What's the point?
That was the question I got from a high school junior after a drum circle.
So what is the point?
When we drum together we form community.
We allow ourselves to explore our own rhythm.
How do we find our rhythm? We let go of expectations. We listen to each other and find our place within the communities rhythm.
You may have been told, "You have no rhythm". NONSENSE! A good Drum Circle Facilitator can help you find your rhythm.
What if I make a mistake. THERE ARE NO MISTAKES! If you start a rhythm and don't like it, START ANOTHER RHYTHM! It's OK. Don't be so hard on yourself.
What is the best drum to use? The one that makes you happy.
It's that simple. Go drum.
