Weekend Workshop Speech Intensives



We offer a variety of workshops throughout the year, exploring themes including epic and lyric poetry, dramatic encounter, and storytelling. This is a wonderful experience in cultivating our relationship to the spoken word that can support many areas of life. All levels of experience welcome! 


Consonants: Earth and Air with Barbara Renold

January 26-27, 2019

By enlivening our speaking of consonants, we have a tool to create imaginative pictures of the natural world through speech. Working with consonantal sounds can evoke experiences of the four Greek categories of elements: earth, water, air and fire. During this weekend, we will concentrate on the qualities of earth and air with speech exercises and poetry. 

Schedule:   Saturday 9:30-5:30, Sunday 9:30-12

Location: Red Barn, Hungry Hollow Road, Chestnut Ridge, NY

Cost: $90-115 (sliding scale)


The Speaking Word in Waldorf Education with Helen Lubin

Saturday, March 26, 2019

Offering artistic tools and pedagogical considerations to guide daily speech activities: what, why how? We will explore the evolving relationship between movement and speech throughout the school years, as well as ways to further this in the classroom. Through speech, how do we gain insight into the changing relationship between outer and inner, world and self, in the journey of a child’s development?

Schedule: 9:30 am - 4:30 pm *for further support, individual sessions will be available on Saturday after workshop and on Sunday

Location: Red Barn Studio, Hungry Hollow Road, Chestnut Ridge, NY

Cost: $65-90 (sliding scale)
