Take a Look, This is Exciting!
Drumming in the hospital environment is like a breath of fresh air
in a stale, stressful, sterile environment
Circles of Rhythm is proud to have been a part of the creation of a new therapeutic drum circle program at the South Health Campus and at the Rockyview Hospital in Calgary Alberta. We lent, and then rented our drums for 3 years in the development of this program, and have now trained and mentored Healing Drum Circle Facilitators in Calgary, and other locations around Alberta.
In Calgary Health Region Healing Drum Circles are now being offered every Friday and Tuesday afternoon from 130-230 pm, Friday at the South Health Campus Hospital, and Tuesday at the Rockyview Hospital. These Healing Drum Circles are for patients, staff and visitors alike!
In-house AHS research is indicating that Healing Drum Circles are highly effective for both our physical and mental health. They build a sense of community in the hospital environment and playfully lighten spirits in very difficult times.
Both Circles of Rhythm and the AHS programs are based on the following professional therapeutic tools tools:
~Kinetic Mood Retraining
~Physical Stress Symptom Reduction
~The Recovery Model
Circles of Rhythm is excited to have the opportunity to tender for the provision of training for new facilitators. We are committed to providing the highest quality training which is consistent with what is currently happening throughout the region. We are ready to serve when called!
