Drumming for Women: Remembering a Sacred Legacy
Saturday May 25, 2:00-4:00pm
ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
This workshop is not just about learning how to play the frame drum. It is about experientially exploring a distinctly feminine approach to spirituality — one that remembers and celebrates the importance of a feminine divine principle in our lives — and one that embraces the whole body as a means through which to access and claim that divinity for ourselves.
This workshop is about discovering the history of a time and place where women were regarded as priestesses and as keepers of sacred sound. It is about taking our place within that history, and empowering ourselves to know deeply that our sound, our voice, and our fully embodied spirit not only deserves to be seen and heard, but must be — for our selves, our families, our communities, and our planet.
As we hold these sacred tools in our hands, we will allow the deep and primal knowledge of how to use them rise to the surface of our being. And by “keeping together in time” with our sisters, we will feel and know our unity in the “rhythmic web” of life.*

I have seven drums available for use on a first come, first serve basis. If you would like to reserve one, please let me know as soon as possible. If you are bringing your own drum, please make sure that the drumhead is greater than the depth of its frame. You should be able to hold it’s frame in your hands, with your fingers free to play its head. If you have any questions about whether your drum will work, please send me a message. No prior drumming experience necessary.
