In addition to ongoing frame drum, djembe, and devotional music gatherings, here are some highlights of years past.  In addition, I have been a regular presenter for Peripole Inc Musc Therapy and Music Educator Conferences across the nation, have guided youth Rites of Passage in Nature settings for years, have been initiated in the lineage of the Way of Council through The Ojai Foundation and continue to guide Council in Colorado as well as CA, and have presented at many other music festivals, retreats, etc.
