Event description
Drum, dance, and sing your way into a feel-good trance via rhythm!

About this Event

In this workshop, we will have the opportunity to use our hands, feet, bodies & minds to connect to ourselves and one another.

We will:

* Learn how to understand rhythm with the mind & feel rhythm with the body

* Combine simple drumming patterns with singing & dancing to let go of inhibition and enjoy the present moment

* Cultivate expressive musical confidence & creativity

* Groove our way into embodied awareness together

This workshop is for anyone who wants to have a more mindful and musical relationship to their own body! An ideal workshop for musicians who are curious about non-western rhythms, and movers and singers interested in exploring the world of improvisation.

What is RhythMandala?

RhythMandala is an ever-evolving body of work which connects people to themselves and one another via movement, song, and dance - approachable for people of all ages and abilities.

RhythMandala events are a 3-way cross between a drum circle, a dance class, and a song circle.

This Workshop is Facilitated By:

Ryan Moore, Founder of RhythMandala

(Hi, I’m Ryan.) From an early age I was distressed by the separation I felt from both my own body and other people. In public school in Chicago I found my way into more connection through choir, dance, and the performing arts. After highschool, I attended The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in NYC and various dance trainings scattered across the US.

In my early twenties I settled in Chicago again and dove into hiphop and house music. Body percussion, spoken word, and drum circles deepened my understanding of how movement and music can bring people together. I co-founded an arts community, DJ-ed weddings, joined an Educational Rhythmic Ensemble, and kept learning. My late twenties launched me overseas to study the TaKeTiNa Rhythm Process in Australia.

This 2 year training opened my eyes to how exceedingly joyful a well-led group process can be, how much healing can happen in deep rhythmic connection, and how the potential for people to be in rhythm together is grounded in human evolution, neurology and physiology. Today I live in Oakland, CA and offer 1-on-1 and large group RhythMandala sessions, both privately and at the Globe Institute of Sound and Consciousness.

If you have any more specific questions about either my background or about working with me, I’m happy to answer them: feel free to email me at ryan@rhythmandala.com.
