WORKSHOPS Dance / Sound Journey
Taketina Rythm Process (Kula and Jordan Braver)
”TaKeTiNa is a method created in the 70's by the Austrian musician Reinhard Flatischler that uses rhythm as a tool to work the body, mind and senses. It is a collective, meditative and musical process for human development that transports us to an inner dimension where transformation and joy take place.
Taketina is a completely new way of learning, experiencing, and understand the connections among rhythm, music, and individual evolution. Taketina does not simply promote creativity and musicality; rather, creative-musical learning is closely tied to the growth of human qualities. Two basic abilities in particular are of importance both within music and in daily life: flexibility and connection. As these become an integral part of your being, you will find that rhythm will guide you to inner quiet, centeredness and aliveness”.
Trance Dance Ritual (Kula and Sofia + Live Musicians)
Trance Dance is a vehicle that means to heal from within, to explore and come face to face with with your feelings and emotions, to see your past creations and allow your movement to become the dance of inner meditation. Connecting with the self, we Dance to reinvent ourselves, we Dance to discard fears and move into creation of dreams, we Dance to celebrate LIFE!!!
Trance Dance is a unique blend of body movement, healing sounds, dynamic percussive rhythms, transformational breathing techniques and the innovative use of a blindfold or bandana - together stimulating a 'trance' state that promotes spiritual awakenings, mental clarity, physical stamina and emotional well-being.
Driven by unique musical soundtracks recorded specifically for this method of healing, Trance Dance takes participants on an 'inner journey' not limited to our normal perceptions of space/time. Ritual trance journeys have been a vital part of shamanic and eastern dance cultures for thousands of years. Our contemporary approach to Trance Dance brings together the richness of these ancient rituals with some startlingly effective modern techniques.
