Following her husband Izzy's diagnosis of lung cancer, Doris longed for clarity and meaning. Through the course of his battle with cancer and death in 2002, she began a search for Spirit. Doris learned the power of prayer. She discovered and grew increasingly committed to developing a special relationship...a connection to Spirit. She followed her quest with determination which eventually led her to express that relationship with Spirit through drumming.
Through her energy, talent and creativity Doris brought RedEagle Drums to an amazing place...a place where she now can share Spirit through drums and drumming. She hosts monthly drum circles at her home and locations throughout the area. She has been an advocate for the healing powers of drumming and has introduced drums at nursing homes, a dementia unit, a teen rehabilitation facility, VA care giver support group, cancer support groups, as well as local schools and churches. Doris has also been instrumental in getting drum circles started in several locations around MN.
