Description:
"Drumming may be the oldest form of active meditation known to humanity."

Drumming in community is the most ancient and powerful portal for ritual, healing, celebration and deep concentration. It is a universal language enjoyed by people of all cultures since the beginning of time.

Mounting scientific evidence shows how "rhythmic entrainment" boosts immunity, induces the relaxation response, enhances mood and elicits a state of deep calm and centering through simple energy release and community connection.

IN THIS WORKSHOP:

We will experience a guided rhythm and meditation adventure along the continuum of sound and silence, rhythm and stillness, self and other.

We will relax deeply, find the rhythm of our breath and heartbeat, and then find it together in a group song.

This is a great workshop for anyone who is curious about exploring multidisciplinary and creative inroads to the experience of meditation.

Everyone can drum. Everyone has rhythm. No experience necessary.

*All drums and hand percussion will be provided, though participants are more than welcome to bring their own instruments.

*Space is limited so please register ahead of time.
