Relaxing Rhythms Drum Circle

2nd Thursdays

  • 15 US dollars
  • FAA at Studio C

Service Description

Our hour together is about enjoying rhythm as a way to relax and unwind. It is NOT about complicated rhythms and drum skills. Each session has a theme, such as gratitude, growth, or exploration. During the hour, we will generally learn and practice three or four rhythms together. We might start out with Dawn drumming, and everyone else listening as participants get comfortable. As a rhythm is introduced and you join in, you’ll often learn a bit about the global origin of the particular rhythm and instrument. Did you know each of us has at least two rhythms? You might add breathing or a bit of guided meditation to your drum journey, depending on the program. You’ll also learn about some of the percussion instruments available to use during the circle. In addition to a variety of drums, there are rattles, shakers, bells, sticks, and thunder tubes available for use. Some sessions include drum massage, body drumming, or found sounds. Sessions are an opportunity to “play” with the drums and other instruments. Remember, the goal of Relaxing Rhythms is to help you relax through rhythm! Sign up today and gift yourself the benefits of group drumming. Dawn Wrobel is a drum maker and drum circle facilitator certified in the Healing Rhythms (tm) program.
