Drumming is a part of our ancestral heritage. Cultures all over the world have used the drum in their everyday lives. The call of the drum is unmistakable and awakens something ancient and ancestral within us. It quiets the thinking brain and makes room for experiencing what exists outside of us. The drum beat is the pulse, the heart of the universe and helps us connect with and understand the mystery and power and the Spirit in all things. The drum produces a highly concentrated focus, causing the brain to slow down into a trance-like state.
During Spirit drumming sessions, the focus will be on the experience of listening and feeling the vibrations of the drums. The beat of the drum is used to create states of altered consciousness using a repetitive sound ranging from 180-220 bpm. This state of consciousness is relaxing and meditative.
I will be holding space and drumming for you. If you already have a practice using the sound of the drums you can do that. For others this may be a first experience with something like this. It is not necessary to have any experience at all to join. Some ideas of what you can do while I drum for you:
