What is Drum Circle?
At LAC Drum Circle we just drum! Sandra Sabene CDCF guides us through some basics and welcomes any beginner with simple ways to keep the heart beat flowing. Anyone can drum! We have been drumming together every month for 10+ years and we love to relax, rejuvenate and ride the rhythm. Sometimes we start with a planned rhythm and everyone learns a new beat, but mostly we allow the night to take us all on a fun journey of expressing our uniqueness through rhythm and song. It's meditative, relaxing AND powerfully rejuvenating. Join us next month and every 3rd Friday of the month 7-9pm. ($5 to join & $5 to rent a drum).

THE MAGIC OF DRUMMING CIRCLES
People from many different backgrounds are getting together to create connections through the sheer joy of drum rhythms. Drumming circles are the ultimate stress reducer, the Prozac of the natural world if you will. It is a time for everyone to get together and just be. Natural bio-chemicals in the body are released which help boost the immune system, among other things Inner chatter is instantly quieted, and a peaceful meditative state is often the result, as the drum connects with your own heartbeat. Adults re-learn how to play and have fun because remember, the drum is the ear of the Great Mystery. Peace on earth becomes a reality.
