The power of language goes beyond its ability to convey meaning. In the enjoyment of poetry we can experience that words are also color, gesture and movement. The sounding word is not a finished thing, but a dynamic world in the very act of becoming. Each time we speak, we can take part in this “becoming” and in the life of the Logos – the primal, cosmic word that underlies all existence.
Creative Speech is a discipline devoted to this approach to the spoken word. It allows our speaking to be inspired by the rhythms, images and music inherent in the word.
Introduced in the early 1900s by Rudolf Steiner in collaboration with Marie Steiner von-Sivers, Creative Speech has now found its way around the globe in the fields of performance, education and therapy. It is an inspiration to many who seek personal growth through an artistic approach to the spoken word.
