WHAT IS TAKETINA ?
Ta Ke Ti Na is a holistic group learning process and a profoundly new way of experiencing and understanding rhythm.
In Ta Ke Ti Na music, movement, communication,
neurological research and chaos theory are integrated to create a new process for learning and transformation.
Learning with the Ta Ke Ti Na process develops inner presence, creativity, musicality and opens an awareness of our individual patterns, which inhibit our lives and relationships.
Ta Ke Ti Na leads participants to their innate rhythmic knowledge and connects us to the forgotten power of rhythm in nature and within us.
As a deeply relaxing and meditative process, TaKeTiNa requires no musical experience and invites participants to go at their own pace.
Body as Instrument
Learning through the body is direct and requires no
technical skills. Rhythms are layered into the body through stepping, clapping and the voice.
Rhythm becomes a mirror for our personal process and teaching us how to enter our true authentic nature.
Where is Ta Ke Ti Na being used?
Established for more than 40 years, Ta Ke Ti Na is officially part of the curriculum at music conservatoriums located in Hamburg, Zurich and most recently at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna. It is utilised in pain management and various therapy settings including prisons, drug rehabilitation programs, theatre, dance companies and corporate training programs.
