Diversity Training Through Drumming? Umm...hello?
What does that even mean? And how can one learn to deal with diversity through the simple act of beating a drum? I happened across the website www.ubdrumcircles.com today while doing some Administrative Assistant research…and I was amazed. Could the simple act of drumming be so effective?
So, Diversity Training Through Drumming…what does that mean...really? Apparently, Christine Stevens, founder of UpBeat Drum Circles, believes that by gathering a group of people and bringing them together with one language, the language of rhythm (drum), we can begin to understand one another at our most basic levels…as well as at our highest levels. There is a great bit more detailed information on the subject here, but I have to say that viewing her published client list really gave me cause to explore more...if these huge corporations were getting on board...there must be some research into its effectiveness for them to hire her for their events.
After watching some video’s of Christine’s events and reading through her website, I have to wonder...should Diversity Training Through Drumming be fit into the schedules of our world’s leaders? Maybe it would help them to bridge the language gaps and finally come together with a common goal…one of peace, health and wellness, both spiritually and economically, for our world.
Big box real estate corprations and NAR should look into this for their events. Are you a corporation looking to bring your employees together? I think that Christine’s Diversity Training Through Drumming would be great for a corporate event or retreat…perhaps you should get her on your 2011 calendar today while she still has spots open…I noticed that her schedule seems to be filling up already! Apparently this helps wholistically...the Mind, Body, Spirit and Community.
