Come celebrate the beginning of summer while discovering a powerful tool for empowerment and well-being! Recreational drumming is not about the music. It’s about having fun, reducing stress, inspiring self-expression, creating community and celebrating life! It’s an opportunity to get out of your head and into rhythm with your heart as you move your body.
You don’t have to be musical or be able to keep a beat to enjoy the recreational and health benefits of drumming. Yet many first time drummers discover their inner music maker as part of the experience.
- Facilitated group drum circle with a variety of percussion instruments from small hand shakers to floor drums – there will be something for everybody.
- Guided reflection on creating a summer rhythm of recreation and renewal
- Drinks and appetizers
In addition to being a whole lot of fun, emerging research indicates group drumming has multiple health benefits, including:
- Reduced depression, anger, interpersonal problems, burnout
- Improved school/work performance, self-esteem, behavior toward others
The summer solstice announces the beginning of summer. The sun (sol) appears to stand still (stice) on this longest day of the year—creating an ideal opportunity to spend the last few hours of daylight outside, celebrating life and setting intentions for the summer season.
