Testimonials from Wellness Rhythm Circle participants
“While Katy is a genius at orchestrating large numbers of people to drum together (eg 700 at the Washington National Cathedral), it is such a pleasure and privilege to be with her in a smaller circle. We connect to our own hearts, the heartbeat of Mother Earth, each other and the Cosmos, in a way that is both intimate and transcendent, meanwhile learning more about drumming technique and gaining confidence in our own abilities.” – Elizabeth
“Katy is a remarkable presence! Drumming, dancing, meditating and bonding at her Wellness Rhythm Circles brings you to a calm and invigorated place of being. A gift of healing, a place of rejoicing.” – Aileen
“The introductory session was great. Katy is a skilled instructor who brings out the enthusiasm and engagement from the group. She also relates drumming to other mindfulness practices and it was all around fun!” – Sonya
Katy brings a rich joy and spiritual depth to the amazing art of drumming! Her leadership in a group promotes an increased self-awareness while building community relationships through a shared rhythm experience. A drum circle is a creative expression of energy, harmony and hope. No musical experience is necessary and all age groups benefit. Katy has helped our church build collaborative relationships with staff, increased energy and healing amongst our caregivers, and created space for cooperation and understanding with our youth and lay leadership.

At our Health Equity Drum Circle, Katy helped to facilitate our attempt at the world largest drum circle! Katy was perfect for the task. She brings unbounded energy and enthusiasm to everything she does. We are so thankful to have Katy on our team. She has been a tireless supporter of our work to promote equity in health and well-being in Maryland.
Susan Racine Passmore, PhD Project Director, Maryland Center for Health Equity for event Health Equity Drum Circle: Drum Beats for Health and Wellness, April 2014
Katy is living her calling. She brings drum circles to communities, healing retreats, 4th of July gatherings, businesses and non-profits to offer the power of the drum. Under Katy’s mindful presence she teaches beats, raises the energy high and can bring a room to stillness and peace. Her facilitation is flawless, filled with Love and a Joy to witness. I highly recommend her services.
