What is Creative Rhythms ?
Experiential: Attend CR events which include wellness experiences in the expressive arts, rhythm and meditation arenas. Each event can be beneficial on its own. Many participants are inspired to attend many CR events which may inspire the leader within to ask how they can get more involved.

Vision/Mission: The Creative Rhythms Mission is simple: Build bridges that inspire connection and community through creative self development experiences. These bridges inspire strong community foundations within existing groups/facilities and create building blocks for newly forming communities or businesses.

Why was this program developed in 2018:
* Creative Rhythms Facilitator Training Program was developed and launched in late 2018 due to the rising interest and demand for our programs which began growing fast in 2016. There are not enough facilitators offering these types of programs and we felt the need to train people to do what we do.

Who would would benefit most from this training:
• Drummers, artists, wellness practitioners seeking growth (personal & business)
• Persons experiencing a life transition seeking like-minded people
• LAC community members looking to become part of the team
• Drum Circle Facilitators searching to add a uniqueness to their program
• Teachers, leaders, healthcare professionals searching for alternative experiential tools to incorporate within their program/community ect.
