Taketina Rhythm Process 3 Day Retreat

September 14 - September 16

For the first time in Australia, Pulse Rhythm will present a 3-day TaKeTiNa Rhythm Body and Voice residential retreat facilitated by

 Master TaKeTiNa teacher Tania Bosak and Accredited TaKeTiNa teacher Justin Holland.

The TaKeTiNa process forms the foundation of this retreat which will also include body & breath work, frame drum meditations and a Saturday evening meditation concert.

The workshop will also be framed by Don Miguel Ruiz’s, FIVE AGREEMENTS, which will invite a powerful code of conduct that can transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, acceptance and deep reflection.

TaKeTiNa is pure rhythm and meditation, a profoundly transformational and unique process.

It requires no musical experience and is an extremely playful and joyous way of entering into the archetypal foundations of rhythm that exist in all music. Complex poly-rhythms and cross-rhythms form the basis of the process as it utilises the body by stepping, clapping and singing to generate a complex and rich rhythmic choir which leads participants into states of relaxation, inner presence and awareness.

The process presents opportunities for fun, spontaneity, self-observation, musical expression, reflection and time to rest. This three-day residential format allows participants time to integrate that which has been stimulated and sink deeper into relaxation, thus expanding the possibilities of a deeper awareness of one’s musical and human potential.
