By "Sacred" drum circle, we mean that this event is focused on a floor altar and uses frame drums for healing and supportive purposes. Please do not attend with the intention of cowboying or coming simply to make a lot of noise. There is nothing wrong with this, but that is simply not the sort of drum circle this event is.
Our circle has evolved from it's beginnings a few years ago. Nowadays we open the space by drumming to the realms (above, below, middle), welcoming in the energetic beings we have relationships with in each of those places, then serve the current needs of the community, and finally thank and release those energies welcomed in during the beginning.
How do we serve the needs of the community? That's decided by the group that night! Some days we do meditative work with the drums, other times we do healing circles for the people there where we use healing with frame drum principals, other times we drum out any emotions congesting the free beating of our hearts, recognizing the heartbeat itself is a prayer. It's a varied experience no one is expected to take part in but all are invited to.
We ask for $10 a person to cover the expense of the space, the oil you're welcomed with at the blessing in the beginning, and care and maintenance of the drums. If you choose to donate more, that goes to new drums when needed and/or the facilitator's expenses.
Hope to see you there!
