Rhythm and Breath: The Science of Trance — A TaKeTiNa and Clarity Breathwork Weekend

I’m excited to announce that on May 12th and 13th I will be co-facilitating a TaKeTiNa and Clarity Breathwork with Mary Gaetjens, Natalie Word, and James Word.

This will be a weekend that will take all of us to higher states of consciousness and help us energetically integrate that consciousness into our daily lives. This is a wonderful opportunity to be in community with people who are focused on growth, balance and alignment in these evolutionary times. This weekend will create healing on many levels.

James Word is the first TaKeTiNa teacher in the U.S. to be trained at a senior level. Mary Gaetjens is an experienced and gifted Clarity Breathwork Practitioner and Natalie Word is currently training in TaKeTiNa and will be playing the surdo (a large bass drum) during the TaKeTiNa journeys.

Natalie and James have been coming regularly to the Breathwork Circles Mary and I have been holding each month. Last summer we organized a TaKeTiNa journey right before a breathing session and we were blown away at what a powerful experience it was. That’s when we came up with the idea of a longer workshop.

Clarity Breathwork is a practice of circular, connected breathing that raises the vibration of the body and energy field, thus releasing stress, physical tension, trauma and mental blocks. Breathing is a safe and effective method of creating deep healing in your life.

TaKeTiNa was founded by Reinhard Flatischler in 1970 and is group process for discovering your natural rhythm. TaKeTiNa has many emotional and physical benefits, including integrating both side of the brain. For more on TaKeTiNa check out this short video:

The Workshop will be held in Berkeley, close to Solano Avenue. Each day we plan to do two Clarity Breathwork Sessions and two TaKeTiNa Journeys. No previous experience required. Call 510-601-9632 for more information and directions.

  1. Hi Jeri,

    I was there for that combo session. The TaKeTiNa with the Clarity Breathwork was powerful. A whole weekend sounds amazing!

  2. HI Jeri,

    I’m very much looking forward to this. We have certainly experienced the powerful synergy of TaKeTiNa + Breathwork.

    This past weekend, I just learned that the connection goes even deeper: After a conversation with the founder of TaKeTiNa (Reinhard Flatischler), he said that his initial inspiration for discovering the TaKeTiNa syllables came from his own practice of pranayama! Wow… so the two works are deeply connected. No wonder we have experienced such tremendous effects. 😉

    The connection goes even deeper: During a recent conversation I had with the founder of TaKeTiNa, Reinhard Flatischler, he said that the initial inspiration for discovering the TaKeTiNa syllables (the syllables used with the rhythmic voice) came from his own early practices of pranayama. Wow. It’s no wonder the combination has been so effective.
