Rhythm Meditation is for anyone wanting to develop
awareness and deepen understanding of rhythm. Immerse yourself in this form of moving, musical meditation where rhythm is the object of contemplation. People at all levels come together to transform
their relationship to music, to each other, and to life. No instrument required.
During a rhythm meditation, 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 translates naturally into an awareness not only of music, but also of learning and life. Wear comfortable clothes and bring an open mind. Yoga mats are available for your use.
Deborah Masterson, a certified advanced TaKeTiNa rhythm teacher, began to train with the founders, Reinhard and Cornelia Flatischler in 1998 and continues to do so. Her fascination with the mystery and power of rhythm was ignited when, in 1988, she attended a Samulnori (Korean folk drumming) concert. For many years, she concentrated on Korean percussion and dance, both in Honolulu and in Korea. More recently, her explorations have included West African dundun, Cuban and Congolese congas, dumbek, and frame drum. Rhythmfullcircle.com
