Over the course of several months, E.J. Gold taught an amazing course in how to use drumming for your Work. This included the beginning basics, advancing through healing drums and using the drum for advanced vortex work.
These classes are available anywhere in the world -- all that was required was a connection. We had folks from Norway, Spain, France, Germany, England, Brazil, Argentina, New York, San Fransisco, and even Des Moines from time to time. This was the ultimate in a distance learning program.
It was every Sunday from 8:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. Pacific time. This drumming instruction was much more than a class -- you could call it an experience. These classes went way beyond the basics of drumming delving deep into the nature of sound and rhythm.

I highly recommend this collection of work. It doesn't matter if you are a drummer or not. It does matter if your are "working on self or not." This teaching is work in other dimensions. It is not earthian. It has nothing to do with life on planet earth. This is a real "Gold" mine.

"When I first started working with my drum I had no idea how much I did not know. You would think, a drum, yea, all I have to do is hit this thing with my hands. Far from the truth. After watching this specific collection of DVDs I began to understand that there is magic in the sound, in the drum and in the connection between the drum and the drummer(s). They way you touch/hit the drum counts...so much to say but it is all said in the DVDs. E.J. Gold is really giving it away but alas, the work is for each individual to actually do. And when it's "happening" there is no doubt."
I find it difficult to work only with the loop without seeing what EJ's hands are doing (when there is any kind of change).
One thing for sure is practice, practice practice, as per usual is the key.
For me, the DVD really really helps make sense of the loop. Things like: "Why would I do this?" It is all explained in the DVDs.
