The Brazilian Soul: Dance and Drumming

Sep 08 - 10, 2017 Begins in 1 month
with Cida Vieira & Mestre Beiçola

Drumming inspires people to connect. Nationalities and individual agendas disappear; what remains is the grounding presence of our transformed selves—our spirits lightened and empowered. Join Cida Vieira and Mestre Beicola on this journey of joy straight into the heart of Brazilian dance and music. This hands-on (and “feet-on”) workshop explores the instruments, rhythms, music, and the samba dance jeitinho brasieliro (“of the Brazilian way”) in an inclusive and safe environment.



A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
