Soul Circles Drumming offers community classes and courses based on West African Djembe music. Sessions deeply integrate universal elemental wisdom within rhythms that are presented, with a specific meditative focus to each.
I want to thank you for your teachings. Though I owned my own drum, I was hesitant to play it as I consider myself a rarity - a Latino with zero rhythm. You opened me up to my playing the drum to my rhythm and now it is an essential tool in my practice. Your classes are easy and accessible to all no matter what their musical ability. I found that in your drumming class all was accepted as we let go of getting it right and we felt the power, energy and healing that comes with group rhythmic work. Thank you for making drumming in all forms accessible to all. Deeply grateful.

Classes are based on the premise that the four physical elements that harmonise in the natural world may act as a guide toward congruency in the personal creative journey. Thus, these sessions invite their participants to recognise their sublimity as creators by activating their intentions with the wisdom of the elements and with the powerful vibration of the traditional ensemble.
Classes may include the following:
Mornington Community Drum Circle
The Vitality Space
These classes run on a fortnightly basis (every second Saturday) from 2pm-4pm. These will be interrupted from November 18th to make way for our special 5-week immersion in Mornington, and recommence in 2018.
Ananda Community Drum Circle
Ananda Hot Yoga
These classes run on five-weekly cycles. Each class focusses on a rhythm that reflects the energy of one of the five elements, moving through AIR, FIRE, WATER, EARTH and ETHER in turn. You are welcome to join us on a casual basis, or to book the full cycle at a discount. Each class will run on a Friday night from 7.30-9pm.
