many thanks go to you for facilitating this group. I had never drummed before and while I was trying to come into the
group with an open mind, I was still a tad skeptical walking into that first session, not really knowing what to expect.
Well, you have a believer….I was blown away by the power and transformation that I witnessed and am so glad that I
did it! Thank you for so skillfully and gently guiding the group to where they needed to go."

come to realize that nothing in life prepares us for losing some we love...nothing...
After trying numerous support groups I discovered
the Healing Rhythms Drum Circle. I was amazed how the vibration of the drum filled the emptiness I was feeling since
my husband passed away. We drummed as a group, cried and made lasting friendships. Through drumming I saw a glimmer
of hope for my future.
The journey in grief can be lonely until you find others along the same path. For me, that was drumming."
"I can’t tell you how much I appreciated the
Healing Rhythms Grieving group. It was incredibly beneficial and healing for me. Thank you so much for the heart and
soul that you put into the drumming support group. Not to mention time and energy. You have a wonderful gift to be able
to facilitate a grieving group. Please thank Tom your co-facilitator for me also. You both radiated peace and kindness,
and helped us along our journey through this terrible wilderness.
With deepest gratitude,"
