Join one of our sound and music offerings (no experience necessary!) to feel rejuvenated, reduce stress, and connect with others. These participant-centered classes are offered by knowledgeable instructors with backgrounds in expressive therapy, education, and Drum Circle leadership. Participants often note a feeling of renewal, vigor, excitement, and calm. In addition, some classes offer space to connect with others and build relationships within the community.
COLLECTIVE DRUMMING EVENTS
Try an expressive drumming class to de-stress, have fun, or to try something new. Collective drumming connects a roomful of people into the present moment. This ‘no experience necessary class’ can be a great way to reduces stress, create community, and increase energy. Please bring a drum or other hand instruments. A small number of instruments will be available to experiment with.
SOUND MEDITATION AND RELAXATION
Your only task here is to be comfortable. Blankets, pillows and comfortable mats are provided, but feel free to bring your own. Johns sound offerings are influenced by his study of various traditions and dynamic education. A gently guided relaxation experience will be followed by the sounds of crystal singing bowls, gongs and the sounds of other instruments. The evocative nature of these sounds can support a person’s movement through emotions and also deepen awareness. We may explore singing, mantra and other forms of sound to support centeredness, clarity in various aspects of life, and stress reduction.
