NS Community Drum Circle
NS Community Drum Circle
On January 14, and continuing on the second Saturday of every month through the year, the North Shore Community Drum Circle resumes operation, and any & all are invited to come and give your spirit a way to make a joyful noise! All sessions start at 10am and go until noon, with time for conversation and refreshments. The cost is $20 per session, accompanied children under 12 are free, as are attendants for those with developmental challenges.
For more than five years, Lynn Valley United Church has hosted the only regular monthly Community Drum Circle on the North Shore. It has been an opportunity for you to put your hands into action to awaken your spirit... anyone and everyone can take part,with amazing health and wellness benefits for all, regardless of age, experience, mobility, or ability. While a new church has been under construction, the drum circle continued at Cedarview Lodge Care Centre, and it is with deep gratitude that LVUC extends a huge thanks to them for giving shelter to the drum circle while we waited for a new home to be built.
It is with great anticipation that the programs and services of Lynn Valley United Church move into a beautiful new church home, which coincides with the homecoming of Lyle Povah, a drumming and yoga instructor, facilitator, researcher, and practitioner. Lyle brings years of experience, knowledge and working to enhance individual and group well-being through drumming in community... and he has facilitated the North Shore Community Drum Circle in the past, so is well-know and well-loved!
If you have questions about this, or any music program at Lynn Valley United Church, please contact Music Director/Producer, Frank Chu.
