CHANGE YOUR BRAIN WITH MEDITATIVE DRUMMING

Drumming has been used throughout human history and culture in many forms and with many intentions. Modern neurological research shows that particular kinds of drumming can alter brainwave patterns in ways similar to other forms of meditation, increase mental focus, and support mental and physical relaxation.

This workshop will introduce a particular form of meditative drumming based on the ancient Chinese oracle known as the I Ching. It is easy to learn and requires no previous experience.
