Dinner and a Drum Circle
Dinner and a Drum Circle Third Sunday of the month through December 2018 Potluck dinner at 6:30 Drumming starts at 7pm Everyone welcome, everything supplied. Even if you might think that you are rhythmically challenged, just join in and you will find rhythms inside of you that you didn’t know you had. By actively participating, you will find that the excitement and rhythms that surround are all you need to fully contribute to the group song. Drums and simple percussion instruments like shakers, bells and woodblocks will also be available. Bring your own instruments too! This is a community drum circle. Most of the time it will be an open drum circle. I do like to bring simple rhythms to try if the group that night is open to it. Some of these rhythms are universal, others are culturally specific. Dinner is in the "parlor" of the big old church building on the corner of 15th ave NE and 43rd in the Udist. Then we will move down the hall to a larger area to circle up and drum. The facilitator of the event is a trained drum circle facilitator through village music (arthur hull). I am also a member of the church we are holding the drum circle in. gratitude practice: At dinner we may go around and share one thing that we have gratitude for that day or week, and/or share something weighing on our hearts. That's it - and you can say "pass". But its in that big old church? Is there going to be religious shenanigans? No! There is no "bait and switch" to try to pull you in the door and save your soul. This event is a zero-proselytizing zone - and this church doesn't do that anyway. All are welcome (gay, straight, trans, religious, non-religious, christian, atheist, wiccan, buddhist, etc ) got it? We just want to hang and play in a drum circle and make some friends. This is a safe space for us to gather to share our spirits through music. FYI - The church that is opening the space to us to use to create this drum circle is also the church that hosts the needle exchange and a young adult shelter in its basement.
