Date & Time
9:30 am - 5:30 pm
Glen Velez & Loire Cotler
Join Glen Velez, four-time Grammy-Award-winning master drummer, and Loire Cotler, critically acclaimed Rhythm Vocalist and Music Therapist, for an uplifting and energizing workshop of deep rhythmic discovery that will enrich your daily life and enliven your professional work in the healing arts! Our bodies are alive with pulse, and this guided interactive experience brings rhythm into our physicality using simple movements, gestures, overtone chanting, and the ancient vocal art of South Indian drum language. Using frame drums, shakers, and voice—essential shamanic instruments—to guide our sonic adventures, we will experience the bliss of flowing pulse and the healing power of rhythm and creative expression. No experience necessary.
