DRUM ~ DANCE ~ CHILL (San Mateo)

Meets the first Friday evening of every month from 8 - 9:30pm at CHANGE Yoga Studio in downtown San Mateo. The first hour is spent as a drum circle, drumming, dancing, and/or just sitting and listening for those that prefer. The last 30 minutes is spent in silent, seated meditation. If you have a drum, or drums, please bring them, though if you don't have any, no worries, as there are usually ones to share. This is a very laid back, informal group of drummers, dancers, and meditators. No drumming, dancing, or meditation experience is necessary. All are welcome to attend. There is a $1 minimum donation which goes to CHANGE Yoga Studio (a non-profit organization) to help hold the space, which is collected at the studio.

To access the studio from 4th Ave. there is an alleyway called Ben Franklin Court, across the street from Starbucks. CHANGE Yoga Studio is at the very back of Ben Franklin Court. For those who are driving, there is also a parking lot behind the studio which can be accessed by turning into the driveway located between 4th and 3rd Ave. on the northbound side of El Camino.

    Tonight's session had a good urgency. I became excited! This set up a great meditation afterward, where I had thousands of artful meditations in my mind, consisting mainly of eyelids and colors.

    Hi Ben, this is my first time attending a drum circle. Is there a dress code? Do I need to bring anything other than a towel and water bottle (I don't have a drum)? What else should I be prepared for?

      Hi Prerna,

      No dress code. No worries on not having a drum. Sometimes there are extra for you to use if you like. Just come and relax, that is all that is needed. :)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
