On February 9th, Greenbrier Academy students held an African Drumming workshop for Osteopathic Medical students at the Osteopathic Medical School in Lewisburg, WV. While GBA students practice drumming on a daily basis, they found it a true delight to give back to Greenbrier Academy's community in West Virginia with this special gift.
Students taught the community the traditional rhythms in a way that facilitates stress relief, is fun, generates feelings of joy, and feeds the soul during the Medical students' stressful schooling. By sharing four different rhythms to the 15 medical students who attended, GBA students were able to impart the intention and meaning behind each healing rhythm.
Drumming is a powerful tool to create a sense of togetherness and community which may alleviate feelings of anxiety, depression, and social isolation. Its profound therapeutic effect is deeply integrated into GBA's student culture. It is always a treat to share these benefits with the local community.
