Mystic Sanctuary Monthly Drum Circle

On Friday, Nov. 23, 6:30-7:30 p.m., Mystic Sanctuary (2805 Bridgeport Way W., #23, University Place) hosts its monthly drum circle. No is experience required. They have some drums and noise makers or you can bring your own. Everyone is welcome.
A drum circle is any group of people playing (usually) hand-drums and percussion in a circle. They are distinct from a drumming group or troupe in that the drum circle is an end in itself rather than preparation for a performance. They can range in size from a handful of players to circles with thousands of participants.
According to Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart, “people gather to drum in drum ‘circles’ with others from the surrounding community. The drum circle offers equality because there is no head or tail. It includes people of all ages. The main objective is to share rhythm and get in tune with each other and themselves.”
