HealthRHYTHMS® Group Empowerment Drumming Facilitation Training (Basic Training) teaches a fun, evidence-based whole person strategy which promotes socialization and ensures a healthy non-strenuous workout. On a deeper level it builds bridges while fostering nurturing, support, camaraderie, self-respect and respect for others. It is not really about drumming, but uses the drum as a tool for communication and personal expression. This system can be integrated as a therapeutic strategy in group counseling sessions, support groups, rehabilitation centers, schools, hospitals, aging facilities and more.
Completing this training prepares you to facilitate programs using the HealthRHYTHMS protocol and also provides the foundational knowledge necessary to participate in the HealthRHYTHMS Adolescent Protocol Training in the future.

Our goal is to establish group drumming as an integral "whole person" component for use in conventional healthcare and wellness environments.
