Spiritual purposes.

 

Drumming in a Group is an ideal way to meditate or journey. We hope that the atmosphere within the circle allows those who wish, to use the group for Spiritual practice .

Rhythmic Drumming aids a trance like state which allows us to transcend the superficial mind.

The vibration created by the drum changes brainwave patterns from Beta or Alpha to Theta, initialising a deeper state of mind. The Drumming allows this Trance like experience Allowing space for mourning or meditating.

True connection to Spirit is ultimately found within ourselves
