March Baltimore Drum Church


Drum Church is a live, group experience, where the drum serves as a vehicle to connect with the divine spirit that is inside each and everyone of us. Our Gatherings offer an opportunity to think, meditate or even pray in your own way, while riding a rhythm wave to awaken a spiritual connection. Drum church is not a “drum circle“, but a guided, communal drumming experience. All we ask is for you to bring your sense of wonderment and a drum. When possible, please bring a yoga mat, cushion or fold-up chair. Drums will be made available, on a first come/first serve basis, for those who desire to drum.

An Introduction to Community Self Defense

This self-defense class welcomes ALL regardless of race, religion,
orientation, or identity.

**Queer Friendly! As Self Defense is important in the ever-changing political/social climate now more than ever!***

We will be working with the “Five Fingers Of Safety” model: “Think, Yell, Run, Fight, Tell.” Targeted for those without previous martial arts or self-defense training; but experienced students are also welcome. We will practice verbal and non-verbal communication skills for dealing with conflict, and simple physical self-defense techniques to help you escape from an attack.

Taught by Kyoshi Tom Swiss, 5th degree black belt in Seido Karate.



Sounds of Spirit: Music for the Inner Journey at FAM 11/2 !

Sounds of Spirit is visiting us at FAM on 11/2 from 7-9. It’s a beautiful, transformative experience,–and so relaxing!

Make sure to reserve your spot ASAP, as space is limited:



“When a musician works with sound, it is as if he or she were placing an ear on the heart of nature. The musician perceives the will of nature and the cosmos and gives it back in a melody…

The art of healing is resonance between higher self and body. This resonance initiates recognition understanding, knowledge, restoration, recentering, and finally healing…
Love, music, and nature offer the most sublime and uplifting possibilities of resonance…to greater aspects of ourselves.”
-Fabien Maman

Participants are immersed in a deeply relaxing and transformative soundscape. This rich field of vibrations can act as a potent catalyst for:

-Stress relief
-Deep relaxation & centeredness
-Emotional release & clarity
-Physical pain relief & healing
-Chakra & energy system balancing/activation
-Personal insight, transcendental awareness, & spiritual connection

Using chant, overtone singing, didgeridoo, shamanic drumming, crystal singing bowls, shruti box, hang drum, flute, tambura, and other elemental textures, Jim Thomas (acupuncturist and musician), Paul Thomas (sound healer and musician), Pitz Quattrone (didgeridoo teacher, performer, and builder), and David Powell (musician) create together a powerful inner experience guided by sound and rhythm.
