Drumming. Sound Healing. Mindfulness.
Build Your Brain, Relieve Stress and Tap Your Creativity with Drumming

Wisdom of Rhythm Retreat is for anyone who is interested in exploring the spiritual side drumming and is looking for a profoundly joyful and deep immersive experience. As always with Jim's events, beginners are warmly welcomed and drums are provided.

You will take part in an array of enjoyable and beginner friendly musical activities including:
Group Drumming & Expressive Music Creation
Brain Builder Drumming Exercises
Sound Healing Techniques
Drumming and Meditation

Experience the camaraderie of a safe, supportive and friendly group of people where you can feel comfortable to just be yourself- without the pressure of being “good” at music.

"Just attended "The Wisdom of Rhythm" retreat with in Westminster, Md., and once again have come away with a plan and desire to be a better me. Jim is all about helping those who attend his workshops and retreats to become "the best version of ourselves" through drumming and rhythm exercises in a totally supportive and non-threatening environment. VERY highly recommended. Thanks again Jim!" -Rick Gruenewald

The program is composed of three interconnected concepts that will focus on:
Developing and practicing creative drumming skills
Personal wellness and becoming the next best version of you
Renewing and deepening your connection to your inner wisdom

Learn a balanced array of evidence-based techniques that will help you to:
Relieve stress & anxiety
Get deep, more restful sleep
Gain mental clarity
Increase and sustain your energy
Become the next best version of you

"I just spent my first workshop with Jim. It won't be my last. I didn't have any preconceived ideas about what would be happening. Good thing because I never would have conjured it to be as fabulous as it was! It's not about the drumming so if you have any curiosity but no drumming experience, don't let that keep you away. In practical ways for everyone, at your own choosing, Jim gifted us with an experience---a beginning, a middle, and an amazing end---that enabled us to transcend into our next best version of ourselves. Thank you!" -Jacke Schroeder

Participants can expect:
A clear purpose
Actionable steps
Activities to do and feel
Inspiration to go further
Social connection opportunities
Drums are provided and beginners are warmly welcomed.
