What we're about

The Sound and Energy Healing Meetup has been set up to provide a place for providers of related healing modalities to promote their meetings and gatherings; as well as providing a place for those individuals wanting to be notified, wanting to learn more and and wanting to participate in such gatherings.

There is a growing recognition of the importance of sound and vibration as the underlying energies in creation and therefore, when brought into balance, underlying our well being. The intention here is that folks participating in this Meetup will grow as a group and, over time, develop a powerful healing synergy for Santa Fe as we get to know and support each other.

Providers of sound and energy healing modalities in the greater Santa Fe area can request to become an Assistant Organizer. Once an Assistant Organizer you will be able to set up and schedule your own Meetups, be able to communicate with the members, and be able to access the many other services available on this site. You and those in your groups will be able to post photos of your work and gatherings, illicit comments and host discussions.

I welcome your ideas & support for the objectives of this site.

Blessings,

Nathaniel

Different Drummers Drum Circle

Unitarian Universalist Church of Santa Fe

Different Drummers Drum Circle is a novice-friendly drum circle which meets once per month in Santa Fe and once per month in Eldorado. It is hosted by Rick Cormier, author of the book, "Freestyle Community Drum Circles."

Our Mission

"Ours is an open, freestyle community drum circle. We are a diverse group of people sharing a common experience. During the process of creating music together, we create community. Our emphasis is on intuitive, improvised, and emotive rhythms rather than rehearsed or traditional ones. We welcome your 'voice' in our group song.

Drumming is fun. Drumming can change your mood and connect you powerfully with others. Drumming can entrance and heal. Drumming can provide a vehicle for expressing joy, frustration, and peace. Drumming can raise energies and provide relaxation. Whether we participate for the spiritual experience, the emotional experience, the musical experience or the social experience, drumming can bring a dozen hearts and souls to a dozen destinations. Yet we journey together...as a community."

Last week, someone asked me why some people claim that drum circles are meditative. Here was my response:

"Group drumming is meditative because, in order to drum from your HEART, you have to turn off your HEAD: the very goal of mindfulness and being in the 'here and now'.

Depression takes place in your head. So does anxiety. So does all of that guilt, self-reproach, and self-criticism many of us experience.

Many people "zone-out" during drum circles. They get lost in the rhythm... same as with chanting, same as in freestyle dancing, same as when meditating... where we learn to ignore our thoughts in favor of being in the moment.

ANY activity that encourages us to take a break from all of that cranial chit-chat is meditative and VERY healthy." ~Rick Cormier
