My first drumming experience.

It was great fun. At times I felt completely lost and other times I felt myself closing my eyes and getting lost in the rhythm. It reminded of dancing to trance music or belly dancing. Definitely relaxing and uplifting.

I needed to rest my hands every now and then (if you have ever clapped so much that you get a numb tingling sensation then that is more or less how it feels)- our facilitator also gave us some rest periods to flex our fingers. He joked that drumming isn't so much about talent but about stamina.

I would definitely do it again. I think the more one practises and opens one self to the experience the more you can experience a variety of benefits.

So the Cape town Drum Cafe maybe seeing me soon. The UU are planning to host another drumming circle.

PS - my husband forgot my camera in the car. Hopefully I get some pictures from Dave's wife later the month. Will have to scan them in though.
