Voice, Body, Rhythm: TaKeTiNa Rhythm Process Workshop Series | The Michael Centre | Thursday, 24. October 2019

TaKeTiNa is a transformational group process, working with the powerful tools of poly-rhythm, voice, movement, and somatic awareness. Sometimes referred to as the Yoga of Rhythm, TaKeTiNa invites participants into a state of profound stillness, awareness, joy, and connection.
Facilitated by certified TaKeTiNa teacher Justin Holland, this workshop series is being offered by donation and is a practice group for his senior training he is currently undertaking with the founder of TaKeTiNa, Reinhard Flatischler in Vienna. While sessions can be attended individually, it is beneficial to attend more than one session.
No musical experience is necessary and participants are invited to journey at their own pace within this safely held and dynamic group process. Participation in TaKeTiNa leads to a perceptive state which can be described as ‘simultaneous awareness’. Poly-rhythm has been used for millennia among all cultures as a tool for healing, celebrating, and evolving our true nature. TaKeTiNa is used today in diverse fields as music education, therapy, meditation, peak performance, and personal growth.

"Rhythm is one of the most ancient and efficient ways to influence and develop human consciousness. In our globally-networked and technologically-focussed world, human beings often lose touch with their own internal rhythms, making them feel displaced and de-synchronized. TaKeTiNa allows them to reconnect with the healing powers of rhythm and primordial motion. Social, mental, creative, spiritual and of course musical faculties are reawakened and developed with the practice of TaKeTiNa."
- Reinhard Flatischler (Founder of the TaKeTiNa Process)
