the rhythm path
The whole world and we ourselves are permeated by rhythms,
like day and night, the seasons, the ebb and flow, the lunar cycle, our breath, our
heartbeat and the cell movements. Life itself is rhythm: circles and
repetition, movement and change, activity and passivity. That vitality
is the basis of all life, if it is lost and gives way to rigidity, to linearity,
life withers away, becomes gray and meaningless.
So let's dance and make music. This allows us
to come into contact and resonance with the rhythms around and within us. Through
playing drums we can experience the harmonizing, relaxing and
beneficial effects of rhythms.
Playing the drum brings us back to the fundamental forces of life,
it strengthens and nourishes us, provides energy and also trains concentration
and encourages our creativity.
