Drum Circle

Drum and Dance Both dancing and drumming are valuable activities for brain fitness. Drumming has been shown to increase brain function and boost the immune system. So drum away!

The Community drum in the center is a place where you can drop images that inspire you, and have them display above the drum. It is part of the Galaxy Language project, which you can discover more about by visiting the Galaxy Language Drums.

Drumming can also be used to develop muscle and to increase relaxation. Here’s how: While you watch yourself drumming, clap in rhythm to the drum patterns. If you can, move your feet and body as you clap, stepping to the right and left, forward and back. Tap on your body, using your chest as a drum. This can be quite exhilarating!

Or use the drumming patterns to tap on the acupressure points in the images below (follow which ever is clearest to you). Use two or three fingers of either hand to tap gently on each of these points 6 or 7 times before moving on to the next point. Start at the side of the eye and end at the top of the head.
