SpiritDrum is a unique gathering that combines life-affirming ritual with meditative drumming, sacred chanting and sound exploration with an overall intention of deepening connection between the Earth-mother and our inner selves. Partly facilitated, partly freeform, SpiritDrum creates an intimate space which allows us to express our spiritual aspirations through the vibrations of our drums and voices. SpiritDrum is unlike a typical drum circle — it is quieter, more contemplative and focused on healing through the medium of sound. For that reason, we ask two things: please leave large drums at home, and please arrive before the scheduled starting time so we don’t have the disruption of people dropping in once the evening’s energy has begun to flow. Some extra drums will be provided for sharing, but you are encouraged to bring smaller drums such as frame drums, doumbeks, bongos and other instruments like rattles, singing bowls, chimes, didgeridoos and flutes. No prior experience is necessary.
