What’s Your Story? If you don’t like it then let’s re-write it!
Facilitated by Nicola Burnell, Publisher of CapeWomenOnline Magazine
Become the author of your own future in this 6 week workshop that focuses on the story of your life. This very powerful process is not all about writing - there will be fun exercises and projects to work on too. Learn tools that will help you to identify what blocks you from pursuing the life you have always imagined you could have. Here's what former students have to say about this class:
"During this class I let go of the fear, self-doubt and cloudy view that had blocked my path. I now feel empowered, centered and confident." Johanne K.
"Nicola provided us with possibilities. In her class she empowered us, encouraged us to stretch beyond our old confinements. Thank you, thank you, thank you!" Diane McD.

Women's Drum Circle
Drumming is energizing as well as calming, and brings people together in peace! In our women's drum circle, we will practice playing the djembe and dun dun drums of West Africa. We will learn hand techniques as well as play specific rhythms as an ensemble. In the circle, women will also have time to jam, play creatively and explore drum meditation exercises. The emphasis will be on ease, fun, feeling the rhythm and playing together as a group of women. Led by Tara Murphy and Sue Landers.
May 29 -- August 28
WEDNESDAYS at 5:30-6:30 pm
BEGINNING African Drum Workshops
Experience the drums of Africa! Drumming in community brings enjoyment and happiness, as well as increased health and well being. Issa Coulibaly of Mali, West Africa teaches a beginning African drum class once a month for all ages and abilities. Students will learn the hand techniques and simple rhythms of the djembe and dun dun drums, as well as play together as ensemble. By the end of class, you won't want to stop playing!
Issa Coulibaly began studying the djembe and dun dun when he was 11 in his home city of Bamako, Mali. As his skill and reputation as a multi-instumental player, vocalist and arranger grew, Issa toured Africa and Europe extensively before emigrating to America. He continues to travel from Maine to Puerto Rico facilitating retreats and performing as the lead drummer and musical director for a variety of African dance and drum troupes, including Cape Cod African Dance & Drum.
