<B>Active Arithmetic </B><I> Movement and Mathematics Teaching in the Lower Grades of a Waldorf School</I>, ANDERSEN, HENNING
1 Active Arithmetic Movement and Mathematics Teaching in the Lower Grades of a Waldorf School
1936367505 / 9781936367504 
5.5 x 7.5 inches, illustrated.
Is it possible to teach arithmetic in the first years of schooling in such a way that the majority of pupils do not experience the lesson as a strain? Are there ways of practicing arithmetic that do not adversely affect the child’s zest for life?

Active Arithmetic! Describes the very special way in which arithmetic is taught in a Rudolf Steiner/Waldorf school. Rather than attempting to give a complete account of this teaching method, the book concentrates upon the many different aspects of movement and drawing exercises. These exercises satisfy both the children’s great need for physical activity and their innate curiosity about the world of numbers.

The book is directed not only to teachers of arithmetic in the younger classes, but also to people who work with the same age group outside of school using games and movement. Parents with children requiring special support at home and teachers working with children with special needs will find in the book a wealthy source of helpful ideas.

Written by an experienced Waldorf teacher in Denmark, Active Arithmetic tells how to make math come alive through movement, games, and rhythm in the early grades. Making math a meaningful and memorable event in a young child's life is all important. Active Arithmetic will help you to do it! All recent brain development illustrates that movement is the key to a rich and fully developed skill set in children. Music and rhythm have been shown to light up the whole brain and to help children understand and apply complex math concepts. The many ideas, imaginative games and activities described by this experienced Waldorf teacher hold the key to "Aha!" moments for comprehending important math ideas.

<B>Becoming Aware of the Logos </B><I> The Way of St. John the Evangelist</I>, KUHLEWIND, GEORG
8 Becoming Aware of the Logos The Way of St. John the Evangelist
0940262096 / 9780940262096 Paperback 
“A single human being has no reality; the existence of ‘man’ begins with the word that floats between I and you. The Logos connects human beings through the Word; all else is temptation or a temporary connection.” — Georg Kühlewind
“To become aware of the Logos is to become aware of the Logos in oneself.... The world speaks. Before all else, it utters speaking itself. Or does speaking utter the world.” So begin the first two chapters of this inspired, existential meditation on the contemporary meaning of the message of St. John: “In the beginning was the Word.”

Through this Word—Logos—all things became. In it was life, the light of human beings. It shown I the darkness, and the darkness received it not. It was in the world, and the world did not know it. It entered individual being, and, to those who received it, it gave the ability to become the children of God. Its radiance was seen, full of grace and truth.

The fruit of many years of study and meditation, Becoming Aware of the Logos places the reader in the world of living thinking and cognitive love. It teaches the way of grace and truth in a radical, original manner. For the Logos, although it is the ground of any true logic, is beyond ordinary dialectic. The author does not approach his subject conventionally, but penetrates and communicates it by unfolding central themes such as: the Logos in the beginning; the light in the darkness; the speaker; life; spirit; grace; and truth.
Georg Kühlewind (1924–2006) was a Hungarian philosopher, writer, lecturer, and meditation teacher who worked from the tradition of Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual science. Setting aside his early interest in music and psychology, he pursued a successful professional career as a physical chemist. Meanwhile, he continued to deepen his spiritual practice and insights. A prolific author (most of whose works are still only in German), Georg Kühlewind spent much time traveling the world, lecturing and leading workshops and seminars in meditation, psychology, epistemology, child development, anthroposophy, and esoteric Christianity. He was the author of numerous books. Kühlewind died January 15, 2006 at the age of 83.

<B>Children's Lyre pentatonic 7 string d-e </B><I> </I>
10 Children's Lyre pentatonic 7 string d-e

This beautiful lyre gives a clear, light-filled sound, carried by the tone quality of the craftsmanship. Suitable for little lyre players from age 5 years onwards. Comes with a tuning key and stringing information sheet. The 7 stringed Celestial Lyre is tuned in a pentatonic scale which allow the fingers to move freely over the strings, always producing a harmonious tune. This scale spans over five whole tone steps and is built up by an open fifth tuning. This character often gives rise to a descending musical motive, one could say it is a descending scale. This can often be noticed in folk music from different parts of the world where this scale is used.

The Auris Children's Lyre arose out of the striving to harmonise movement and melody with the child's sense of sound. When holding it in the left hand the lower strings are closer to the body. Deep tones and descending melodies are created by the inward movement of the hand towards the body. Ascending melodies are created by the outward movement of the hand. There are both left and right-handed versions of this lyre.

Handcrafted in Sweden from Maplewood.
Dimensions: 38cm x 17cm
Age group: 5 and above

<B>Choroi Pentatonic Children's Harp 7-String </B><I> Lyre</I>
11 Choroi Pentatonic Children's Harp 7-String Lyre

The Choroi Children's Harp is a pentatonically tuned instrument. Its graceful sculpted form and ethereal tone make the harp ideal for stimulating the young child's listening and free music making. The harp can be given to the child at age five or six as his/her first string instrument. Children's Harp in various woods (ash maple elm cherry) 7 steel strings.
Pentatonic ?mood of the fifth'-tuning: d'-e'-g'-a'-b'-d''-e''

The Choroi lyres and harps were created through a striving for a characteristic radiant tone deriving its intensity from the properties of the different types of wood used in their construction. Through carefully formed "organs" inside the instruments these qualities of the wood are brought into connection with the resonating instrument cavity. Variously shaped sound openings mediate between this inner space and the space around the instrument. Through this interaction a mobile equilibrium arises giving the tone a living quality. All the instruments are built with the highest quality craftsmanship from naturally colored carefully aged wood. In our striving for a beautiful finish we work with traditional methods including the use of natural resins and hand polishing.

<B>Cosmic Music </B><I> Musical Keys to the Interpretation of Reality</I>, GODWIN, JOSCELYN
13 Cosmic Music Musical Keys to the Interpretation of Reality
089281070X / 9780892810703 1989 Paperback 
The idea that the universe is created out of sound or music (and therefore is music) is a very ancient one. In this book, Joscelyn Godwin brings together three contemporary German thinkers who exemplify this tradition in its modern variants: Marius Schneider, Rudolf Haase, and Hans Erhard Lauer. The selections draw on ancient Indian sources and mythology; Kepler's Platonic vision of a musical, geometric universe; and the evolution of the tone systems of music. While every music lover senses the power and truth that reside in music, very few actually approach music as a path to cosmic knowledge. Godwin takes literally Beethoven's assertion that "Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom or philosophy." Godwin writes, ." . .to penetrate the mysteries of music is to prepare for initiation into those fathomless mysteries of man and cosmos."

14 Creative Choir, The A Holistic Approach to Working with Singers
1906999759 / 9781906999759 
Choral singing is enjoying a renaissance, and this timely book contributes to our understanding of what choir work can and should be about. Starting with the idea that education supports the rehearsal process, James Neilson Graham delves into the theory and practice of working with singers, drawing on the insights of Emile Jaques-Dalcroze in relation to movement and the work of Valborg Werbeck-Svärdström in relation to the voice. Singing is an aspect of our common humanity, and the health of the human socio-musical organism is reflected in choral sound. How can the individual flourish in the context of so many? How can a conductor facilitate this process?

In lively fashion (with more than seventy music examples, diagrams, and illustrations), Neilson Graham challenges orthodoxies and opens up new developmental pathways for choir leaders and choral singers.

Dr. Jenny's cymatic images are truly awe-inspiring, not only for their visual beauty in portraying the inherent responsiveness of matter to sound (vibration) but because they inspire a deep recognition that we, too, are part and parcel of this same complex and intricate vibrational matrix - the music of the spheres! These pages illumine the very principles which inspired the ancient Greek philosophers Heraclitus, Pythagoras and Plato, and cosmologists Giordano Bruno and Johannes Kepler.

1782501657 / 9781782501657 2015 2nd Edition Paperback

<B>Eurythmy and The English Language </B><I> Davidson, Annelies</I>
20 Eurythmy and The English Language Davidson, Annelies

1910785016 / 9781910785010 2015 
Since its first appearance in the study-edition of Rudolf Steiner's lecture-cycle Eurythmy as Visible Speech (Anastasi Ltd, 2005) this contribution "Eurythmy and the English Language" by Annelies Davidson has proved its value. Packed with useful observations, and above all, an examination of the living principles, this essay is recognised as the definitive introduction to an important area of eurythmy research and practice. The writer reflects on years of artistic exploration of the English language with Marguerite Lundgren and on her own extensive work.
Marguerite Lundgren was a living example of how it is possible to develop an ear for the creative impulses available especially in music and the sounds of speech. Along with other authorities, mention is made here of Marguerite's respect for the sensitive scholarship of Adam Bittleston - particularly evident in the study of Shakespeare - and of the insights of the philosopher of language Owen Barfield. These scholars were profoundly aware of the work of the polymath and linguist Professor Hermann Beckh, who, as a foremost pupil of Rudolf Steiner, followed up Novalis' claim for "genetic etymology", for the creative sounds of speech.
This Mystery wisdom goes back to the first known theory of language in Plato's dialogue Cratylus. Eurythmists attempt to access the primal creativity still available, as Steiner points out, in the language we speak today. In this way, in pursuing their art eurythmists aim to contribute to the renewal of the word in our time.

ANNELIES DAVIDSON was born and educated in Holland. In 1974 she graduated from the London School of Eurythmy, England, taught around London and performed with the London Stage Group which toured Europe and the USA. From 1986-2002 she taught in the Eurythmy School, Spring Valley, New York and performed with the Ensemble. She currently works freelance as a teacher and director, focusing on eurythmy in relation to the spoken word.
