What we're about
Please read this for further information. There is information about what we are about and an important requirement about your profile picture.
We meet and have drum circles at various locations in the SF Bay Area - mostly in the South Bay and Peninsula - that are not on a fixed schedule. Meetup.com will let you know via email when new events are planned and announced. We do everything in person, so if you don't live in the SF Bay Area, your request to join may be denied. Due to Covid-19, we are limited to outdoor locations only. Our circles are mostly free form with possibly some light facilitation and opportunities to learn new rhythms. We don't do meditation or other rituals. We are all about having fun.
All experience levels welcome. If you are a beginner, you will learn by listening, watching, and asking questions. Most of the drumming that we do, does not require training. We usually have extra percussion instruments to use if you don’t have your own. Some locations may be difficult or impossible for mobility impaired people.
Creating your meetup.com account and joining this group is free. You will only be asked to occasionally contribute a dollar to help with the meetup.com fee assessed to the organizer.
NOTICE: All new members will be REQUIRED to supply a picture that shows their face, centered and without a mask or sunglasses, in their profile for this group. A low resolution blurry picture or a full body picture where your face is tiny is not acceptable. Also unacceptable is a picture where your face is off-center and cropped when it shows up in the list of members. This is so we can learn names of our fellow members and so I can more easily manage who attends events. (When you join a group, the picture that is used for the group is the same one that is in your top level meetup.com profile. After joining, the picture in other groups and in your top level meetup.com profile can be different. Unfortunately, you have to use the meetup.com website, not the app, to change a profile picture for a group.
