There will also be group yoga and meditation to hone focus and relaxation. Nighttime activities include drumming around a bonfire under the stars. Room and board is included in the fee and participants will be spoiled with incredible vegan/vegetarian food from the organic garden on the premises.
For anyone new to dumbek, it’s recommended that you work with Raquy’s instructional kits, Dumbek Fever I, II and III - Available Here -prior to coming to the retreat.
