Drumming helps to release tension, dispel stress and negative feelings, and restore energy. Its beat represents 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. A drumming circle is very inclusive in that all people have the innate ability to create rhythm and can participate. Each person is given a rhythmic “voice” in this healing practice as we become connected through an invisible energy while united in purpose and community.
Our circle leader, Therese Yonikus, is studying with Christine Stevens an international teacher, coach music therapist and drum circle facilitator. Therese is dedicated to expanding her knowledge of drumming and will bring new insights and a range of techniques to our monthly gatherings.
Beginners are welcome. A limited number of drums and rattles are available. Please bring your own as well!
April Drumming Circle
April brings us to our last drumming circle for this season. We would like to share a poem with you given by Christine Stevens, a fabulous teacher of drumming circles and all who participate in them. She gave this poem as a support guide for all of us drummers. We believe it is an inspiration to continue drumming on our own until our next community drumming begins.
You have a naturally born rhythmical spirit!
Since before you were born, you’ve been surrounded in rhythm.
As a child, you banged on pots and pans.
You explored the world of sound and rhythm daily.
The ability to be rhythmical comes from within.
There is a rhythmical spirit waiting to be rediscovered in you. Connect with the innate spirit of rhythm that inspires your soul to dance.
Awaken the rhythm in your heart: its waiting to be played. Create a rhythm of creativity and spirit in your life.
Share your rhythm!
$10 • Registration requested by noon on day of program.
Facilitated by Therese Yonikus
