Taking a circle of drummers through transformation is a life changing event.
The circle gives us equanimity and clarity. It allows us open communication and connection.
Not sitting behind desks or standing in lines; instead a limitless path.
Now take the circle and twist it in on itself to give a spiral. Allow the drummers to overlap each other as they play.
Hear the overlap, the fields of rhythm. Plant a starting rhythm at the centre point of the spiral and let it travel outwards along the curve from player to player and drum to drum.
Once the rhythm is breathing by itself take the spiral on a journey, let it move and spin.
Feel the rhythms sweeping from the centre to the edges and let the momentum build and the energy rise.
Let the spiral expand like a galaxy and unfold out into the room. Keep playing and listening.
When the expansion is complete join the ends together and bring everyone on back to the circle of one.
Connect together and breathe.
