Meditation is a process that GROWS what you hold in mind... and is amplified when shared together! 

Have you considered the incredible benefits that occur in a GROUP meditation?  


 Through Mantras, Visualization, Thought Creativity and Trance space we offer you...



Drumming can allow an individual to delve deeper into a meditative state.  The use of drumming brings natural rhythm to mind and body and synchronizes into coherence between brain and heart.  The mind and body can respond to the rise and fall of the rhythm being played, taking the mind from an active, nervous state to a calmer, more open and relaxed awareness.  The repetition of the drumming helps ease the cascading thoughts and anxious energy.  

The synchronization of meditative or relaxation states can become healing rhythms.  For those who may have difficulty attempting meditation, but would be interested in the health and wellness benefits that meditation can elicit, drumming can be a big help throughout the process. Drumming can be a natural way to promote wellness and relaxation, and combining it with a meditative state can only help increase the benefits of each practice.  

Introducing meditation and drumming into a routine can be an adventure in quieting thoughts, reducing stress and anxiety, and promoting a quieter, more peaceful state of mind.

Rhythmic drumming can create a shift in one's state, which can have a wide range of therapeutic applications. A recent study by Barry Quinn, Ph.D. demonstrates that even brief drumming sessions can double alpha brain wave activity, dramatically reducing stress. The research sites that brain waves shift from predominantly Beta waves (focused concentration) to Alpha waves (calm and relaxed), creating a deeper connection to one's well-being. The sound of a drum can help us to take notice of our own heartbeat. It is our heartbeats that keep us alive and vital. Drumming can also be very therapeutic in getting in touch with our inner selves.
