Drum circles are not just about drumming – they are so much more. They are an effective tool for health and wellness and breath of fresh air in our fragmented stressed out world. Research has proven drum circles promote mental clarity, mood enhancement, physical energy, and community connection.  What better way to spend an afternoon!

Covid-19 protocols will be in place. We will have clean drums and instruments, clean hands, and friendly faces to welcome you!”
