Testimonials

 

"It shook many parts of my inner world loose and helped me learn more things about myself and the way in which I move in this reality and connect with others.  I was catapulted into life with a new sense, or with a more open awareness of my senses... life feels a little lighter and I breathe with more joy and calm.  The workshop [also] showed me just how important community is."

"Experiência fantástica! No começo foi difícil, muita concentração, determinação e paciência. É realmente uma experiência fora da caixa, simples porém desafiadora, mexe em vários aspectos do corpo, mente e emocional. O grupo ajudou muito também dando força para que continuassemos todos juntos num só som. Recomendo para aqueles que querem deixar um pouco as palavras de lado e permitir que o sentir venha a tona. Agradeço a oportunidade de tal movimento, das risadas, suor e união! Obrigado Cannon e Susana, que continuem a realizar esse lindo trabalho."

"My mind was sometimes still as water and I could see the reflection of myself so clearly, without judging or thinking. Just accept the moment, accept yourself.
Be in the moment in your beautiful self, let the connection be."

"Uma experiência muito especial, em muitas dimensões. Pela música, pela auto-percepção, pela ligação com o grupo, pela criação conjunta. Instrumentos especiais, que nos conectam connosco mesmos e com os outros. E um mestre com o saber próprio de quem o é: atento, paciente e estimulador."

"...an opportunity to experience the fun and life-giving energy of traditional African drumming and its ability to help us remember the rhythm we each carry inside of us and our connection to the bigger rhythms of life and the people around us... the perfect place to come and release any misled beliefs you may carry that you can't hold a beat or keep a rhythm. Your very heartbeat says otherwise. The drums provided me with the vibration needed to connect my hands with my heartbeat..."

"O meu encontro com estes ritmos trouxe-me uma sensação de familiaridade e empoderamento que tornaram esta experiência muito nutridora e apaziguadora. Acredito que acima de tudo pela sacralidade e ancestralidade dos ritmos mas também pelo espírito de comunidade e família que co-criamos juntos. Um verdadeiro alimento para a minha alma! E nutrida, mais integrada na minha paisagem e com esperança na Criação de culturas, comunidades e famílias saudáveis continuo ligada a esta medicina que é a música. Viva! "
