The Art Saving Life Foundation will host a HealthRHYTHMS Drum circle session on April 11, 2010, 5:00-6:00PM, performed by Mr. Emmanuel Amar.
“Without the obstacle of a challenging learning curve, group drumming is an enjoyable, accessible and fulfilling activity from the start for young and old alike. From exercise, nurturing and social support, to intellectual stimulation, spirituality and stress reduction, group drumming stimulates creative expression that unites our minds, bodies and spirits!” – Karl Bruhn, Father of the Music-Making and Wellness Movement
It is truly an extraordinary blend of time-tested elements that simply make sense in the overall scheme of maintaining and preserving the gift of a healthy life.
HealthRHYTHMS can also serve as a rather effective means for restoring a sense of inner balance amidst the incredible challenges of life. Referring to a HealthRHYTHMS session held for students and parents one year after a tragic high school event, Christine Stevens, MT/BC said, “Parents and children came to our drum circle silent, apprehensive and disconnected. At first it was difficult to even maintain eye contact. Knowing words could never communicate what each of us felt that day, we slowly began drumming together. The sadness we shared was overwhelming at first, as tears dampened our hands and instruments. Yet as we drummed, renewed support for each other and a collective sense of hope for a better tomorrow gradually replaced our despair. Our experience was more than therapeutic– it connected us on many levels.”
After all, our ability to connect with and support each other is why we’re here in the first place. It doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to realize group drumming is an incredible unifying tool that simply brings out the best in us.
