For thousands of years, American Indians and other indigenous peoples have used soft, gentle drumming to center, ground and pray. This form of meditation is used to elicit relaxation and aid in healing. Drumming is a tool which helps us to transcend ordinary consciousness. It is another means of helping us to feel God’s presence in our hearts.
Also known as shamanic drumming, it can be used to elicit the relaxation response. This drum beat has been used for thousands of years and it works by synchronizing the left and right brain hemispheres, slowing the brain wave frequencies down to bring about deep relaxation. Seniors and those with disabilities benefit greatly from drumming meditation, too.
Drum maker and drumming group facilitator, Cathy Flinn, will share her gifts of story-telling via her drumming. Led by Spirit, Cathy, usually, drums for an hour; then, has open time for those who want to share their feelings or experiences with the others in the group. The experiences vary from person to person but they are, often, profound. Hopefully, Cathy will agree to join us on a regular basis.
Depending on the weather, we may hold the circle inside or outside. Chairs and blankets will be provided. No one needs to bring drums as this will allow you to relax and get into the rhythm of the beat without having to concentrate on playing an instrument.
