This meet up group is inactive at this time, and I have invited all to join "Drum Circles 4 All Seasons in East Valley" ! Since I had accepted the invitation to keep this group going, I still had MY original meet up group to manage, and doing 2 with the exact same info is, well, :), let's just say redundant and too time consuming! So as of June 20, 2016, I am inviting all to join my original meet up group ...getting to know each other by drumming together for wellness, fun, and so much more!
All about EXPRESSION, NOT EXPERIENCE! Check out my website at www.drumcircles4allseasons.com to see event information/registration, and more photos, it will give you an idea of the variety of drumming offered, and for what ages, etc.
I have Remo Versa drums/percussion that I bring to the drum circles, but if you have a drum,or your own percussion, please bring it, as we LOVE the variety, and there are those who do NOT have drums, and register for the use of them.
Most of these drum circles/sessions are based on Remo's (remo.com) evidence-based research protocol, "HealthRHYTHMS". I am SusyJeanne Manning, a trained HealthRHYTHMS drum circle facilitator, and love what I do! I have seen such wonderful changes in people, as they release the tension in their bodies, recognize their pulse, and discover their personal rhythm. It is such a great way to build a sense of community, to release stress, enhance creativity, improve mood, and so much more! I am so thankful for people like Andrew Ecker, Darcy Andean, and Frank Thompson who introduced me to HealthRHYTHMS, and to Jason, Kristeen, and Raye, who have mentored me into a "state of happiness", by showing how awesome and easy improvisational drumming is, as they have done for so many others. Let's continue their work, shall we? "Ubuntu!"
Come on, let's get drumming! Go join "Drum Circles 4 All Seasons in East Valley", and stay in touch with our drumming! SusyJeanne Manning, trained HR drum circle facilitator. You can email me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
