Welcome to 'Wright Rhythms™ Fitness and Wellness' site.
My name is Karen Wright and I am a drum circle facilitator. I am trained and certified in both Health Rhythms®, and Drums Alive®. I just finished Australia's Holyoake's Drumbeat.
I enjoy rhythms of any kind, Steel Pan Playing, Taiko drumming and love to create.
I started 'Wright Rhythms™ Fitness and Wellness' because I want the world to be healthy.
I help make that happen through drumming, in my little corner of the world.
I challenged myself and my village to be one with the spirit of the drum and to have respect and unity for drums and drummers all over the world. My village extends as far away as the loudest drum can be heard, which I'm finding out is pretty far.
Although there are many attributes that make for a powerful drummer, we can only strive to attain them, since many of us aren't born with such great qualities. We are however, each born with a heart beat that gives us a great start in learning to drum and that gives us a natural 'built-in' rhythm. The rest we simply work at enhancing. Drumming requires a combination of discipline of body, strength, power, stamina, mind, self control and spirit. It requires communication, manners, courtesy, respect, harmony, musical skills, rhythm, expression, and unity. Many of these we simply strive to attain, even in our daily lives.
Remo Belli once said; "It’s time to stop thinking of the drum as just a musical instrument. Start thinking of it as a unifying tool for every family, a wellness tool for every retiree, and an educational tool for every classroom.” I agree with Remo and I'd like to add that it is also the most satisfying instrument to play that can unite a village and heal the world.
Taiko Grand Master Tanaka said most people just listen to drumming. He said; " I want people to not only hear the sound, but also watch the sound, see the sound, and feel the sound."
My village is becoming one with the drum. We play by feeling communication with the spirit of the drums, each other, and the world. Come join us in the challenge to help make the world a better place, since drumming is meant to be shared and creates fitness health, wellness, wonderful relationships, and oneness.
