Rhythm Bliss Mindful Hand Drumming & Movement Session

Learn expressive and embodied practices that will help you re-energize your mind and body, reconnect with your community and yourself, restore your spirit, and renew your sense of play and imagination.

According to both worldwide, tradition-hallowed human experience and modern research, drumming is powerfully helpful and healing in times of stress, anxiety and trauma. In this experiential session, we will connect in movement and rhythm to the healing, repetitive pulse to release stress, cultivate joy and experience the serenity and healing inherent in the ancient art of hand drumming. No drum or musical experience is required (If you have a hand drum, you are welcome to bring it to the session and use it).

Course Objective

  • Predictable, soothing pulse at a tempo of 3-8 beats per second
  • Connecting body, breath and beat and feeling a sense of belonging as we play the Universal Heart Beat Rhythm together as a group
  • Practicing drumming with intention to receive the most benefit from our rhythm and movement meditation session
