DRUMeditation with Taylor
YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS EXPERIENCE! 😍
We are extremely excited to have a one of a kind drum performer, author & educator, Michael J. Taylor, at Rising Lotus to lead a 2 hour immersive DRUMeditation.
Join us for an experience in sound. Created by Taylor, the DRUMeditation is a combination of guided meditation and rhythmic environments in the form of drums, bells, shakers, flutes, voices, etc., by Taylor, resulting in a powerful transformative experience designed to open your mind and body, so that you may identify and be receptive to the internal and external healing you need to do.
