Boost vitality, connection and joy with mindfulness and group drumming
• Understand the neurophysiological benefits of therapeutic presence
• Learn take home tools to strengthen presence with self, clients, students and others
• Increase resiliency and well-being
Being fully present enhances our health, wellbeing, and relationships. In our fast-paced world and demanding roles as therapists, educators, parents, and partners, presence can be compromised. Having diverse and evidence-based tools then, are invaluable for becoming present.
This workshop will use the Therapeutic Rhythm and Mindfulness (TRMTM) program to cultivate presence and
resiliency, a unique approach combining group drumming, mindfulness and emotion focused awareness. Rhythm modalities offer a fun and expressive way of increasing vitality and social connectedness. Mindfulness helps to enhance attention, focus, and present moment awareness. Together we will play with rhythm and practice mindfulness as a path to cultivate presence and resiliency. Take home tools for presence and resiliency will be woven into the workshop and with these practices, we can develop new ways to deepen our listening and relating while feeling energized, calm, and centered. With self-care comes an enhanced energy and capacity to feel connected with and to care compassionately for others. Ideal for health care professionals, educators, parents and anyone interested in cultivating presence. No previous drumming or meditation experience required.
