Drumming Meditation

Course Outline:

Drumming Meditation Weekly Class 

Experience meditation, mindfulness and the flow state while creating rhythmic beats on a drum. A
fusion of African and shamanic drumming. Learn to play basic rhythms on African drums
(djembes) and experience shamanic drum journeys with shamanic (frame) drums. Practice
mindfulness, or rather mind-emptiness as you learn simple rhythms on a drum and enter the
gateway into the timeless, flow space. Learn how to use the drum as a bridge from your monkey
mind to the spaciousness within. Go deep with guided meditations and drum journeys. Let the
rhythm engulf you, forget about everything and be present in this beautiful moment. Learn how to
connect to this stillness & drum it into your life.

About the Tutor

Hi there, I’m Sal & I’ve had the pleasure of teaching & performing African Drumming (Djembe) since 2007. I played the djembe as a hobby for some years and followed an exciting evolution from attending classes (just like this one!) to performing live, teaching and facilitating classes. I’ve taught at various community colleges and schools throughout Sydney, run Women’s sacred drumming circles and am part of a performance troupe which performs at both community & private events. I enjoy teaching African drumming immensely as it is such a unique modality which transcends age, race, sex, religion and preconceived notions of musicality and ability. It brings people from all walks of life together regardless of whether they have ever touched a musical instrument before, to create music - in the moment, to be - in the moment and to enjoy those moments in the spirit of sacred shared community space which is more important right now then we have ever known. “United we conquer, divided we fall.” - Aesop.
