Medicine Drum Rhythms, Chants & Songs. FULLY BOOKED

June 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Learn foundational rhythmic patterns, chants and songs, and journey deeper into Medicine Drumming

These sessions are for those that love medicine drumming and want to learn how to connect with, and bring out, its’ inner voice.

Drumming connects us with the natural pulse of life; the planet and oneself.

For centuries it has been used to enter into altered states of consciousness for healing; ceremony and journeying. The act of drumming is transformative as it has the ability to alter our brain wave state, can induce deep states of relaxation and reduce stress. It draws us into the present moment, thereby supporting mindfulness, meditation and transformation.

Through the use of rhythm, breath and song, together we will journey to a restorative place of calm, peace and presence.

Notes and audio files of each session will be provided.

YOUR FACILITATOR

These sessions are led by Neil Jourdan, a registered music therapist, drummer and percussionist. He has been involved in drumming for the past 20 years working across a number of sectors.  He crafts high quality shamanic inspired medicine drums under the name of Feather Song Drums, with customers worldwide.
