What are Drum Circles?


Drum Circles are not ALL about Drumming!

Drum circles are so much more.  They are an effective tool for  health and wellness and a breath of fresh air in our fragmented stressed out world.  Research is pouring out pointing to Therapeutic Drum Circles as a powerful option for stress reduction and that is good news given that stress is the precursor for mental and physical illness.
