Earth Day Celebration: Free to Be Me Drum Circle w/Mamapalooza

We were very fortunate to have an opportunity to join in a drum circle at the 40th Celebration of Earth Day on the Santa Monica Promenade on the 17th of April.

Have you been to a drum circle? It’s quite an experience, listen to Sabina as she explains how it benefits you and helps you “get out of your head” and feel the rhythm.
