Today I facilitated a drum circle for an International Corporate Executive team in Banff. It was a strange experience setting up a circle in a Bowling Alley! However, it went splendidly and many connections were made, rhythmically and person to person. During the debrief at the end, the VP said this about what he personally received from this drum circle experience:
“I never thought of this before, but drumming is not just about the sound, but also about the Vibration.
In relationships, it is not just what is said,
but the feeling that comes through
that makes all the difference.”
This was an amazing statement because it is so true! 95% of communication is non-verbal. It is not what is said but the attitude with which they are delivered that makes it meaningful. He shared a quote that was at the bottom of n email he recently recieved from a colleagues that really struck him as true. It went something like this:
“I may not remember what you said, and
I may not remember what you did,
but I will always remember how it made me feel”
Beautiful connections in the Corporate world were made today. I am so blessed to be able to do this lovely work.
