Your Life on Drums

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.
