    DRUM & CHANT

    Rejuvenation Workshop

    Led by:  Jim Donovan

    The Drum & Chant Workshop shows you how to:

    • Energize the brain and clear the mind
    • Lessen resistance & fear
    • Create deep relaxation and stress relief
    • Expand conscious awareness
    • Unblock energetic and emotional congestion
    • Open creative thinking and expression

    Enjoy learning how to improve the quality of your life by using the power of sound to effectively unblock, transform, and increase your energy. Through the group drumming, chanting and breathwork, you will learn how to gain energized mental clarity, reduce fear and anxiety, unblock emotional congestion, open creative inspiration and to expand your conscious awareness.

    Drumming and chanting with others is an ancient practice that people have used for millennia all over the globe to connect, heal, learn, witness and celebrate with each other. It’s only been in the last few hundred years that many people in our modern cultures have stopped connecting in this way.

    Join us to reclaim and experience this powerful and comforting way of being together in community.  

    Non-member fee:  $35 pre-registration only!
