    Hello Hobnobbers,
    I will love coming to this event. Have you seen anything about the Global UNIFY event on the same day? I am hosting at the Ananda Healing Center at 6pm. Welcome over for the UNIFY event and then take off afterwards for Drumming up the Sun?

      It sounds like fun those two days are already a marathon for me. Maybe I can add in one more event. I'll see. Why don't you add it to the meetup calendar?

    Chuck (and everyone else) thanks for asking. We are looking for people that have talents and knowledge that they would like to share. Write prose, poetry? Do a reading. Like to dance, sing, act or improv? Give us a performance you get the picture. This event is designed to let people really shine. If you have a workshop to offer, you might want to schedule ahead. Otherwise come to the next meeting or just step up during a lull in the festivities and share away!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
