(Note: This workshop is mostly recommended for grown-ups.)

Mokale is a fun, magical journey into a world of rhythm, movement and song. The Mokale (mo"kuh-lay") circle contains overlapping waves of rhythm, chanting, singing, clapping and stepping. Each participant learns to embody (receive and carry) multiple rhythms that pulse through his/her body and continue around the circle. This poly-rhythm experience is a fun way to develop awareness, insight and extraordinary rhythm skills.

  • Exhilarating.
  • Fiercely challenging and well worth it.
  • The most valuable musical training I've had.
  • A profound healing experience.
