Natural Awakenings Greater Boston - Rhode Island

A Rhythm Spa Event for Women

Monique Morimoto, co-founder of SoulWorks Rhythm, and Patsy Onatah of the Humble Drum, will present a Rhythm Spa for Women from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., October 24, at the Mother Brook Arts and Community Center, in Dedham. The event offers rhythm-based opportunities to overcome the inner critic, de-stress, rejuvenate, move the body, create heart connection, build community and have fun.

“Rhythm is fundamental to life, starting with an infant’s heartbeat, but the distractions that life presents make it easy to lose touch with one’s personal rhythm,” says Morimoto. “This disconnection can lead to aimlessness, stress, unhappiness and negative self-talk. Drumming is a simple, fun way to reconnect to one’s personal rhythm.”

Morimoto says that group drumming has been shown to reduce stress, boost the immune system and increase happiness and connection. “We want women to know about the benefits of group drumming, and no prior drumming experience is needed to participate,” she notes. “This modality is accessible to any woman who wants to explore new possibilities for herself in a safe, sacred space with other women.” The fee includes playshops, lunch, a goodie bag and instruments.

Cost: $99/early bird price until Sept. 26; $124 afterwards. Location: Mother Brook Arts and Community Center, 123 High St., Dedham. For more information and to register, call or email Patsy Onatah at 207-206-5524 or [email protected], or Monique Morimoto at 978-687-4069 or Visit
