rhythm circles

The trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.
–Erica Jong

 I am a certified Advanced Teacher of the TaKeTiNa Rhythm Process with 20 years experience. I am happy to share this work with your group of five or more participants. Email me!


Immerse yourself in this form of moving, musical exploration. Develop your awareness and deepen your understanding of rhythm in its many forms. You don’t need to play an instrument. People from all paths come together to transform their relationship to music, to each other, and to life. Bring your curiosity!

2participantsPixIn a  two-hour rhythm circle, we vocalize, step, and clap simultaneously. Gently held and supported by the group, we weave different rhythms on several levels.
Our experience of repeatedly falling into chaos and then re-emerging into a higher level of organization leads us to an awareness not only of music, but also of learning and life. It’s an opportunity for us –together– to explore the power of rhythm to instruct, challenge, and heal.
