Therapeutic Thanksgiving - Heal and Strengthen Family Ties With Djembe

When we create rhythm in groups, our heartbeats align.  We tune-in to higher energies.  We tap into a deeper wisdom and turn on a spiritual intuition.

The Djembe - The Goddess

Drumming with Kids

But djembe saved the afternoon!! First, they both just stared at the drums as if I'd placed some alien life in front of them. But it only took a few seconds for the musical genius to start flowing.  Our jam session rocked!
