Colloquium Care I

Pregnancy, birth and early childhood – how do we create the basis for the healthy development of the human being?

20 to 22 June 2019 ­ ­ ­ ­ ­

Dear Colleagues

The early part of life exerts a defining influence on our health for the rest of our lives. Parents are reliant on support during this early phase in the life of their children; at the same time they are often still uncertain and very open towards suggestions from others.

The CARE I working group of the Medical Section at the Goetheanum has attempted to make a start on working out a position on an interdisciplinary basis across specialisms in the fields of pregnancy support, obstetrics, nursing and neonatology, early intervention, artistic therapies as well as in the educational and medical support of parents and their children.

The task of CARE I is seen as seeking to obtain concrete insights from the perspective of spiritual science to support everyone working in this field. These can then be used to build comprehensible, experience-based concepts for the respective issues and disorders which can be applied in practice. The presentation of these concepts for professionals will be supplemented with formats for communication with expectant mothers and with parents.

This colloquium is intended to present and debate the content which has been developed so far.

This invitation is extended to all foundation years specialists: gynaecologists as well as midwives, neonatologists, paediatricians and general practitioners, nurses and teachers, psychotherapists and therapists, social workers as well as active representatives of parent associations. ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ Program ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ We look forward to the exchange of views.
Best regards

Therapeutic Singing Workshop – Melbourne

The therapeutic singing workshop is based on the ‘School of Uncovering the Voice’, developed by Valborg Werbeck-Svardstrom in collaboration with Rudolf Steiner.

This is a very special event & we are bringing Stefanie Aurig from Germany to facilitate this experience in Melbourne & Perth. Stefanie is a singer, therapeutic singing practitioner & Anthroposophical music therapist, who also facilitates trainings in Germany & Brazil.

Therapeutic singing is gentle & meditative, deeply powerful & capable of addressing all aspects of the human being as described by Rudolf Steiner.

Working with the voice therapeutically can also develop the singing voice. 

The workshop in January is an incredibly exciting opportunity & will potentially interest anyone … All teachers, therapists, medical practitioners & the general Anthroposophical community  … There’s also a great early bird rate before 1st December !

It’s also important to note that numbers will be limited to ensure that everyone has the best possible experience, so I would encourage registering as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
