TaKeTiNa is one of the most effective musical learning processes of our time. This rhythmic work can be a form of meditation as well as a support for those in pain or psychotherapy, or both. "Rhythm for Evolution" is an evening filled with music and inspiring information. This presentation will show how the TaKeTiNa rhythm process can contribute to raising consciousness and helping to solve some of the complex situations we deal with in our present world. This multi-media lecture is embedded in an exciting drum performance with the world-renown musical couple, Reinhard and Cornelia Flatischler. You will get a direct, "hands on" experience of the possibilities inherent in the power of rhythm. You will see: you are deeply rhythmical.

An Intensive One-Day Rhythm Workshop at the SF Women's Building:

The TaKeTiNa process incorporates three different rhythms-in the feet, hands, and the voice-and guides participants into an experience that uncovers the body's innate rhythmic knowledge. The TaKeTiNa process is a way of integrating movement, rhythm, and voice, and, as a nonlinear process, allows participants to learn at their own pace. TaKeTiNa is an established curriculum used at music universities, health clinics, theater and drum schools and widely used in corporate work. In this one-day workshop, you will have the opportunity to discover how rhythm can increase your quality of life.

Reinhard Flatischler left the world of classical music, and through his travels and study of drum cultures, Flatischler synthesized a remarkable way of teaching rhythm and percussion called TaKeTiNa. He has applied these discoveries about rhythm's potent healing power in research on pain management and chronobiology. Cornelia Flatischler, wife of Reinhard Flatischler, is coleader, a master teacher of TaKeTiNa, and a member of MegaDrums. A gifted instructor and musician, she has taught at music universities and the Vienna Conservatory of Music.

Concert Tickets: $20; Workshop $150.
