Katy Gaughan has consistently received rave reviews for her dynamic facilitation of drum circles for the Shalem Spiritual Guidance Program.  Her session on Praise, Thanksgiving and Movement Meditation has been prayerful, engaging, well organized, and profound for the participants.  She has helped the participants experience the oneness flowing through diversity in concrete, tangible ways while also having great fun and learning more about the gifts of drumming.  She is a remarkably gifted facilitator of drum circles who easily connects to participants of all ages and backgrounds and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to offer others.  I cannot recommend her highly enough!
