 Natural Awakenings Lancaster-Berks

Rhythm for Our Soul – Drumming Circle

It began with the Mother’s heartbeat, and we are all still connected. Let’s drum together!

Tammi will lead us through some of the ancient traditional rhythms and inspire you to express the rhythms in your own soul. Did you know that drums have notes? Learn the 3 traditional notes, the history of the instrument, and its culture. Express your own rhythms, learn traditional – and non-traditional – songs, movements, and most definitely have some fun! Please let us know ahead of time if you need a djembe drum.

WHAT TO BRING: Wear comfortable clothing, bring your water bottle, and get ready to rock! If you have a djembe, bring it, but if not, please let us know to bring one for you. When we play drums, we will remove rings and large items around your wrists (bulky bracelets or watches).

INSTRUCTOR BIO: Tammi Hessen is drawn to the transformative arts—she is a local family therapist, a health policy analyst, and a West African drumming educator in the Lancaster, Reading, Harrisburg, and York areas. Tammi has led drumming classes and circles for 20 years, teaches at Franklin & Marshall College, has a small private therapy practice, teaches empowering local drumming classes, and is a member of several music bands and performance groups. Ready to begin your journey? Contact Tammi for private or group drumming lessons, or for performances and school programs.
