Drum Circles

This is currently a work in progress, but with your help we’ll continue to expand this list! 
It’s our goal here at Mother Rhythm Drums to spread the positive energy of rhythm and drumming. This includes spreading the word about drum circles across the United States. 
With that in mind, if you attend a drum circle or are a facilitator, we encourage you to submit information on your drumming circle by filling out the form at the bottom of this page. Please provide the specific location, as well as the days and times it’s held. We will NOT disclose your personal information unless you otherwise request that we do so. If you do choose to have any personal contact information listed, please be aware it will be posted for public viewing on this page.
