The first 4-week summer module is viewed as a trial period for both students and faculty. Assessment criteria for the students continued participation are their individual and group movement, their full participation in all activities, their reliability and capacities for change.

Regular homework and research assignments will be given throughout the Training and their completion is mandatory.

Graduation Transcript

Students must participate in all classes, and complete all assignments to receive a graduation transcript. Further, students must participate in two periods of practical clinical/therapeutic practice. First is observation of therapeutic eurythmists in their work with patients as well as a short practice with a few patients under the guidance of a therapeutic eurythmist; for the second the student will work with patients under the mentorship of recognized therapeutic eurythmy practitioners and physicians during the last year of the training period. All practical experiences must be fully documented and submitted to the faculty by set deadlines.

Each block concludes with a private conversation between faculty and student to share questions and concerns, to mutually recognize progress, and to support ongoing orientation and practice for developing further therapeutic capacity.

Venue & Accommodation

The Camphill Village, Copake Community is host to the Therapeutic Eurythmy Training in North America. The village provides material, educational and spiritual support for the training of Therapeutic Eurythmists. Students live in the Village itself, joining in the life of the households, work places, and festivals; and have the opportunity to engage in the life of the Village while they are present. The Village asks students to make a serious commitment to this exchange of support and interest. Camphill life is in itself a social therapeutic schooling. Therapeutic Eurythmy training students receive credit hours for all their learning experiences and practice. These include participating in the living activities of the house; gardening in the vegetable, seed and healing herb gardens; in addition to participating in community eurythmy classes and eurythmy presentations; as well as in conversation and recreation. It is this full community immersion that helps make TETNA unique in its training experience.
