Every drumming event Ashley facilitates there is a question that is asked and answered, "What can I do to serve the circle?" In watching the group's connection, listening deeply to the rhythms at play, and feeling the energy of the group, Ashley facilitates the circle to take them on their our rhythmical journey, to elevate the group's musicality, and deliver them to their own rhythmic bliss. Music and rhythm have always been a part of Ashley's life, and she is excited to share the joy and empowerment that it can bring with all of you!
