Frame Drum Wisdom is dedicated to bringing the power of sound vibration and music for well-being and healing back into the hands of the individual, their family, community and organizations they serve. Join us as we explore the mystery of sound through the ancient wisdom of the frame drum. Together we will learn to sound, sing and chant into the frame drum creating a beautiful, “other worldly” resonance; learn to drum over others creating a stress reducing, calming effect; and just play together finding new ways to interact with the drum and each other.
“I believe that we each have healing power within our very own voices. Singing, toning, chanting is not just for the masters of music, the people deemed by society to be the official entertainers...it is for everyone. It is accessible wherever we are, wherever we go. The key is to help people realize that their own authentic voice matters, first and foremost and then show them how they can use it to be well and stay healthy.”
– Karen Renée Robb, Founder of Frame Drum Wisdom
With Charlene Stafford, PT and Tucker Furbush, DPT, CSCS.

We will teach you a pelvice workout.
Charlene and Tucker will also be available for Functional Movement screening and Injury screening after the Woman's Health Eduction session.

Steve Schriemer is a Michigan native with a passion for people, music and Qi Gong. Growing up Steve always had an interest in natural health and alternative medicine, and after going to school for Music Engineering and Classical Voice performance, he attended the Naturopathic Institute of Therapies and Education in Mount Pleasant. There he found that his understanding of frequencies and vibration in sound recording carried over into vibrational medicine, and that his training in classical singing posture had ties to ancient health and breathing practices. Introduced to Qi Gong at the institute, he quickly fell in love with it, practicing movements and postures for hours on end. Wanting to take his practice to the next level, he trained under Qi Gong Master Lee Holden to earn three different levels of teaching certification and continues to train under Master Lee to deepen his understanding of qi and it’s applications. Steve loves sharing his passion with others through teaching and it really shows in his enthusiasm and compassion.
