Drum Circles
 
LOCATIONS
Waynesville

Drumming circles are springing up in communities all across America, and for good reason: drumming is a fun community gathering, it reduces stress & anger, boosts the immune system, and induces pleasure and relaxation in all the participants.

"Drumming is innate within us because of our own inner rhythms - our heartbeats, our breathing, our brain waves", says psychotherapist Robert Lawrence Friedman, author of The Healing Power of the Drum. "The drumbeat can help people express unarticulated emotions and reach deep levels of relaxation. It also frees the spirit, and I'm a believer in the power of play to heal."

Maggie and I love attending our local Waynesville Community Drum Circle, which meets every month at various "drum friendly" locations. Young & old alike attend these sessions, and Alan usually wears his sacred mask, straps on his dancing bells, and gets folks in the mood to drum & dance together. If you would like to experience one of our local drum circles, then check this webpage for the next scheduled sessions.

But, by all means, check out a drum circle in your own community or start one yourself. (Just remember to please find a "drum friendly" location so you don't disturb your neighbors!)
