This work is akin to archeology of the Self, where you will uncover and rediscover parts of yourself that you can then reclaim and use to enhance your journey through life.

The goal with this, and all of my programs is to foster EUDAEMONIA which can be best described as human flourishing, a contented state of being happy and healthy and prosperous.

This program was designed specifically for adults who are interested in gaining a better understanding of themselves and their place in the world.

It can be delivered as seven separate 1 hour sessions over time or condensed and delivered over the course of either one or two days

as a workshop.

The program is designed to:

    1 )   Help you gain a better understanding of the rhythms and natural forces that guide our lives which can bring us into greater harmony with ourselves and the world around us. The drum circle serves as a great metaphor for life. Being part of a drum circle enables us to pay more attention to how we are showing up in the world and with this increased awareness comes the opportunity for growth and change. Drumming is a primal activity that not only cultivates awareness, but develops intuition and insight, skills that are important to retain in an increasingly digital world. 

    2 )   Introduce you to all the basic instruments groups that make up a typical community drum circle soundscape so you can gain experience and confidence in playing a variety of instruments in any community drum circle. By the end of the seven sessions you will have had a chance to play a multitude of percussion instruments successfully in a drum circle setting. 

   3 )   Provide you with an opportunity to play and have some fun, to let loose and burn off some steam in a safe, supportive, engaging and uplifting atmosphere. Recreational drumming is rapidly becoming know as a great stress busting activity that produces measurable positive changes in the physical body.

It is an easy and accessible activity for anyone to do. 

No previous musical experience is necessary, all levels from beginners to pros can participate and are welcome.

The foundation of my teaching is simply this -  LISTEN. FEEL. PLAY.

This is a group activity led by your facilitator Jade with an emphasis on participation rather than performance.

In these sessions we will not be learning culturally specific rhythms, rather we will draw on universal rhythms and how they can work together to create something beyond what any individual can do alone.

The group drumming experience is a powerful way to get more connected with the people we share time and space with, to connect with one’s own inner voice and also to Source energy, the pool from which we all drink.
