We'd like to invite you to join Drum Brothers and friends for this special 5 day retreat. Our time together will include rhythm classes, song circles, the option to build a drum, and daily yoga and African dance classes. Each evening we'll gather for a community rhythm circle and in the mornings, we'll be treated to a musical wakeup. Instructors for the event will be Matthew & Michael Marsolek and Lawrence Duncan of Drum Brothers and Tracy Topp.

All ability levels are welcome at this event. "If you have a heart beat, you have rhythm". The drum is calling us to come together and celebrate the precious moments of life we've been given. There's nothing like having 5 days to enjoy the company of new friends and to take the rhythms deeper than ever. This is a time to get recharged with rhythm and community!

Participants can register either for rhythm exploration (which includes hand drumming classes for all levels and dance and movement classes) or drum building. Those who choose to build a drum will be making a 12"x 24" ashiko drum with a cedar or hardwood shell and a goat skin head. These dynamic hand drums are perfect to play the variety of West African rhythms Drum Brothers teach. Drum building registrants will attend the regular class schedule when not assembling the drum.

We'll be staying at beautiful Camp Mimanagish on the Boulder River. The water will be high this time of year and in the evening you can hear the rumbling of the rocks rolling on the river bottom! Weather permitting; we'll meet outside as much as we can. Of course, as with all of our retreats, we'll be fed great food. There will also be free time to enjoy the pristine scenery of the area. For lodging, participants will be bunking together in the many fine cabins available at Camp Mimanagish. There are separate men's and woman's cabins and some limited space for couples and families on a first come first serve basis.

We look forward to seeing you this June.
