Drumming Sounds Facilitated Ceremonial Drum Circle
Join us for an experience with music and ceremony that crosses the ethnocentric divide and brings us all closer to our indigenous heritage and ancestral medicine of sacred drumming in a FUN JUDGEMENT FREE ENVIRONMENT. You will hear stories of the power of group drumming and you will reconnect with the rhythm inside of everything connecting us back to source of energy.  This is not a Drumming Class but instead a beginner friendly facilitated experience with music. If you have not explored music as a wellness and ceremonial practice or the ability that every person has to create and transmute energy through music this is great opportunity to learn from one of the most seasoned drum circle communities in the nation. Drums and instruments provided or bring your own, all ages welcome. We will sing fun songs make up new ones and chant to the AIR WATER FIRE EARTH.

DJ Drez - dance party
Saturday night afterparty! If you have an All Access Pass, PTSD + All Access, Saturday Day Pass, or SYF Lite pass just wave your bracelet on the way in the door. Opted for a punchcard? Have friends who want to join? $15 at the door. Looking forward to this! We will be at Steakhouse 89 with additional grooves by Secret Sessions Sedona from 8:30pm-11:30pm

DJ Drez’s music has been moving bodies for more than two decades. His sound is an organic blend of mystical hip-hop, reggae roots and Indian raga that has been known to instigate an ecstatic dance party one instant, and soothe a group into a meditative savasana the next. If you’re a fan of Drez, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the mysterious, seductive voice of Marti Nikko gracing dozens of the albums, tracks and remixes he’s released over his prolific career. Nikko’s innate spark illuminates Explorers of Infinity. Her soul-soaked vocals dance and play in the spaces impeccably arranged by DJ Drez, highlighting a natural chemistry developed and enhanced through years of performing, living and loving together. The result is a beautiful, eclectic collection of music made for all sacred movement and moods. In addition to making music, Marti teaches yoga and pilates in Los Angeles where she and Drez live and love their 14-year-old son and newborn baby girl.

DJ Drez is a sound pioneer. With an ear for cutting edge sonic ambiance, a finger on the pulse of music that makes bodies move, and the vision and skill to obliterate genre and boundary with his own trademark sound and production, Drez has skyrocketed to international acclaim from the dancehall to the yoga shala.
