Just a few things to pass on for the month of February....
Schedule for the drum circles at Good Harvest Market:
Women's drum circle - Wednesday, February 3rd from 6:00 to 8:00 PM
Open drum circle - Thursday, February 11th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM
Join us for what is always an interesting (and fun) time!! At the February circles, I plan to include a little time for some "toning" for those who are interested (if the group would like to do this). If you don't know what this is, come to the circle and find out!! Good Harvest is located at 1850 Meadow Lane in Pewaukee and the drum circles are held in the Community Room.
Second, I thought I'd pass along some info about a drum circle that will be held on February 13th - below are the details:
DRUM CIRCLE (Drummers wanted!) Medicine Wheel : Earth Astrology
FEBRUARY 13, 3-5 pm Bring drums or share! Bring a dish to pass and beverage to share! Come and meet Featherheart, from Lake Forest, Illinois. She will host an INTENTIONAL drum circle at THE CLEARING, in Milwaukee (9141 West
Lisbon Avenue). She will introduce us to the Medicine Wheel Earth Astrology as taught by Sun Bear. We need drummers of all experience levels for a warm and welcome circle..
** NOTE: PLEASE RSVP: (414)[masked] Susan Palmieri **
Groove has a relationship to the whole area of trance, repetition, meditation, and hypnosis. One view is that, by repeating things beyond a certain point, the listener's mind is forced to jump off to a new place. But rhythm goes very deep at an instinctive level too, and has become increasingly an antidote for me to excess information. Losing myself in playing a hand drum gives me a route to shedding all the clutterings and clammerings of a world over-rich with media, and finding a more wholesome space.
Meet other local hand drummers who are interested in group drum circles and jams, workshops, classes, and trying out some different drums and rhythms. Also meet others who are interested in and/or active in the practice of kirtan.
* At most of the drum events we will have extra drums available for those who don't have a drum yet, but please let us know ahead of time if you'll be needing one. * If your drum needs tuning, or major help, we can steer you in the right direction.
This is a great place to get info on drums, and to find out about other cool drum-related and kirtan happenings around the Milwaukee area (we also post some information about certain events located farther away as well (e.g. Madison and Illinois)).
Please email the organizer (Kristie) if you have questions.
