The Business of Drumming in Business

BDIB Live:

7 Video Conference Sessions | Starts Sept. 26

Super-charge your spirit and progress toward your facilitation business goals with the Peer Power of BDIB Live.

We'll meet in 7 video conference calls starting September 26. After the November 21 call, we'll take a holiday break, and return January 9th and rev up our New Year's "Get Out There!" energy during the final 2 calls.

In each call, we’ll go deeper with each subject, particularly into members’ practical questions and experiences about what works best for them. Together we’ll pace through the program, exchange advice and ideas, resolve specific challenges, and celebrate each others’ progress.

Go beyond the BDIB Core — waayy beyond

BDIB Live are discussions that help you bring the core material of the online course to life.

Learn about the BDIB Core course here.

Before each session, you'll review the relevant module and consider a few discussion questions I'll send you the week before. We'll look at people's specific situations, both with short Q&A and as longer "case studies."

I’ll have more material to add each time, but you’ll learn as much or more from each other!

You’ll identify your logical next-step, doable actions that will take your business forward over the next 2 weeks.

And yes, the recordings will be posted here on Teachable so you can watch whenever you want.

Designing experiential learning programs for adults has been “my thing” for over 20 years. I’ve been gratified to set the stage for life-changing shifts for thousands of participants in academic, corporate, personal growth, and drumming groups.

My life before drum circles was in the business world, where I learned a lot, but which ultimately led me to a soul-crushing dead end.

Luckily, I discovered drum circles. I was astounded at the depth of experience, learning, and transformative potential of group drumming. I’ve been enthralled and immersed ever since.

I am part of the world-wide community of drum circle facilitators (DCFs) whose “hub” was created by the work of Arthur Hull. Arthur’s teachings, travels, dedicated rhythm evangelism, and focus on community building has built a powerful network of “rhythm practitioners” serving groups of all kinds.

I have been fortunate to meet, visit, and work with hundreds of practicing DCFs at various trainings, conferences, and on my “Drumabout” travels. Long fascinated by how people come to this work from such wildly different fields, I’ve tracked “what works” as colleagues develop their DCF businesses and careers.

Over the years, I have helped design programs for Drum Circle Facilitators Guild conferences and Arthur Hull / Village Music Circles.

My DCF business is RhythmLift, based in San Diego. I am also a creative partner with Jú Linares and her DCF business in São Paulo, Brazil, Ritmo Expansão.

And I love helping people help more people drum!
