Warning: Rhythmical Alchemist at Play 😉

This Drum Trek idea is born out of a desire to continue to share my rhythmical Spirit with communites, as I have been doing for almost 20 years. Having met many wonderful folk along the road I couldn’t think of a better way of re-connecting with old friends and making new ones than in a drum circle…or 30+ of them…in 26 days….some trip huh?  It’s a marathon effort 😉

It is also my way of trying to put something back into two organisations that have given me so much over the years. Both are at the heart of what community means to me and it would give me so much pleasure to be able to help them financially. Imagine how good it would be to put £10,000 into each of their coffers. Imagine!

So I will take a month off from running Rhythmbridge and hit the road in the hope that my crazy journey will inspire people to put their hands in their pockets and help these two amazing charities fulfill their dreams.

Since founding Rhythmbridge in 1999 I have developed a way of working that is based very much in the present moment. “Work with what they give you,” a piece of advice offered to me by my Mentor and friend Arthur Hull many years since, has transformed how I look at my work. It has been for me a 360 degree shift and one which continues to fill my life with abundance in my classes and circles.

It, the work,  gets pulled out of me, if I am open enough. No longer am I there just to impart my knowledge or teaching skills but to also allow participants to draw out from me what it is that they want or require to move along their own road of learning and experience.

This idea for Drum Trek came from the same place.

It’s what I do.

Let’s just follow that bliss.

I work with everyone equally. Students of culturally specific rhythms, community drum circle participants, children and teachers in schools…everyone is equal in the circle.

I am blessed with a life of Rhythm, Dance and Song.

Actually, thinking about it it’s not work at all. It’s play.

I hope to see you at one of the Drum Trek circles.
