6pm Drum Circle with Matt Mikeska
Matt has been playing drums and exploring rhythms from around the world for over 20 years. A husband and father who both owns Ravaila’s Restaurant in Blairsville and acts as a coordinator of community outreach and sits on the board of directors of My New Leaf, a non-profit recovery community organization, that serves those suffering with substance use disorder and their families. Matt has used drumming and rhythm to not only bring a greater sense of peace and connection to his own life but also seeks to bring the transformative power of the drum to his community. Having facilitated drum circles and rhythm workshops large and small at events and organizations in our area for years he hopes to continue to offer these services to the community.
Rhythm is what gives from to the boundless spirit and energy of all that is within and beyond our human experience. From the movement of celestial bodies, to the changing seasons, the repeating cycles within nature and the beating heart of each one of us. Rhythm is a common thread that runs through everything, down to the smallest atoms that are vibrating wit the beat of creation. The drum, being far more than merely an instrument is a tool that is simple and accessible to anyone who approaches. The drum acts as a point of contact between the rhythm within and the universal rhythm.
