Why Drumming?

The Rhythm of the Drum touches something deep inside us, which makes it a powerful tool for healing and personal transformation. We all have a natural rhythm and if its out of alignment with our life rhythm, we feel discomfort and imbalance in ourselves. If you are constantly in a faster rhythm (stress and anxiety), your system can be out of balance and this can lead to dis-ease.

Have you ever tried a drumming cardio class or participated in a drum circle? Drumming releases endorphins, enkephalins and Alpha waves in the brain, which are associated with general feelings of well-being and euphoria, which may help people who suffer from mental illness.

As stated By Michael Drake:

Drum therapy is an ancient approach that uses rhythm to promote healing and self-expression. From the shamans of Mongolia to the Minianka healers of West Africa, therapeutic rhythm techniques have been used for thousands of years to create and maintain physical, mental, and spiritual health.”


 The benefits are endless! Drumming has so many benefits that have been recognised throughout the ages and is very much alive today as evidenced by the number of drumming circles emerging daily. It calms, focuses, treats stress, fatigue and a wide range of mental health issues. It can help with chronic pain and can boost your immune system. The drumbeat evokes many powerful forms of energy and is an aid in helping to focus one’s attention and to see clear intentions.

It provides people with a connection, which is sorely missed in these modern times. As our community disintegrates and becomes more fragmented - people become more socially isolated, suffer from a lack of direct interaction with others - social bonds are weakening and our society is becoming less cohesive. Worry over the tyranny of community has been replaced with a worry at the lack of cohesion and feeling of belonging. Therefore to have a powerfully connecting activity like drumming is important and essential. You can feel a deep connection with something beyond yourself, you connect with others through the rhythm and the group creates something greater than themselves. Read more on this article here.
