We are happy to welcome back for a third consecutive year, a Still Meadow sponsored event, Burning of the Roots Ceremony. This year’s ceremony will once again be facilitated by Danny Pharr. This is a wonderful event to let go of thoughts, emotions, and feelings that are holding you down so you can spring freely into the new year. We’d love to have you here in community with us.
TaKeTiNa is a unique rhythm process where participants are guided into layers of rhythm: voice, steps and claps. As the layers of rhythm are created, there can be moments of utter stillness followed by intense moments of chaos! Yet, within the chaos, there is the opportunity to “fall out” of rhythm only to give you a great chance to “fall” into rhythm. Which can become an incredible metaphor for life = do we “push”, or can we merely “allow”?
You are invited to experience Taketina, one of the most efficient learning musical potential through rhythm methods available today. It is a process for activating human and musical potential through rhythm.
TaKeTiNa trainings have been held here for over 13 years. We’ve seen cycles of students come and go and have shared wonderful moments with many of them. Each 4 year training cycle concludes with a series of certification workshops. Students in the TaKeTiNa training have an opportunity to gain certification as a teacher in the TaKeTiNa rhythym process, developed by Reinhard Flatischler. Students will demonstrate their skills by each leading a TaKeTiNa journey. These powerful workshops are free and open to the public.
When – Beginning Aug. 8 – 15, sixteen TaKeTiNa students will be seeking certification, so there will be 16 workshops. There is a morning workshop from 10:30 am – 1:00 pm, and an afternoon workshop from 4:00 – 6:30 pm. You are welcome to attend as many certification workshops as you wish. We are offering a lunch option as well for those interested. Lunch will be served from 1:30 – 2:15 and is $16, paid directly to Still Meadow.
All other inquiries or to reserve your spot in one of the sessions please email Elaine Fong at email@example.com

We are SUPER excited to let people know that Still Meadow has been featured in the latest issue of Conscious Dancer magazine. Here is the link to their site ConsciousDancer.com They have a handy ezine reader. If you punch it up to full screen you can read the article. Flip to page 13 where the article, Mathemagical Dance floors, begins and continue to page 14 where it talks of Still Meadow and how architect, Richard Stein, designed the sanctuary space based on the mathematical equations of the Golden Mean. We are happy to be featured in this awesome magazine as one of our goals, when we installed the new bamboo floor, was to attract more movement arts groups both locally and from afar. Because of this we have also decided to place an add in this beautiful publication.
