Rhythm, Music & Meditation Workshop | TaKeTiNa

31 March – 1:30pm to 3:30pm

What does it mean to be in flow or in the zone? And how can we access this optimal state with maximum relaxation and minimal tension or stress?

WELCOME to an afternoon of immersion into rhythm, music and meditation. In this afternoon taster of TaKeTiNa, you’re invited to experience this unique rhythm, body, voice and meditation practice, normally done as part of a larger 3 day immersion.
NO music or meditation experience is necessary. Just bring along your voice and curiosity!

What is Taketina?

TaKeTiNa is a unique, holistic, playful and transformational way of experiencing and understanding rhythm, leading participants into a deeply relaxed and meditative state.

Using the body as the instrument, participants are guided at three simultaneous rhythmic levels, through stepping, clapping and the voice.

The rhythmic process becomes a mirror for our personal process and allows us to access states of relaxation, inner presence and awareness; choose our desired learning pace; and explore the space between tension and relaxation, stillness and movement, inner and outer worlds.

“The TaKeTiNa process is not simply a method of learning music or rhythm; it always involves learning more about yourself and others as well. Everything that is hindering our life shows up in this process as a rhythmic problem which can be transformed by the learning process that unfolds in TaKeTiNa.”

~ Reinhard Flatischler – composer, founder of TaKeTiNa


In the realm of music and in daily life, Taketina can help you to:

  • Access deep states of relaxation, spaciousness and stillness
  • Develop multi-layered perception
  • Experience profound states of inner presence
  • Connect to yourself and those around
  • Quieten the nervous system
  • Bring awareness and curiosity to habitual response patterns
  • Put aside any anxiety about ‘getting it right’
  • Explore chaos patterns, in rhythm and in everyday life, and our responses to such challenges
  • Find your personal learning pace and engage at your desired level of simplicity or complexity
  • Stay in flow
