Yes, I have a drum, okay several.
For the sheer joy of it!
For the love of the drum, and the joy of being with kindred spirits in the drummers and fire spinners.
What we strive for.... From http://blog.x8drums.com/2014/01/finding-yourself-in-drum-circle.html FINDING YOURSELF IN A DRUM CIRCLE A creative force lives within any drummer; it is pragmatic, yet, defies the rules of structure. This natural inclination for rhythm is alive in our heartbeats & in the cycles of nature, the planet & the daily ticking of the clock. Drum circles are a true example of how easy it is learn more about ourselves thru community drumming, bringing methods of mindfulness within a group setting. It is this stillness within sound that can create powerful insights for personal development. Drum circles invite drummers to discover their own style of rhythm, interweaving it into the bigger mix of sound while allowing moments of introspection & collective learning. Drumming actively stimulates various areas of the brain while reducing stress & anxiety. The process of drumming with others leads to a higher regard & knowledge of our own thoughts, beliefs & desires.
