DRUM ~ DANCE ~ CHILL (San Mateo)

Meets Friday evening from 8 - 9:30pm at CHANGE Yoga Studio in downtown San Mateo. The first hour will be spent as a drum circle, drumming, dancing, and/or just sitting and listening for those that prefer. The last 30 minutes will be 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.

      Hi Lisa. Just want to be clear that the gathering on the first Friday of each month is going to be a seated meditation practice followed by discussion... not a drum circle. If you are interested in attending the drum circle event the next one is scheduled for Friday Feb. 21st in Palo Alto and repeats on the 3rd Friday of each month. All of the info can be found on the Drum~Dance~Chill calendar. Thanks!

    Ben, I will miss the amazing guidance you have brought to this drum circle. Though I only discovered if a few months ago I've really enjoyed the community you have created. I know other members will be leading new exploratory groups and events but I wanted to acknowledge that I've loved each experience I've had so far in your group and look forward to how things evolve this year. Hope you will be able to return to drumming again soon!
