Empowering Group Drum Journeys in Norwich
drumNorwich offers empowering drum journeys for groups, and at festivals and events in the Norwich and Norfolk area.
A drum journey can be deeply healing, bring peace, insights and understanding; release negative feelings, blockages and emotional trauma. Drumming is scientifically proven to alter brain waves, which induces a trance state. With a repetitive drum beat, this slows our brain waves, rests the mind, and allows a deep inner connection. Journeying is similar to dreaming in that unconscious information can be found through symbols and imagery, but participants are awake and always in control. Drum journeys brings healing and balance within our whole being, creating a therapeutically transformative experience.
Using skills I acquired through studying Hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), I create a specific visualisation for the chosen focus of the group. This has included themes such as; peace, joy, freedom, strength, hope, love, abundance, clarity, gratitude and courage. Using the Reiki Drum Technique, I steadily drum while participants relax either lying down or sitting on a chair. I additionally offer a ‘drum wash’ over each participant, which involves drumming over each person to enable a deeper experience with the vibrations of the drum reaching all parts of the body. Participants are given some time to take their personal journey whilst listening to the drum beat in a safe and supportive environment, before being called back from their experience. As a qualified Counsellor, I hold a safe space and encourage everyone to explore and discuss their journey and feelings, to enable further transformation.
Group drum journeys can be adapted to the needs of the group and be held in any environment, such as in a meeting room, in a marquee at an event, or at a festival in a quiet area. I have held many journeys, such as at private events, wellbeing days, as well as at Harlequin Fayre. There is no minimum or maximum number that can participate and benefit from a drum journey, and I allow an hour to include a 30-40 minute visualisation/journey (depending on the size of the group) and a discussion beforehand and afterwards.
Group drumming, where all participants have the chance to drum and use percussion together can also be included as part of a package, or be offered separately. For more information, see Group Drumming.
If empowering drum journeys would interest your group, be it private, at an event or festival; do get in touch to discuss your needs, possible dates and my hourly fee. I have full insurance and an Enhanced DBS certificate.
Caution: Reiki Drum Journeys are not recommended for people who have epilepsy with regular seizures, those who experience psychosis, schizophrenia, hallucinations, have a history of severe emotional issues, or people with pacemakers fitted. Reiki Drum Journeys should never replace treatments prescribed by a medically qualified professional. Please contact me if you require further information.
Thank you so much for your Drum for Courage Journey at Release Wellbeing Day! It was sensational; I was left tingling all over and felt very rested and re-set after! I hope to join you again at one of your sessions in the future! Thanks – Lucy, Wellbeing Day participant
