Dr. Barry Bittman and Dr. Bruce Perry; our Circles of Rhythm Healing Drum Circles are a new therapeutic tool for trauma, anxiety and depression. With 20 years of experience, we are the only full service Drum Circle Company in Canada.

Drum Circles are being incorporated into the workplace for team building and stress relief, into the health sector for mental and physical health and into the community for fun and celebration!

Simply put, Drum Circles are a tool for  the well-being of our selves and our world.

Since COVID-19, Julien believes Circles of Rhythm has an increasingly important role to play, helping bring people together.

What is a Drum Circle?

The Integrated Community Drum Circle (ICDC) utilizes rhythms, drums, and teachings from cultures across the globe. The pursuit of balance is the guiding principle of both the ICDC Facilitator, and (hopefully) its participant!
