Drumming is a long-established conduit for change. Found in most cultures throughout the world, drumming has been used in community gatherings for healing, music making, ceremony and ritual. Some of the health benefits of drumming include:
1. stress reduction
2. increase in serotonin production
3. mood elevation
4. strengthened immune system
5. significant increases in natural killer cells (the cells that seek out and destroy cancer and virally-infected cells).
The facilitated drum circle format is an opportunity for everyone — no matter their level of music training — to create community, enjoy these positive health benefits, and contribute their voice to an in-the-moment music making experience in a safe and supported environment.
The Drum Your Destiny workshop is a series of workshops where the content is connected, yet each 90 minute session is a complete experience on its own. Each person will leave with an action step aimed at their new future. This workshop will help you identify outdated beliefs, heal past hurts, and free yourself from oppressive emotions so that you can get in sync with your own voice, put the “umph” back into your life, and move from emotional isolation to communal joy. Utilizing the dynamic power of the drum and poignant writing exercises, this workshop will help you Be Seen, Get Heard, and Live Unapologetically!!
Each Workshop will include:
• 2 (or more) facilitated drum circles
• Workbook for guided writing exercises
• Delivery of themed content
• The creation of a supportive community setting
• Instrument rental, load-in, and load-out.
