Everything is in motion, and so is TaKeTiNa. This requires constant updates. We are currently revising the books and translating them into English. Therefore certain books might not be available for some time. We will keep you up to date about the new editions here.
TaKeTiNa: The Healing Power of Primal Rhythmic Movements
Published November 2012, Irisiana, plus DVD, in German
In November 2012, Reinhard Flatischler’s new German language book, TaKeTiNa: The Healing Power of Primal Rhythmic Movements, was released by the publisher Irisiana (a subsidiary of Random House). Flatischler’s focus in this, his fourth book, is on realising the potential of the pedagogical principles of the TaKeTiNa rhythm process to serve as both a practical and a theoretical foundation for anyone interested in learning about rhythm and music.
Included with the book is a DVD that provides you with the opportunity to experience an intense encounter with rhythm as well as to gain new perspective on central themes of our lives.
The DVD contains rhythm journeys in which you can actively participate. Reinhard Flatischler, together with the Blue Capricorn film production company of Munich, produced the video at the TaKeTiNa Institute in Vienna with the participation of eight TaKeTiNa teachers. The videos invite you to be a part of the group on the screen. You need no previous knowledge or skills to participate.
