Abstract

Several authors have noted that one of Émile Jaques-Dalcroze’si aims was to dissolve the mind-body dualism, typical of Cartesianism. However, there has been little research on the spirit-body connection, as it appears in Jaques-Dalcroze’s writings. The purpose of this document analysis is to understand how a hermeneutic phenomenological model for spirituality in music education (Van der Merwe & Habron, 2015) can inform our understanding of spirituality in selected writings by Jaques-Dalcroze. In the adapted model holism, balance, aesthetic experience, and movement in time, space and with energy emerged as core concepts. We conclude with suggestions for how we might teach for spirituality in Dalcroze Eurhythmics contexts, based on the findings.
