supervisors of SEKEMs textile production NatureTex participated in the project. It was found that there was a significant decrease in the stress hormone Cortisol. Another study addressed the close relationship between music and human beings.
