AIKYA is a Sanskrit word meaning "oneness with all that is."
Oneness within, oneness without.
Harmony within, harmony without.
Become ONE with the RHYTHM 'n BEAT of the DRUM!
Find your pulse and align yourself with the Universal Beat
Just open your Heart and move your feet
Give up your worries and surrender to the drum
Let your hair down and have some Fun
Sway to the rhythms of that old Earth vibration
And come together as ONE through Heartbeat Drum Nation.
If you reading this, you are already a drummer.
That's because you have a beating heart inside you. If you can talk, you can drum. If you can walk, you can dance. You need be neither a drummer nor a dancer to come. You can just come and watch. Some drums will be provided but please bring your own. Feel free to bring other instruments as well.
Drumming is FUN, but it is also healing MEDICINE.
A drum jam spells P-A-R-T-Y, but it is also a SHAMANIC ritual. Our drum/dance circle is a truly sacred space. It is a transformational gathering. So please come with reverence for yourself and for all others at the circle. That said, loosen up... then LET GO!
Join us in dance, meditation, and rhythmic FUN!
Bring your unique spirit and vibes. YOU are what makes this drum/dance circle come alive.
Welcome Portland Hand Drummers, Singers and Dancers!
