Human beings have an insatiable desire to reach out and create links with the world – through sensing, through the body. And the interplay between hand and spirit has always been a central part of the unique ideology of the folk high school.
In this volume of Helle Winther explores the pedagogy of the body, and three narratives show how today’s folk high schools work with bodily learning.
