March Baltimore Drum Church

dchurch

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.

Giving Thanks Drum Gathering at Firehouse Arts & Music

Drum Church is a group drumming and meditation experience. 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 journeying on a flow state created by the rhythm of the drum. Drum Church is not a “drum circle“, but a guided, communal drumming experience to awaken a spiritual connection within us all.

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 and rhythm instruments will be made available, on a first come/first serve basis.

FREE TO ATTEND (DONATION APPRECIATED)

“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.
