Pyramids of Chi

Community Drum Circle

An effortless use of drums as a tool for unity

About this experience

Humans from all walks of life with varying musical skills come together to share their rhythmical spirit.

Everyone who shows up and joins has something to offer the circle, and any one is welcome. The invitation is to come and allow yourself to be immersed into the experience of being a part of the drumming circle. 

What happens is a rhythmical entrainment - time dissolves into the moment and Music plays the people. No one is in control of how it sounds or where it is going. The feeling in the room is felt by everyone and continues to carry the circle further into the musical adventure. 

By playing together we give and receive a “rhythmical massage,” an emotional release and healing by moving our energy from our inside out into the room. Allowing what is felt to be heard. Through sharing our rhythmical spirit and giving sound to our feelings (excitement, joy, sadness, anger) we transcend any need of learning how to play and instantly get into the groove of the group.

The Community Drum Circle will be led by Joseph Wallin.

*Booking is essential to secure a drum to loan. If you have your own drum come along on the day.

“The quality of the music produced in an event like this is not based on the rhythmical expertise of the players, but on the quality of their relationship with the other people in the circle. The result is those magical musical moments where one powerful voice is created out of the many. In those moments, the players stop worrying about keeping time because time, as they know it, has stopped. In its place is a living breathing entity, expressing timeless joy, passion and release through the power of rhythm"

This event is guided and facilitated by Joseph Wallin who has been immersed in the art of drumming for 20 years. He is dedicated to teaching how to play in effortless flow, without the need to learn techniques before we start playing. His search for engaging his students in this style taught him how to connect with his own voice and use it as a tool for healing. He has since then been working with the intimate connection between voice therapy and the art of drumming.
