Community Drum Circle

Rhythm is what gives form to the boundless spirit and energy of all that is within and beyond our human experience. From the movment of celestial bodies, to the changing seasons, the repeating cycles within nature and the beating heart of each one of us. Rhythm is a common thread that runs through everything, down to the smallest atoms that are vibrating with the beat of creation. The drum, being far more than merly an instrument is a tool that is simple and accessible to anyone who approaches . the drum acts as a point of contact between the rhythm within and the universal rhythm. Through the drum we can connect with our deeper, primal self while at the same time connecting with others drumming around around us. As our rhythms synchronize with one another we create something that is much bigger and more powerful than any one of its individual parts. The drum circle becomes a deep and meaningful, radical act of community. Through the beating drum self becomes integrated with all that is outside of self. At the very least it’s just fun to beat on a drum. $10 Pre-Registration Required
