  • Drumming - RhythMystical PlayShop (RuMPuS)

    This playshop still has yet to form. The intent is for every playshop, we engage in a connection exercise, workshop a rhythm, play with a drumming-related skill, and also enjoy free-form open drumming together. Not just a drum circle, nor just a drum class. Collaboration is the key - and anyone in the group may bring anything they wish to workshop, teach or learn for 3 hours of fun and learning and "playing-with".

    A purposely small, monthly, by-invitation group with people of different skill levels ranging from expert to newbie - in Aspen Hill, MD with fieldtrips a very likely possibility:

  • SuspenDC - Flesh Hook Suspension and Hook Pull Event with Participatory Drum Circle

    • Sunday, September 16th, from 1:00-9:00pm in downtown Washington, DC

  • Trial By Fire - Outdoor Overnight Flesh Hook Suspension, Fire Circle and Drum Circle Retreat

    • Saturday, August 25-26th, in Darlington MD
  • How to join or find out more about us

    We invite others in the DC metro area interested in our path to join us and find out if this is a direction for you to explore. If you are interested in learning more about us or have questions about the ideas we are exploring, please contact us.

    All genuine seekers are welcome. If this is not what you are seeking, then please seek elsewhere and blessings be with you.
