I guess my first question should be about how you got involved in drumming.

I got started when I was your age, actually a little bit younger, and they used to have concerts on Sunday afternoons by the monument, and on the far side of the Cambridge common there were people playing congas. After the concerts were over, and I'd get bored or something, and eventually end up at the drummers.

on Goddess, Spirituality and Drumming

Would you say there is a Goddess religion in the United States today?

Well, the short answer is yes, absolutely. The slightly more complicated answer is there's not A Goddess religion, that is it's not a single religion in the way that we tend to think about religions that have labels. It's got a lot of different diverse elements.

Originally, I had registered for Universal Heartbeat because I thought it would be interesting to take a music class (something that I haven’t had since elementary school), because percussion was something that I haven’t been exposed to (I grew up playing mostly stringed instruments), and so that I wouldn’t go stir-crazy from all of the science courses that I’ve been taking. Throughout the run of the semester, though, I’ve discovered many new facets to an instrument that seems to grow more alien to me as I learn more and more of its cultural, spiritual, and therapeutic roles.
