What we're about

This meetup group is devoted to offering a number of different opportunities to be in mindful community with others and connect more deeply with the Great Spirit uniting us all.

Among the many mediums explored in DDC gatherings are the principle one's of drumming, dancing, and seated meditation. Each gathering is unique and could have just one of these elements, or perhaps all of them and more. Ultimately each gathering is an opportunity for the continued exploration, participation, and appreciation of the interplay of rhythm, flow, and stillness. It could be the rhythm and flow of our feet, our voices, and our hands, or it could simply be the rhythm and flow of our breath, arising and settling in the stillness of our Being. This stillness of Being could also be called a 'deep listening' or Presence in which there is no extra sense of there being an individual listener or 'doer'. All is ultimately recognized as the rhythm and flow of wholeness, all connected in the Heart. The forms are allowed to come and go and do their dance... all a natural expression and play of the Infinite Being and Awareness that Is.

Drumming Uma

Online event

DRUMMING UMA Learn the beautiful rhythmic cycles originally written by Layne Redmond! She presented this to our Group at the end of a 6 month training with her at Mount Madonna, and as was her nature, she said: Please do share. Although that was near 20 years ago, Uma is still my favorite song to play, both for meditative moments and to strengthen my skills Frame Drum Class every Tuesday at 6:30 Jan. 19th- March 9th $15 per class/120/ Register by Jan. 19th and get $25 off = $95 for all 8, 90 minute classes, plus notation. Video and audio recordings will be made available at the end of the classes. Requirements: Frame Drum of your choice, basic knowledge of the different strokes I have rewritten the notation to conform to Glen Velez notation, and I have made small changes to the rhythms for ease of playing. I love this set of 8 rhythms that you play one after another creating dynamic energy. Uma is the Mother goddess in Hinduism,and has many attributes and aspects.Each of her aspects is expressed with a different name, giving her over 10000 names in regional Hindu stories of India. Along with Parvati, Lakshmi and Saraswati, she forms the trinity of Hindu goddesses (Tridevi). In Sanskrit the word umā can further mean "tranquility".
