As a child, I may have always been longing for our family’s infrequent trips down the shore or the occasional reunion picnic, but as an adult, I prefer to spend my vacations and holidays surrounded by smaller groups of good friends, music & conversation. Since most of my friends are drummers or musicians of some sort, summer retreats focused around drumming or even just a simple porch jam is enough to make me very happy.
Though I make a conscious effort to enjoy each day as it comes, I can’t help but get excited for the Summer Rhythm Renewal retreat later this month hosted by my friend Jim Donovan in the beautiful mountains of central Pennsylvania. I consider this “going home” to the biggest and best family reunion ever. This will be my 2nd year on the faculty teaching my workshop entitled, “Mandala :: An Artful Meditation” and my 5th year back over all. It’s just so wonderful….
What is the Rhythm Renewal? Listen to what a few of my friends have to say about it and maybe someday I’ll see you there!
