The first sounds we hear whilst still in our mother's womb is that of a heart beat
Before we are born we are attuned to the beat, vibration and rhythm of the drum
The drum is the oldest musical instrument used by cultures right around the world
If you know the rhythm of a heart beat then you can play a drum so no previous experience or knowledge required
We offer different ways to take part in Drum Medicine
1. Drum Medicine Circle at the Unitarian Hall in Newport,
Isle of Wight on Saturday mornings
2. A home based course if you are isolating
(email firstname.lastname@example.org to take part)
3. Level One on line course to become a
Drumming 4 Dementia practitioner
4. Drum Medicine Circle for patients at Seven Acres
(St Marys Hospital, Isle of Wight)
For us at Nature Therapy, drum circles are about having fun in a social setting. There is no need for words as communication occurs through the drumming.
Circles do not focus on performance. You do not need to have any musical skills or have played a drum before, Everyone can drum.
We can use drumming to raise energy by using strong rhythms and beats, or to relax through gentler more soothing vibrations.
Emotional Well Being
Drumming together is proven to lift mood and reduce anxiety. It helps tune us back into our inner child. Where you experienced being in the moment and having fun with your friends.
There are no wrong notes.
The drum helps you get out of your mind by letting go of troublesome thoughts and connecting with the rhythm of your own heart
What happens at a Circle?
If the drumming workshop is taking place inside, the room will be set up in a circle with a drum for each person. More than welcome to bring your own drum.
You will be given help to learn some very simple beats which will get you drumming straight away.
There are no wrong beats or rhythms.
Circles are not lessons in drumming. They are about helping you tune in to yourself and other around you.
