First Sunday of the month apart from April as it is Easter Sunday:
Feb 4th, March 4th, April 3rd, May 6th and June 3rd
Finally! Four years on, I finally, at last, started up a monthly drumming circle in May 2017. Happy dance :-) ♥ Many of you had been asking me to start one for the previous 4 years and so I am very excited to have now done so.
It is held in Bridstow Village Hall, just outside Ross off the Wilton roundabout on the Hereford road, so it is lovely and accessible for everyone. There is parking at the hall but please car share wherever possible.
I have been holding the Circles on or as near to the full moons as possible. A great way to release what we do not wish to take in to the new month and to raise our energy and vibration. Drumming has proven health benefits as many of you know. It can improve your mental health, your well being, reduce stress levels and so on. It is also a powerful way to ground ourselves and with the current energetic climate that is important more than ever. No experience is necessary, almost anyone* can have a go, we all find our own rhythm, the drum is like the heart beat, connect to your heart beat and you find a rhythm :-)
So. There is a short drum or flute meditation at some point during the evenings as these circles are about sacred ceremony as well as fun. There are also quiet spaces where we can absorb the energies created and be still, thereby integrating everything. I would like us to set intentions at each meeting and we also drum to send out healing as well. There is singing or chanting which is not obligatory but voice work is incredibly powerful, so I encourage this :-) No fear! I said encourage not expect or enforce lol :-) ♥ but we mostly drum freestyle, and most of us know how that goes so come prepared for high energy too. I want it to be open to anybody that wants to come and contribute and let's have fun.
You need to bring a mat, maybe a cushion and a warm blanket to wrap yourselves in for the meditation. As a drum maker, I will have a couple of spare drums with me, but please do let me know beforehand if you do not have a drum but would like to come along and join in. Please do come along. If you have a drum then please bring it... hand drums, bodruns, djembes etc, cardboard boxes and wooden spoons.... :-) If you have any percussion instruments like rattles, bells, rain sticks etc, bring them too. Let's make some beautiful sounds and noise ♥
There is an exchange of £10, concessions £8, (please speak to me if you really want to come but can only make a donation, I would not want anyone loosing out) to cover the hire of the hall and costs
I really look forward to greeting you. please mark yourself as coming if you are coming :-) Thank you ♥ In gratitude.
