Discovering Relationships Using Music, Beliefs, Emotions, Attitudes, and Thoughts
There is something about drumming that brings people together. For thousands of years in ancient cultures the therapeutic nature of drumming allowed people to tell stories, meditate and grow spiritually.
In 2003, Holyoake – a leading provider of drug and alcohol counselling and support services – developed a program called DRUMBEAT to use music, psychology and neurobiology to connect with others and build team spirit.
Our Adventure Camping team can provide registered facilitators to deliver the DRUMBEAT program at your site, school or another mutually convenient location – we can even drum outdoors! We also have Djembe drums for hire. Contact us to find out more (08) 8388 5234.
