THE DRUMMING CIRCLE: A GLORIOUS EXPRESSION OF SPIRIT
The beating of the Native American drum (chachanga) symbolizes the heart beat of the earth. Hoops are made of wood and our drum skins are of deer, kangaroo, goat, horse, or cow. Native American drumming can also include songs which are hundreds of years old and reflect the seasons, our responsibilities and our respect for nature and ancestral lore.
The drumming circle offers equality because there is no head or tail. It includes people of all ages. The main objective is to share rhythm and get in tune with each other and the land we gather upon. The drum is a sacred tool connecting heaven and earth, and for maintaining the rhythm of the world order. When we drum and sing together under the sky, we can lift one another’s spirits. Our unified vibrations can have a positive impact on the energy all around the circle, above and below the circle, and within us. No previous experience is necessary.
Drumming Circle will be facilitated by Aaron O’Neil.
What to bring: A hand drum/beater, your flute or any other suitable musical instrument, water to drink, an open heart!
This is a Monthly Fundraising Event for Kupidabin Wilderness Charitable Trust (KWCT) and will be held in the Cultural Centre if the weather is unfavourable.
