The lower system

The lower system is the basis of our vitality, home to our life forces, which are responsible for our health and for all upbuilding processes. It takes up impulses from the upper system and carries them out. Nothing is possible in the physical body without the support of the lower system. It is spoken of as the lower system even though its sphere of activity reaches from the head to the toes.

The lower system is our system of feeling. Feelings are subjective, have intuitive or will-like character, and are not based on thinking. Feeling-filled people are generally experienced as warm, sensuous, and courageous. The lower system as such knows no fear. It wishes to engage in life and that which lies in front of it. For this reason it also prefers to move forwards, instead of backwards. (Note that this does not apply to a person who suffers from trauma.)


B07_der_untere_Mensch_-_ein_Energieb_ndel_Thumbnail.jpgA course of seven videos on the upper and lower system in the human being and their effects on our body, our movement, and our self-consciousness.

Before beginning any course, please review the guidelines on the page How to use this site.

The course is public and currently free of charge.

In the handout you will find transcripts of the video segments. In addition, the handout contains the chapters

  • I am two
  • Spirit and body - two sides of the same coin
  • Consciously moving the ether

These basics are so important that we make them available for free.

You can simply look at the first five modules. We show you that you don't really have to do much to allow your body to pull you forwards or bring you back. You also see the application of this in eurythmy and gain an understanding how the sound gestures relate to the human being's inner forces and how they function.

In the last modules we go two steps further. We show how the astral body can play with the upper and lower system in the video "Curving around the room." Elementary functions of the I are shown in the video "Being in front - being behind." To gain access to these modules we ask you to buy the course for 0 Euro or a voluntary amount.
