The passive concert - 2 of 2

After the introductory movement of the music. the teacher begins to read the text with natural intonations, giving, every utterance its real meaning. The students are mentally hypersensitive. Their physical energy is being transformed into mental energy, which makes them highly receptive. They are able to absorb much more than when they are physically active.

At the end of the concert (which should be timed perfectly to end at precisely the time the class is scheduled to end) the teacher exits. The students, however, can take an extra few minutes to yawn, stretch, and finally get up. The only guidelines laid down are that students leave the classroom alone, without talking to their classmates, in order to preserve the solemnity of the moment and to allow the text and music to reverberate for as long as possible inside them.
