„The Art of Recognition” 

"I was very surprised and deeply amazed when in 2003 I first came into contact with Eurythmy in working life. For the third time living the role of a “student”, but this time in Elena Zucolli’s “Eurythmy School” in Dornach, Switzerland, when I was acquainted with Annemarie Ehrlich’s “Eurythmy in Working Life”, I suddenly saw the “absolute” tool for changing authoritarian schemes in business structures, economic models and in social interactions that is also suitable for the transformation of personal qualities of staff.

The most striking thing was that I saw a combination of art with the world of practical reality, which is reflected today in the business and social environment: not therapy, but a platform for self-change, transformation of “schemes”, and the birth of new values, a new level of consciousness.

I persistently followed this path.

And while going deeper into a new profession, being at the Institute of Eurythmy in Working Life in the Hague in 2005, I was struck by the second time. This time, by the deepest knowledge of Annemarie Ehrlich in the field of the latest technologies of transformational development, both accessible and unique.

I saw philosophy and Anthroposophy in action for the benefit of the most effective spheres of society - working, business and social."
