Drum Jam is a group drumming activity focused on allowing for fun, personal creativity, and teamwork while encouraging individual leadership opportunities. Drum Jam incorporates wellness and emotional regulation activities to enhance personal wellbeing. Drum Jam is led by a facilitator trained in Drum Circle Leadership.
Therapeutic drumming has been used for thousands of years to promote healing, interpersonal connection and self-expression. Recent studies indicate drumming has been found to improve self-esteem; aid in addiction recovery; increase stress relief, mood elevation, and attention to task; decrease depression and anxiety symptoms; and increase social connectivity and a sense of wellbeing. Hermitage House offers both Drum Jam and the evidence based HealthRHYTHMS protocol.
