Testimonials

Entering timelessness... Wow, what a feeling, to have the freedom to lay down and jump around. Thanks for the tangible freedom and the wisdom of chaos!

I feel so enriched by Taketina! Sinking into the interaction between concentration and relaxation was quite rewarding.

This workshop really was an incredible experience with all imaginable hights and profundities. It was awesome to witness how joyful people became and how intimate the atmosphere unfolded in this workshop. Thank you so much!

If old Kant had only known TaKeTiNa®…

 

…then the brave old philosopher might have been saved many a night’s work and might possibly have never written his “Critique of Pure Reason”. Instead of incessantly reflecting on how to solve the many problems we humans keep on causing with our limited understanding, dear old Immanuel might have seen from TaKeTiNa® that it can sometimes be more helpful to give up conscious control instead of trying to increase it.

But old Kant would probably have begun to despair during the first exercises. Thus, not much would have been won by him simply knowing about TaKeTiNa®. He would have had needed you, dear Reinhard and Cornelia, or one of the other competent teachers of this art – someone who would have been able to invite him, to encourage him and to inspire him to make the wonderful experience that life can only succeed when our controlling mind – at least sometimes – “gives up” and simply surrenders to what is in us as well as what is going on with us and around us.

TaKeTiNa starts with a gentle gong and ends with an intense drum beat for the soul. TaKeTiNa is powerful. It is a method that triggers systemic processes, a method that enables teams to experience themselves as teams and allows them to obtain new impulses for organisational action under the aspects of “experiencing limits” and “transcending limits.

TaKeTiNa definitely provides healing, especially for people suffering from psychosomatic illnesses. In the pain therapy project held in Göppingen, Germany, TaKeTiNa helped our patients greatly. It enabled them to reduce their pain medication and improved their methods of dealing with pain.

Reinhard Flatischler warmly invites you to travel with him on a journey to find and experiment with our inherent, deep inner rhythms. TaKeTiNa can bring very different people together whether they have a sense of rhythm or not as it’s a method for connecting with their energies to release the fire within.

TaKeTiNa is a work of art and its creator Reinhard Flatischler is a unique artist. Those with eyes and minds that are open enough to experience what TaKeTiNa can do recognise that TaKeTiNa is the result of a creative innovation process that in itself is the actual work of art.

Der Taketina-Prozess hat mein Leben sehr bereichert. Die Freude am Spielen wird mit schnellen Erfolgserlebnissen verbunden. TaKeTiNa ist eine faszinierende Methode, die auf einer enormen Lebenserfahrung beruht.

 

Prof. Dr. Rolf Verres

TaKeTiNa is able to generate repeatedly and predictably ideal states for the nervous system and for the body’s many biorhythms – this has been proven by the research studies I am involved in as a physician.
