Rhythm=Trance. Trance=Shifting One's Spirit.

"I can feel the pulse of community when we rhythm together. This will heal us and our world. Thank you for our blessings." This quote is from a participant in a previous ISA rhythm circle.

This circle is open to those who want an opportunity to create trance inducing rhythm with like-minded people. Creating, and listening to, rhythm helps the process of shapeshifting our thoughts, our emotions, and our bodies.  Join us for this rhythmic exploration. 

There are many logical benefits to creating rhythm, especially in a group. 
1) The consistent beat induces the Alpha/Theta state quickly, which activates our state of mind when we are dreaming. 
2) Feeling the rhythm relaxes and energizes the energy systems, creating space for health.
3) The more comfortable we become while keeping the beat, then the easier it is to shapeshift, and experience the joyful benefits of feeling rhythm move through your body.
But mainly, it feels good. It clears the head. It centers the heart. Ahhh.

After opening our circle, we will call upon the Elements (Air, Fire, Water and Earth) with our drumbeats and rhythm.  Each Element has a feeling, an energy, that we will "play" and ask for for each element to share it's beneficial energy with us. If you are new to a rhythm circle, you will receive some tips. The best way to improve your style and consistency (and thereby TRANCE!) is to practice.  Here is a peaceful place to practice.  

If you have a drum and/or rattle, bring them. Some people prefer the drum, some prefer the rattle. It's all good.  If you do not have a drum/rattle, you can borrow one of ours.  The focus of this circle is to learn to listen to your inner rhythm and then listen to the others around you to create a power-filled rhythm of beats.  When we can learn to drum a unified beat, worlds can open up. :)  THIS CIRCLE IS OPEN TO PEOPLE WITH ALL LEVELS OF "RHYTHMIC" EXPERIENCE. Come have fun with us!

This circle is offered by Spirit Guided Donation. Ask within to know what to offer. These circles are supported by your donations. Thank you.

Your guide is Quynn Elizabeth, founder of the Institute for the Shamanic Arts and one who loves the shifting power of rhythm. :)

    I didn't feel up to it but I went and had a wonderful experience with great people. I came away super relaxed and refreshed which was a huge shift from where I started. The 7:00 pm start time also made it much easier for me to to attend.

    I really would like to attend, but am currently unemployed and have nothing to spare *$8.00* in bank... How much is the required "donation"? That is why I signed up, but have never been able to join you. Maybe I should just un-join... let me know.

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.
