TaKe TiNa: A Movement Meditation Rhythm Workshop

12:00 to 3:00pm

Cost: $35
Early Bird Special $30! (through September 30)

Instructor: Elaine Fong

Are you so lost in busy-ness that you feel like a human-doing instead of a human-being?

TaKeTiNa is a powerful practice that can rapidly quiet the chatter in your head and bring you into connection with your inner core. Through vocalization, clapping, and stepping, you are guided into three separate rhythmic layers which directly effect your nervous system and bring a more clear and direct experience of the world.

It is a new way of learning and understanding rhythm through a group process~ perfect for beginners and professional musicians alike! Come spend an afternoon in our TaKeTiNa rhythm circle accessing your body's innate rhythmic knowledge.

What does Taketina "look like"?
From the perspective of an outside observer, a TaKeTiNa workshop looks like a group of people standing in one large circle, with the two leaders in the center guiding the group into stepping, chanting and clapping rhythm patterns. After a time the chant turns into a call-and-response singing. Occasionally someone may spontaneously leave the pattern and move individually inside the circle, or even lie quietly on the floor, only to rejoin the movement later. Eventually the entire group lies down as the movement and sound fades, for reflection or meditation. There is a time of sharing within the group.

For the participant, however, much more is taking place on inner dimensions. The opportunity for new, communal learning through a group energy field is created by the experience of rhythmic movement and chant. The body, brain and nervous system are brought to a place of profound relaxation and balance, and the neuromuscular system is rewired for greater health and perception. Archetypal rhythms from nature and the body inspire creativity and new ways of being. No less than one's lifelong patterns and perspectives of learning are up for review. Unconscious patterns that limit growth can be processed and dissolved. For musicians and especially drummers, it is a powerful way to develop a deeper understanding of multiple simultaneous rhythms.
