Drum Circle is a place for a person to express themselves through rhythm.
There are many types of Drum Circles, the hippie thunder drum circles, the
ethno specific, meditation, healing, spiritual, beginners, intermediate, or
my favorite the FACILITATED DRUM CIRCLE ! Hopefully all of the above mentioned
Drum Circles invite the diverse individuals from today's society from the
city, beach, urban, and suburban to the furthest country we could imagine!
Group rhythm making evolves from the earliest times of man or woman, when
we couldn't communicate verbally we grunted or banged something as a form
of shared expression. That is a Drum Circle! When we join together in UNITY
to express ourselves through another voice. Sometimes individuals need to
let their voice be head, like creating art, playing drums, shakers, bells,
etc. offers a therapeutic tool to every individual.
With the proper Facilitator, drum circles become a place for the individual
and the group to experience rhythmical music. Rhythm is inside us all, from
the first music we made with our mothers in the womb, our hearts beating in
and out of rhythm 'til it became our own. Drumming excites the youngest to
the old, I have yet to meet a person unwilling to try the drum.
