We offer two different monthly drumming groups each month - the Drum Circle where you can come along, drum and connect; and the Drum Journey where you can relax as a solo drum is played by Ruth as part of a traditional restorative journey process.  


Group 1: Drum Circle

Come along, drum and connect!

with Ruth Summers of Dao Natural Health


Monthly on Sundays - see 2020 dates (right)

Time: 3-4pm 

Cost: £14 per person with drum provided / £12 with your own drum

Pre-booking required - please contact ruth@daonaturalhealth.co.uk


Group drumming is something everyone can do regardless of drumming or musical experience, it's about enjoying ourselves in rhythm together! All are welcome, even if you've never touched a drum before in your life!


The Bamana people of Mali in West Africa are cited as being the creators of the Djembe drum. Djembe translates as "everyone gather together in peace" which is what we do at our drumming circles.


Research into the health benefits of rhythmic drumming have shown to be physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It brings people together, improving listening and communication skills, communicating without words, improves confidence. It allows for the creative self-expression and the joy of improvisation.


Spaces are limited so booking is essential.




• £12 per session if you have your own drum to bring


• £14 per session if you would like to borrow one of our drums, Ruth will be happy to bring along as many drums as required if you contact her in advance


We have djembe and smaller frame drums available, there's plenty of percussion to experiment with too.

Group 2: Drum Journey

Experience the peace of a traditional drum journey

Time: 3 - 3:45pm

Cost: £10

Drum journeys are an ancient and sacred practice used by many cultures around the world as a way of moving oneself into an altered state of consciousness similar to meditation or to that just before falling asleep. They induce a kind of day dream or lucid dream allowing one to rest in a perhaps more unified state of being where one has the potential to see themselves and their process more clearly offering deep transformation, inspiration and insight.


Other benefits include stress hormone (cortisol) reduction, blood pressure and heart rate lower, potassium/sodium levels in the body can re-balance, cellular regeneration can take place and our autonomic nervous system can relax, offering the potential to find relief from physical pain, reduced stress and improvement in stress related symptoms, working on all levels of being, physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically and spiritually, in a person centred way. After the group Drum Journey (approx 25 mins of drumming + additional relaxation time) you are invited to share your experience with the group if you wish.
