For all ages and abilities.
Guided by Laurie Martin, an experienced, trained HealthRhythms Drum Circle facilitator we gather in a circle, starting with a Wellness Exercise to relax, settle into the space and feel our inner rhythms – our heartbeat, our breath, our circulation – feeling ourselves grounded on the earth, appreciating who and where we are. From there we move through a medically proven protocol using Rhythm as a healing and empowering strategy to improve our own health and well-being.
Each person in the circle benefits according to what they are experiencing and what their bodies and spirits are seeking. We let go of our thinking and create rhythms from the inside out. As the rhythms evolve, the group becomes entrained – “when we come together and drum, are hearts begin to beat as one!” – and there is a palpable sense of joy and well-being. This process takes an hour guided by the facilitator who tunes in to the individuals in the circle and offers them opportunities to lead and share what is moving them. In closing, we return to our inner rhythms and share a word or beat of how we are feeling as we get ready to head out into the world.
