The sound of a beating drum strikes a primal cord within me. My body wants to move to the rhythm and my mind finds comfort in the repetitious sounds. There is something about drumming that soothes and heals. Perhaps at some level drumming reminds me of my very beginning when I was lulled by the sounds of my mother’s beating heart. I have always loved rhythm and beat.
At our farmers’ market this past Saturday we had the opportunity to listen to some great drummers and participate in a drumming circle. If you’ve never tried this I highly recommend seeking out an opportunity. You don’t need any musical experience and you will surprised by how fun and liberating it is.
