Drumming Circle

The sound of drumming has the ability to put us in touch with our own natural rhythms, the rhythms of the earth, and also of those around us. Its beat can represent our heart as we become grounded yet taken to a place deep inside where we are keenly aware of our mind and body, and the connection between the two.

Facilitated by Sr. Lynn Schafer, OSF, and Therese Yonikus
