Drum & Chant Workshop with Jim Donovan

A joyous experience of ecstatic drumming, toning and profound relaxation. Beginners are always warmly welcomed. Drums are provided.

Enjoy learning how to use the power of sound to effectively unblock, transform, and increase your energy. Through 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 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.
