Thursday, 31 October marked the start of an exciting two weeks as members of the community took part in an African Drumming and Drum Circle Facilitation short course.
The Drum Circle Facilitation drumming sessions did not only bring heaps of fun, energy and excitement but has also brought healing and self-expression. When the drumming session started, those who participated were anxious, but in no time at all they felt comfortable and were able to think clearer while learning various rhythms on the drum.
They later also observed a group of children whose faces lit up as soon as they touched the drums and beat it for the first time.
Research shows that drumming has a calming and relaxing effect on the player and it is said that the sound of drumming generates dynamic neuronal connections in all parts of the brain even where there is significant damage or impairment such as attention deficit disorder.
Drumming is good for the mind and soul so, feel free to join a drumming circle as soon as possible!
You will feel rejuvenated and who knows, it might just turn into your new hobby.
