"Jade, you have a presence and a way about you that was a nice balance to our fast paced industry where it's easy to lose perspective. Thanks for helping us through our journey."
While it is said that only 39% of Canadian employers have a workplace mental health strategy...
in Canada 58% of employees said chronic stress negatively affects productivity.
In today's world we are facing an ever increasing amount of stress, impacting our health and overall quality of life.
For business owners this means taking steps to create a happy healthy workplace matters more than ever.
I believe there is a time for play and a time to work hard.
We need to get the balance right, and ensure that we build in some fun time!
More feedback from participants of Zen Rhythm Co. drum circles...
"I was one of the people that Jade spoke about when she said that "Some people believe they have no rhythm". She went on to explain that everyone had a rhythm and could follow a beat to some degree, and by the end of the session I agreed with her. She showed me a skill of mine that I wasn't aware existed!"
"Nice to see what happens when everyone works together."
"Jade is amazing. I will be recommending her to my friends if they are looking for new and creative work team building sessions."
"I thought it brought everyone together, it was a good idea for building the team. I see why it is useful in the workplace. It made everyone connect on a new level.
I thought it was fun. It was interesting how Jade told us it would affect how we felt that day. I was more energized and felt more aware of myself."
"Fantastic job - I enjoyed it and I know the staff did too. I can see getting hooked on drumming.
Thank you so much!"

"Like how it kept a professional tone and didn't get too touchy feely or put individuals on the spot. Group dynamics was appreciated."
"Showed the importance of each team to create something special.
Personally? Brought a little joy to my day in an unexpected way! "
Drumming is a fun, easy and accessible activity that has been used to unite and uplift people for thousands of years.
"A really nice break from a regular hectic day."
“Jade did an outstanding job explaining how the drum circle is one of the oldest form of teamwork, and how important each participant is to creating the whole experience of the drumming.
She managed to get a group of engineers to play in tune – who knew we could sound as awesome as we did!
As a facilitator, Jade skillfully customized her drumming workshop to suit our small team of engineers. Everyone felt useful and was given a chance to contribute, and as a whole the drumming experience was an excellent team-building activity”.
