A drum circle in the United States is a noisy and fun, family friendly event, where people come together in order to share their spirit by entraining rhythmically as a percussion ensemble. They empower each other in the act of celebrating community and life through rhythm and music. People of all levels of musical expertise come together and share their rhythmical spirit with whatever drums and percussion they bring to the event. Everyone who comes and participates has something to offer the circle, and any one is welcome.
People of all levels of musical expertise come together in a community drum circle and share their rhythmical spirit with whatever drums and percussion they bring to the event. They don't have to be a drummer to participate. They don't even have to have a drum. They can play a plastic water bottle turned upside down with the neck cut off. They can shake a soda can with rocks in it or hit two sticks together. It is enough that they are in the circle and participating.
Corporate Team Building Drum Circles
Drumming has been around for thousands of years. Virtually every culture on earth has a history of community drumming being used to unify the group. Different cultures produced different instruments and rhythms. Your company is a microcosm culture that can use the same approach to unify the group and improve their interactions, resulting in improved productivity.
Learning to let go of self involvement in order to synchronize with others is the essence. Not everyone can or will play the drums the same way, just as they don’t do their jobs exactly the same way. And those slight differences, if done from each person’s strengths, are what make the musical result magical. People learn that playing/working together is something that is its own reward because the results are beyond what any individual can do.
Sacred Rhythms Interactive Team Building Drum Circles can be extremely effective for companies that want to enhance the generation of new ideas and better teamwork. When people discover that they can collectively produce a good sound without any musical training or background, they start to realize that they can be more effective at work by putting their heads together and working as a team.
For many years, companies have strive to implement the concepts of empowering employees to find and implement better ways of accomplishing work processes. Deming, one of the world’s foremost authorities on quality assurance and employee productivity, was also one of the first to recognize the fact that it is the employee working at the lowest level who knows the most about how to improve the flow of work. The stumbling block has always been how to convince workers to speak up and propose changes and then find ways to make those changes happen to achieve optimal results. Drum circles provide a unique and highly effective solution to this quandary.
Sacred Rhythms Interactive Team Building is one in which the participants are encouraged to improvise within the rhythm structure provided by the facilitator. It is a direct parallel to the team improvising solutions to the group of tasks that the team needs to accomplish. Drumming immediately reduces stress and breaks down barriers between the participants. The process then brings the group back together in a nonverbal form of team interaction. The group learns how to listen to what is going on and responds to it in a way that adds to the total product. Once people do this in a setting that is fun, they can then carry it back to their regular work tasks, resulting in better communications and increased effectiveness.
