About the event

We have the pleasure to invite you to a unique summer course with Michael D’Aleo from the 28 th of June until the 3 rd of July!

During the course we study the preconditions for our thinking. What do we experience through our senses and how can we train our thinking? Michael D’Aleo lets us do surprising exercises, which he himself has developed during the last years. His unique background as a teacher, naturalist and engineer cultivate in participants new ways of thinking and direct experiences of being more conscious of our choices in both our work and daily life. Many of us experience that the virtual world takes more and more of our attention. 

During this course we will practise the basis of real knowledge through exercises and conversations. Eurythmy/painting/metal work deepen the process.  As our lives become ever busier and surrounded by news and communications that are constantly trying to capture our attention, the ability to be present, have one’s own thoughts and initiate the activities that you want to do becomes ever more important. For educators, we see these same issues even more urgently in our students but inwardly we know that unless we develop a deep strength within our own being, we will be ineffective in our inability to bring about real change and development in our students. Unless each teacher takes one’s own personal and self-development in hand, we lack one of the most important skills necessary to be authentic human teachers to our students. We also need these qualities to personally maximize the possibilities that each of us is gifted in our present human life.   

This week will help each of us develop a ground for self-reliant action that is united with the truthful activities around us. The week will consist of various exercises and experiences to help us perceive more keenly, see through preconceptions, discern where new insights are to be developed and to find that we can in fact DO much more than we ever thought possible.

The course will consist of daily perceptive exercises and activities to awaken ourselves to both our coarser and the subtle senses, conversations and presentations that encourage us toward new way of thinking and afternoon activities where we become present in powerful places in nature. We will also have the opportunity to work with artistic activities through eurythmy, painting and metalwork.
