A nurturing, safe place for women to gather, to share in rhythm, in drumming, to heal, to share, to be creative, feel energized, alive and revitalized
History shoes us incredibly how WOMEN were the first drummers – and they were shown playing FRAME DRUMS!
The frame drum was the primary mythological instrument used for rites of passages in ancient Mediterranean cultures, such as Italy, Israel, Egypt, and Greece;
They were the Shamans, the Priestesses,and keepers of the sacred RHYTHM – empowered, dynamic and alive.
