Rainer Schnurre


Join us for two exciting workshops
with Rainer Schnurre:

Dynamic Zodiac Drawing and Artistic Biography Work
Dynamic Zodiac Drawing and Social Art

April 4 to 7 and April 11 to 13

Rainer was born in 1945 and in his first profession worked in film. He wrote a biography of James Dean. From there he apprenticed as a cabinet maker and met Anthroposophy through his teacher Wofgang Wegener in 1980-84 when he studied Dynamic Form Drawing with Wegener. He then trained as, and worked as, a naturopath using this form of art work both, in therapy and biography work. He developed his own unique way of working. Rainer is also deeply inspired by the idea of developing new social forms especially through Rudolf Steiner’s Three-folding. This he also explores through dynamic zodiac drawing! He’s lived in Berlin, Paderborn, Hildesheim, Germany and worked there as well as in Switzerland, Russia, Prag and now we welcome him to Canada for this special treat! Rainer is a very sensitive artist and therapist, dedicated to Life and Work and he inspires a deep interest in the Human be-coming.

 

Seminar One
Dynamic Zodiac Drawing and Artistic Biography Work
Learning to ‘read’ life experiences

In this four-day intensive the meditative qualities of ‘dynamic zodiac drawing’ by Wolfgang Wegener will form the basis of a new, innovative approach to our biography work. The fruits of an artistic practise like this will lead into learning to ‘read’ life experiences in a new way. Rainer Schnurre likes to call this kind of activity:
“To siphon GOLD from igneous rock”
Some themes and questions we will be working with:
-what IS an experience?
-how can I learn to ‘read’ it?
-what IS a biography?
-why does biography work have to be artistic? -what is the art in artistic biography work?

Seminar Two
Dynamic Zodiac Drawing and Social Art
-Developing a ‘social zodiac’ - Implementing the ideal of ‘Social Three-folding’

During this three day seminar emphasis will be on the ‘birth’ of the twelve zodiac qualities in us out of an artistic dynamic MOVEMENT of the circle. This EXPERIENCE will lead to an understanding and the practise of a PHENOMENOLOGY for new community building and a ‘healthy social life’.
Themes and questions addressed will be:
-what do I say when uttering the word ‘I’? -what do you say when saying ‘You’? -what do we say when saying ‘We’?
These questions lead us organically toward Rudolf Steiner’s impulse of the THREEFOLD SOCIAL ORGANISM (1916)
Questions to focus on will be:
-what is the artistic element in the social art practise? -how can we practise this artistry in our communities?
