This is the perfect opportunity to tune into your own rhythm (whether you think you have any or not) as we connect and co-create. Discover how freeing the drums can be! Welcoming to all levels of experience, especially beginner-beginners. Please bring a drum or sound-maker, or play one of ours.
In this special session we will:
- Deepen our mind-body connection through rhythm.
- Explore ancient rhythms from around the world, and make up some new ones in the moment.
- Give our immune system a boost, our brain a spark, and our mood a lift.
- Play loudly, freely, spaciously!
