About the speaker
Greg Whitt is a facilitator and educator whose programs are all about applied philosophy; bridging timeless wisdom traditions with modern society. Rather than a merely cognitive understanding of these principles, he takes a hands-on approach for lasting impact. He uses group drumming to highlight indigenous values. Concepts like balance, celebration, connection to nature, gratitude, inclusion, positivity, respect, ritual, service to others, and unity all serve as positive examples for healthy, happy, and productive lifestyles for modern society.
Greg has received three competitive Regional Artist Project Grants, two for the study of folkloric music in the Caribbean and one to support specialized work in wellness settings. With a graduate certificate in Transformative Leadership from the Maryland University of Integrative Health, his programs are actually hands-on philosophy about how we can live, work, and play well together in community, only they’re cleverly disguised as music. And they’re delivered as interactive and engaging fun for corporations, congregations, communities, and classrooms.
Greg is an Air Force veteran. He is a past president of the international Drum Circle Facilitators Guild. Greg is also the founder of the Raleigh Drum Circle community gathering that met for many years at Lake Johnson and for many more at Pullen Park. He recently presented at the annual Percussive Arts Society International Convention. You can find him online at www.drumforchange.com
