Baltimore Drum Church (BDC) is a live, group experience, where the drum serves as a vehicle to connect with the divine spirit that is inside each and everyone of us. Our Gatherings offer an opportunity to think, meditate or even pray in your own way, while riding a rhythm wave to awaken a spiritual connection. Drum church is not a “drum circle”, but a guided shamanic journeying experience through communal drumming. All we ask is for you to bring your sense of wonderment and a drum. A limited number of drums will be made available for those who desire to drum but have none.

Frequency is rhythm and rhythm is frequency.  By combining specific wavelengths of light, pure audio tones and drum rhythms, BDC creates vibrational resonance in attunement with your body’s chakras.  Through this unique meditative drumming experience you will discover yourself like never before while journeying upon trance rhythms of the communal gathering.

Co-Founders of Baltimore Drum Church

Eric Sterling Willison and Daveed Korup co-founded Baltimore Drum Church in the Spring of 2016.  This collaborative effort stems from Eric’s shamanic writings, teachings and meditations infused with Daveed’s Tao Te Drum life lessons and his passion for drumming. Combined together the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
