Let's Drum Together.

“Rhythm is a means of organizing sound into formulas to harmonize the mind and body.” - Layne Redmond, When the Drummers Were Women 

Drum Circles provide an opportunity for participants to feel connected with others and gain a sense of interpersonal support! A drum circle provides an opportunity to connect with your own spirit at a deeper level. Group drumming alleviates self-centeredness, isolation and alienation. There are great benefits to feeling connected to others, especially those in similar situations. Current research now shows the therapeutic effects of drumming techniques. Research indicates that drumming accelerates physical healing, boosts the immune system. In addition, specific studies conducted by professionals in the fields of music therapy and mental health show us that drumming: reduces tension, anxiety and stress; helps control chronic pain; boosts the immune system and releases negative feelings, blockages and emotional trauma.
