Drum development workshop

A special 3-hour event held at Klitsgras designed for people interested in developing their Djembe skills.

Paul Boyter will be sharing some of his own personal djembe knowledge gained over 20 years as a professional percussionist. He hopes to inspire fellow Djembe players to continually push the boundaries of their current knowledge. Its not all about West African rhythms and beats - its a mix of drum styles and influenceses that bring out a variety of sounds from the Djembe.
The workshop will be kept light and fun with helpful tips and tricks that could be used in all drum circles.

Yoga Nidra

In simple terms, it’s a technique in which you learn to relax consciously. We all know sleep is important for balanced functioning, with most people putting in their 6 to 8 hours of rest each night. The question is, how many of us actually feel rested? How often do you find yourself lying in bed mulling over your thoughts from the day? How many of us spend time just before bed looking into our screens, observing all the social media tit bits from the day?

Therapeutics of Drumming

Drumming in a group isn’t just about beating rhythmic patterns out around a fire - it’s so much more than that. It speaks to a deeper rhythmic source found in our DNA; the first sound that imprinted its hypnotic pulse on all of us was the sound of our mother’s heart. Beating a drum in time with others speaks to this cellular connection, allowing us a chance to feel that we are apart of something greater then ourselves once again.

Yoga Nidra

  • Google Calendar ICS

The focus of Yoga Nidra is in large part on educating people on the “threefold tensions” – those of the muscular system, the emotional system and the mental system. The practices learnt become useful tools that will empower individuals to shift towards a homeostatic state. These sessions are aimed at developing and improving the conscious connection to the body temple, supporting this connection with live, soothing meditative sounds.
