Voice, Body, Rhythm: A Full Weekend of Ta Ke Ti Na


Next Available: 21 Oct 11:00AM
6.0 hours

Description

TaKeTiNa Rhythm Process is a unique musical group process that combines, voice, movement and rhythm using the body as the primary instrument.

"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)

TaKeTiNa is a gentle group process that combines voice and movement. No previous musical experience needed.

Join us for a fun and engaging workshop with Certified TaKeTiNa Teacher John Anderson and esteemed local musician Ria Soemardjo.

About John

I've been playing music for 58 years.... since I was 10. What I love about TaKeTiNa, which I chanced upon 20 years ago (and have been studying intensively for 5) is how it brings together any group of people using the simplest method: the voice.... speaking rhythmic syllables (eg. "ta ke ti na"), then the feet stepping, then the hands clapping.... and finally the voice singing in response to the leader's calls. It's a graceful and flexible process in which deep integration of body-mind-spirit is possible. It's now my music of choice.... I like to call it "Bare bones Music".
