A warm welcome to the Eurythmy Therapy International Website!
Purpose and Aim
This is the platform for Eurythmy Therapy as understood in Anthroposophic Medicine. The platform serves to:
- Lay out what the profession does
- Describe the international guidelines and structures in place
- Support international communication and thus strengthen our worldwide network
- Offer colleagues in countries where local associations are not yet established, a forum through which they may be in contact with colleagues and kept abreast of projects and current topics of professional interest.
The platform serves to represent Eurythmy therapy in the public domain as well as in work with other organisations.
Patients may use the platform to learn more about the therapy.
The International Eurythmy Therapy Trainers Circle under the Medical Section at the Goetheanum, Switzerland is responsible for the accreditation of trainings. Trainings with this accreditation issue diplomas of eurythmy therapy countersigned by the Medical Section.
The Anthroposophic Medical Movement is a network of independent institutions and professions the world over working with Anthroposophic Medicine. Representatives from the various areas form the International Coordination Group for Anthroposophic Medicine: IKAM (Internationalen Koordination Anthroposophische Medizin) a body under the Medical Section of the Anthroposophical Society.
Within IKAM each profession has a representative who links the professional group and the Medical Section. The coordinator represents the profession of eurythmy therapy within the multidisciplinary team of IKAM and IKAM within the international circle of eurythmy therapy. The coordinator, Hana Adamcova, is the first port of call for all matters concerning eurythmy therapy internationally.
The International Coordination Eurythmy Therapy looks after all matters relating to eurythmy therapy within the Medical Section. Groups with similar responsibilities or interests such as area of work, research or training find forums for their co-working in the International Coordination. Overarching themes are identified and explored by colleagues competent in any one case.

Anthroposophy forms the basis for the work and describes the way we view the human being. It offers a holistic, highly differentiated understanding of the relationships of body, soul and spirit to each other and to the functional levels (matter, vitality, emotions and the concept of self) in the organism.
