Find Your Inner Voice

(The connection between the chakras and drums)

  • The drum is one of the first forms of communications
  • The drum is our connection to the heart chakra
  • The drum is the heartbeat of humanity

Drum circles and music interventions are created to meet the individual needs and desired goals of the individual and/or group. Music intervention is designed to clear, balance, align and awaken the chakras through drumming, breathing and setting intention. The drum is our connection to the spiritual life. 

Participants will learn to tap into their chakras to ground with the earth, align their hearts, find their inner voice and develop personal power through drumming. The rhythm of the drum heals and changes lives. 

Music therapy is the application of Instruments (drums) and evidence based practice to create change, build inner awareness, evoke strength and set a desired path. Music therapy is a relationship conducted in a group and/or a one on one setting to facilitate, maintain or restore the individual’s highest potential based on a cognitive, emotional, physical and social wellbeing.

Spiritual men’s group (first meeting)

Meet with other men just like you. Create a bond and true friendship sharing your spiritual life with others. Help guide each other by sharing your experiences as the world continues to change all around you. This will be designed as a support group for men supporting each other through our use and knowledge of spirituality. The group will be facilitated by Jeff Mankin but will be run by all with monthly meeting, field trips, special speakers, trainings, healings and more.

About Kirtan

Kirtan is one of the oldest devotional practices on the planet. It gives one the opportunity to align with spirit and also community. This seemingly simple practice is a call and response vocalization. And wether we are chanting to the gods, or for our own personal release or simply as a way to come together with others it can be a profound experience that invites change and transformation. It's well suited for people who have trouble meditating because it occupies the minds normal processes, it gets us out of old patterns of thinking and can invite a quiet and peace that may be unfamiliar to us in our busy world.
