Life is about rhythm. We vibrate, our hearts are pumping blood, we are a rhythm machine, that’s what we are.

ABOUT the TaKeTiNa® Rhythm Process (as founded by Reinhard Flatischler)

TaKeTiNa® is a unique rhythm and musical meditation process, and one of the most efficient self-development processes available today.

The process is used for activating human, musical and creative potential through rhythm, and is a path in which music-rhythm-movement is combined with personal evolution.

Profound rhythmic orientation can only be achieved by learning to alternate between synchronization and de-synchronization. Rigidity and control detract from that which is truly the essence of the rhythmic experience – a feeling of being supported, of vitality, of joy, and of inner peace. The TaKeTiNa® process purposely and harmoniously balances stabilization and destabilization. Participants alternate naturally between two states – “being in rhythm” and “being out of rhythm.” Each time one finds their way back to the basic pulse, they experience rhythm at a more profound and intense level. 


The TaKeTiNa® process allows you to 

* Practice presence and inner stillness

* Work creatively and effectively with chaotic phases

* Improve your performance by reducing your anxiety about making ‘mistakes’

* Practice entering a state of relaxation, effortlessness and flow

* Open and express your unique creativity

* Develop improvisational skills and rhythmic confidence

TaKeTiNa® requires no musical experience and invites participants to go at their own pace. As well as using the body and voice the workshop will also utilise small handheld percussion instruments. All these instruments will be supplied.



The work is open to any person interested in the transformative effects of rhythm, movement voice and meditation, as well as those interested in and curious about neuroscience and the effects of movement and music based meditation practices.

TaKeTiNa® sessions are open to all levels. No music or meditation experience is necessary, and participants are invited to go at their own pace, to enter, detach and to observe their own personal process from different perspectives.
