Djembe healing rhythm for nature and emotional well-being
Drumming either in a group or by yourself can be so uplifting and energising, with so many benefits of drumming.
Recently here in Australia we have faced many challenging moments with recent bush fires that have devastated wildlife and fauna, let alone the long term emotional effects. Even though I haven’t been affected directly by the fires, I grew up in the areas of the bushfires and know many people who have lived there.
For over a month, a day hasn’t gone by where the devastation of the bushfires, replayed over and over again on the news and social media. And that can have an effect on the psyche. I needed time out. Sometimes life can get away and forget what brings us joy. Last week when I was feeling a little down, I grabbed my drum and drummed away, like I would in a drum circle - in the moment. Just after 10 minutes of drumming I noticed I was feeling lighter.
Drumming for joy
It was a lovely reminder the importance of drumming. Taking time away from the challenges of the world and begin to tune into the heart, rhythm of the soul. Positive self-expression of being in the moment, not thinking, letting the hands dance on the djembe drum creating a lot of joy.

Drumming for healing, personal well-being and community
It’s important to give back to Mother Nature. Our thoughts are energy, music is energy and rhythm is energy. When we have an intention with our drumming it can be very powerful. Here is a beautiful healing rhythm you can play on your djembe drum to help heal Mother Nature.
