The Boulder River Rhythm Retreat

June 23 @ 2:00 pm - June 26 @ 2:00 pm MDT

Come join Drum Brothers and friends for a special 4 day retreat celebrating rhythm and community! Our time together will include rhythm classes in the West African tradition, song circles, the option to build a drum, and African dance classes. Each evening we’ll gather for a community rhythm circle and in the mornings, we’ll be treated to a musical wake up. Instructors for the event will be Matthew & Michael Marsolek and Tracy Topp of Drum Brothers. We’ll also have a special evening session exploring contemplative rhythms and melodic music.

Pricing and registration will be available on March 1st. After that date, visit… to register.

All ability levels are welcome at this event. “If you have a heartbeat, you have rhythm”. The drums call us to come together and celebrate this life and all we’ve been given. There’s nothing like having 4 days to enjoy the company of new friends and to take the rhythms deeper than ever. This is a time to get recharged with rhythm and community!

Participants can register either for rhythm exploration (which includes hand drumming classes for all levels and dance and movement classes) or drum building. Those who choose to build a drum will be making a 12″x 24″ ashiko drum with a cedar or hardwood shell and a goat skin head. These dynamic hand drums are perfect to play the variety of West African rhythms Drum Brothers teach. Drum building registrants will attend the regular class schedule when not assembling their drum.

We’ll be staying at beautiful Camp Mimanagish on the Boulder River south of Big Timber, Montana. The water will be high this time of year and in the evening, you’ll hear the rumbling of the rocks rolling on the river bottom! Weather permitting; we’ll meet outside as much as we can. Of course, as with all of our retreats, we’ll be fed tasty cuisine to feed body, mind, and spirit. There will also be free time to enjoy the pristine scenery of the area. For lodging, participants will be staying in the many cabins available at Camp Mimanagish. There will be separate men’s and woman’s cabins and some limited designated spaces for couples and families.
