Why Should You Drum?
Did you know that the first sound any of us heard was the beating of a drum -- our mother's heartbeat?
That's why the rhythm of the drum always brings us back home.
The drum is the oldest instrument in the world and has been used for centuries in so many aspects of life: celebration, rituals, connection, communication. Drumming lights up the whole brain and its vibration creates new neural pathways. It connects the left and right hemispheres of our brain, moving us out of anxiety, trauma and PTSD, and into peace.
When we drum together, our minds, bodies, and spirits benefit -- feelings of calm, deep relaxation, increased intuition and clarity, deeper spiritual connection, heightened creativity, the easing of chronic pain, and a boost to the immune system!
My first drumming experience took away my anxiety in a week, and the peace stayed with me for months afterwards. I felt light and free. The drum built a community in a matter of days. No matter what was happening in our lives, the drum connected us all without saying a word. Everybody belonged. Everybody mattered.
I knew I had to share this amazing healing with others, and since I started, I have yet to meet a human being who cannot keep a steady beat.
The beat is what connects us all.
The beat is Change in Motion!
Drumming has long been a community building activity, whether used in ritual, song and dance, or participating in a live session provides a great sense of belonging. When we share rhythms, we open our hearts and minds to connecting both with ourselves and others. Drumming moves us forward so we can break free from fear, anxiety and feeling self-conscious.
Drumming together is both healthy and FUN for everyone! Group drumming brings people together in a way that no other activity can. No words are needed, just a willingness to try something new. I come to you and provide the drums. Great for all groups -- ladies' nights and retreats, private parties, family gatherings, and more. Recreational drumming brings people closer together, breaks communication barriers, and helps us let go of our fears, frustrations, and stress.

Daria's energy was contagious. Our staff really felt connected and unified after drumming together. It was so nice to see them let go, be silly and come out of their shells. Thanks so much Daria!
