All skill levels welcome. We meet at least once a month; currently the 3rd Wednesday of the month at Yoga Pathways in Palmer Lake (or 3rd Monday at Limbach Park in Monument during the summer) unless noted. Bring any percussion instrument; some will be available to play.
“The Art and Heart of Drum Circles”
A drum circle is different from a drum class or a performance. There is no teacher, rehearsal, performance or audience. It is an inclusive experience where spontaneity thrives. As people unite to play in a common pulse, each person’s individualist elemental to the character of the group.
Rhythm is universal and provides the foundation that makes drum circles a multicultural tool for unity among people from all over the world. Drumming makes people aware of the common pulse that unites humanity.
Drum circles are about far more than drumming. Two key elements come together in all drum circle experiences: the music (art) and the emotions (heart). The art is created spontaneously as the song of the drummers emerges from the improvised rhythms. At the heart of drumming is social connection, creative freedom, and emotional transformation.
