Mind, body, spirit, community.
Christine Stevens talks about the healing power of drum circles.
Mind: the self censoring part of your brain turns off when you improvise musically.
Body: Natural killer cells which are an important part of circulating while blood cells increase after an hour of drumming.
Spirit: the drum is one of the oldest human means of accessing the spiritual realm. Music is as important to us as food, it feeds our soul.
Community: we create an equal playing field, which is not only good for our health but creates community and a new way of being together.
