Saturday. November 19 7-9pm
I absolutely love Taketina. And with Soul Dance winding up in Warby, I thought it might be fun to introduce the community to this beautiful meditative, rhythm-based musical practice. Somehow it’s both deeply relaxing and energising – guided yet creative, body-based yet really stimulating for the brain. It’s exquisite to dance to. And it’s also pretty much impossible to describe. So, if you’re curious, come along and find out for yourself! My friend Justin Holland is a master at teaching it, and has kindly agreed to come out once a month to guide the process. He’s also an amazing musician and will be incorporating some of his playing into the sessions.

I wrote a little story about my first Taketina experience in this blog post.
Here’s a little more info from the Taketina website:
TaKeTiNa is a beautiful and relaxing process that includes learning rhythmic patterns, body percussion and coordinating stepping and clapping. What it leads to is a deep connection with life through rhythm. It is a practice that leads you to reclaim the moment and enter into a deep meditation.
TaKeTiNa is encountering rhythm in its direct essence. Using primal rhythmic movements and rhythm archetypes TaKeTiNa provides you with the most direct connection to this fundamental power of life.
