Drum Circle Facilitators

This list has a a huge membership from all over the globe. Discussion focuses on all aspects of drumcircle facilitation (DCF) working with a wide variety of populations. The uses, challenges, and dynamics of drum circles are discussed for groups ranging from school-age kids to special needs elders to youth-at-risk to corporate work groups.

You can ask questions of, share experiences with, and offer advice to, members of the group. If you are new to drum circle facilitation, the book "Drum Circle Spirit" by Arthur Hull will give you a good introduction. It will also help you decode what might seem like jargon used in list messages to describe things that happen in facilitated drum circles.
