Science demonstrates that drumming increases the development of various regions of the brain, including the motor and auditory cortexes. Traditionally, hand drumming has been used in many cultures, to help create a conduit to the Divine. Group drumming allows us to experience worship with our bodies as well as our minds, and provides us with demonstrated biological and psycho-social benefits.
While facilitating Mindful Drumming sessions, our unique approach uses the drums as communication and personal expression tools. We are passionate about empowering individuals by guiding them to open up to their highest good.
“This was REALLY GOOD! MJ is a calm and confident guide. Highly recommend!”
— Narissa Young, Musician, Sound & Vibroacoustic Therapist
