Pulse Rhythm Events presents 


The Five Agreements

- an approach to Self Mastery through rhythm and meditation

 A 3 Day TaKeTiNa Rhythm Residential Retreat

14th 15th & 16th September 2018  MELBOURNE 

with Master TaKeTiNa teacher Tania Bosak

co-leader certified TakeTiNa teacher Justin Holland


“By practicing the Five Agreements, what you are really doing is respecting everything in creation. You are respecting your dream; you are respecting everybody else’s dream. If you use these tools, your effort is really for everyone, because your joy, your happiness, your peace, and your heaven are contagious. When you are happy, the people around you are happy too, and it inspires them to change their own world.” – Don Miguel Ruiz 

For the first time in Australia, Pulse Rhythm is offering an opportunity for deep rest, rejuvenation and personal growth in the form of a 3-day TaKeTiNa Rhythm Body and Voice residential retreat. The TaKeTiNa process will be the foundation of this retreat which will also include body, breath work, frame drum meditations and a Saturday evening meditation concert.

The workshop will also be framed by Don Miguel Ruiz’s, FIVE AGREEMENTS, which will invite a powerful code of conduct that can transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, acceptance and deep reflection.

This retreat will be held at Maitripa Contemplative Centre a short distance from Healesville, in the beautiful Yarra Ranges just 90 minutes from Melbourne.

The centre is nestled on 50 acres surrounded by State Forests, allowing expansive views, spaciousness, and opportunities for reflection.

Accommodation will be single or twin room with shared toilet and shower facilities, (single rooms will be allocated on a "first to book" basis).

Vegetarian meals will be provided, participants are asked to help with cleaning up duties at meal times. 

No TaKeTiNa or music experience is necessary.

All welcome. Limited places

TaKeTiNa is pure rhythm and meditation, a profoundly transformational and unique process.

It requires no musical experience and is an extremely playful and joyous way of entering into the archetypal foundations of rhythms that exist in all music. Complex poly-rhythms and cross-rhythms form the basis of the process as it utilizes the body by stepping, clapping and singing to generate a complex and rich rhythmic choir which leads participants into states of relaxation, inner presence and awareness.

The process presents opportunities for fun, spontaneity, self-observation, musical expression, reflection and time to rest. This three-day format allows participants time to integrate that which has been stimulated and sink deeper into relaxation, thus expanding the possibilities of a deeper awareness of one's musical and human potential.
