Please join us August 25th, 2018 for “BuddhaBoom: Synergy in Mindfulness Meditation and Drumming for Healing” with Philip Wei’s.

This workshop will start with some quick instruction and introduction to drumming and meditation. The workshop will mainly consist of alternating healing drumming and guided meditation led by Philip No meditation or drumming experience required; drums and percussion instruments will be provided. During the drumming, participants may be sitting, standing, or at times moving around or dancing a bit, some of the drumming periods will have music to go with it, and Philip will provide all the sound equipment necessary. Efforting and letting go is one of the major themes in meditation practice, and this workshop will address this both intellectually and experientially. We will also explore the complementarity of sensory experience vs motor experience, i.e. input vs output; again thru discussion and practice.
