Participants will learn the many benefits of using Group Empowerment Drumming (GED) in their professional community health practices. In GED, participants are invited to play percussion instruments - small drums, tambourines, bells, woods, and shakers. With facilitator guidance, the participants play harmonious rhythms for healing, relaxation and expression. Research has shown promising results: increases in natural killer cell activity, reduction in stress and burnout rates, improvement in mood states, and enhanced creativity and bonding.
