Sun Surf and Drumming Classes at Beautiful Nantasket Beach
Dust off that Djembe, frame drum, or Native American drum and learn how to drum. Drumming is very healing for women, come and relax by the ocean and learn how to drum. The Benefits of Drumming The word rhythm in Greek means to flow. Drumming is a path of healing that guides us into experiencing the flow of our mind and emotions so we may grow to experience more about our soul. Drumming gives us an experience where we can be free to connect with ourselves and others, in order to release, restore and heal. It is a universal language where all people can be a part, free from words and concepts so we can experience life with an open heart. Drumming supports individuals, families and communities during times of joy, sadness and change. As we drum together the rhythm can bring us closer to one another with respect and courage as we move towards healing wounds and restoring hope. Therapeutic Effects Current research now shows the therapeutic effects of drumming techniques. Research indicates that drumming accelerates physical healing, boosts the immune system. In addition specific studies conducted by professionals in the fields of music therapy and mental health show us that drumming: Reduces tension, anxiety and stress Helps control chronic pain Boosts the immune system Releases negative feelings, blockages and emotional trauma In a specific study conducted by Barry Bittman, MD, group drumming actually increases cancer-killing cells, which help the body combat cancer as well as many other viruses. Life Quality Effects Drumming induces deep relaxation, lowers blood pressure, produces feelings of well-being, a release of emotional trauma and reduces stress. Stress, according to current medical research, contributes to nearly all diseases and is a primary cause of such life-threatening illnesses as heart attacks, strokes and immune system breakdowns. Chronic pain, which many of our veterans experience, has a progressively draining effect on the quality of life. Research suggests that drumming serves as a distraction from pain and grief. Specifically, drumming promotes the production of endorphins and endogenous opiates, the bodies own morphine-like pain killers, and can thereby help to control pain. Community Effects Drum Circles also provide an opportunity for participants to feel connected with others and gain a sense of interpersonal support. A drum circle provides an opportunity to connect with your own spirit at a deeper level. Group drumming alleviates self-centeredness, isolation and alienation. There are great benefits to feeling connected to others, especially those in similar situations. Specific studies show: Creates a sense of connectedness with self and others Helps us experience being in resonance with the natural rhythms of life Provides a medium for individual self-realization SUMMER SPECIAL series with a guest drum instructor THIS WEEK! If you are new to drumming or have experience this is a nice way to get back in the grove. Every Thursday night for 4 weeks we will offer lessons on beautiful Nantasket Beach. Come drum in the sunset! Comments from the last years drumming....... "Hull is worth the trip from wherever you are. " "The sunset was beautiful, the sound of the ocean, the breeze on your face, the view of water all around. So healing. I feel like the atmosphere was perfect for sharing ideas and dreams and making them come true. How about that for a Friday night! Anything is possible!!! " C Don't have a drum?
