Nurturing the Twelve Senses for a Happy and Healthy Childhood

This is a unique opportunity to hear Lou speak on this interesting topic. Lou’s presentations are always insightful, humorous, practical, and full of everyday wisdom and ideas for parents to take home to help children to flourish.

Day: Tuesday 19th June at 7.30pm to 9pm

Venue: The Iona School, 310, Sneinton Dale, Nottingham, NG 37DN

Cost: £5 on the door

Lou Harvey-Zahra is a mother of two, a Waldorf-Steiner teacher and popular parenting author with three books including the bestselling Happy Child, Happy Home and Creative Discipline, Connected Family (Floris Book). Lou presents across Australia, UK, and L.A.

“Thank you so much Lou, I left feeling confident that I could use these practical and transformative ideas straight away to make a difference to our family. It’s day four after hearing you speak and we are already having more fun, more magic and more love.” Georgie Williams (parent).

Lou’s books will be available at the event £14.99 (cash only), and from all online book sites, worldwide and Steiner-inspired stores.

14. March 2018 · Comments Off on “Dreamscapes” Eurythmy West Midlands performance at The Iona School on Tues 24th April at 7.30pm in the Hall · Categories: Eurythmy, Independent schools Nottingham, performance
Iona School is delighted to be hosting a performance by Eurythmy West Midlands Young Stage Group Touring Programme called “Dreamscapes” on Tuesday 24th April 2018 at 7.30pm in the Hall.  Suitable for ages 12+.
“Dreamscapes” is a magical journey depicting the fragile borders between different realities, the changing shades and colours of authentic human experience – reflecting the times in which we live. The central piece is a version of D. H. Lawrence’s extraordinary final, and largely unknown poem, “The Ship of Death”. Revelatory works by Debussy, Yeats, Shakespeare, T.S. Eliot, Chopin, Alois Zimmermann-and a good dose of humour-provide further material for this rich poetic-musical performance.
The three gifted young eurythmists, who studied at Eurythmeum-CH, are originally from Germany, Japan and Taiwan. They came to Engalnd to enhance their performance skills with Eurythmy West Midlands.
They are pleased to be able to tour with experienced artists Bob Davie (cello), Alan Stott (piano) and Geoffrey Norris (speech).
To book tickets for this unique event please contact: dominique@theionaschool.org.uk or ring 0115 9415295.
