Full Description

Drumming is an ancient form of communication, meditation, and celebration. Playing an instrument rhythmically is also a great way to reduce stress, elevate feelings of well-being, improve brain functions, and have fun. Our sense of rhythm begins in the womb with our mother's heartbeat.

Playing in a drum circle is a social activity that enhances interpersonal connectivity, improves non-verbal communication, and builds community. Learning something new such as playing a musical instrument requires repetition, which in turn creates cell-to-cell connections in the brain and improves overall brain functionality. The various states of consciousness we experience are directly related to the electrical, chemical, and architectural environment of our brain. And we have the ability to change that for the better through activities such as drumming.

If you’ve got a heartbeat, then you’ve got rhythm! Join Becca Cummings for a playful exploration of rhythm in the breath, body, mind, and spirit. We invite you to bring your own percussion instrument or borrow one of Becca’s. Come and play!
