For the full schedule of drum circles this year, go to:


Drumming with others is an ancient practice that people have used for millennia all over the globe to connect, heal, learn, witness and celebrate with each other. It’s only been in the last few hundred years that many people in our modern cultures have stopped connecting in this way. 

Drum Circle Facilitator Vera Remes will lead us as we use various forms of vibration, such as simple clapping, drum, and rattle rhythms to create deep relaxation which allows the mind and body to become quiet.  Circle may include group drumming, chanting and breath work which will lead you to gain energized mental clarity, open creative inspiration, and expand your conscious awareness.  There will be elements of meditation and shamanic journeying (meditation for Type A personalities) and the inevitable Reiki share. ;) ;) Carving out this time to practice this form of meditation will deepen your access to relaxation and provide an opportunity for sharing your experiences.
