About the Event

Humans have been gathering in circle, drumming and singing since the very beginning; it's in our blood, it's in our bones, it's our human nature. We each have a drum in our chest, our heartbeat. When we were in the womb we were held by our Mother's heartbeat, and the sound of the drum connects us to the heart of our Great Mother Earth.

When we drum together, we unite our hearts. When we sing together, our souls dance with one another. I hold this playful space to share the songs I've come to learn and love dearly over the years. I carry many songs from different traditions around the world; Yawanawa, Zimbabwe, Lakota, Sanskrit, Quechua, Mauri, Aztec… songs that offer prayers of blessings and gratitude to Mother Earth, invoke our Cosmic Essence, and sing to honor our siblings the plants and animals. Paradoxically enough this evening is less about being good at singing, but more so about feeling, and liberating our expression, connecting to our hearts and one another. The result is an immense felt sense of belonging, feeling grounded and nourished. So let us come together, unite our voices, and have fun! LOCATION: >> Here's the google maps PIN

This is just North of the Locarno Beach parking lot. The nearest intersection is Tolmie and NW Marine Drive. There is a section of the beach that has a little meadow/tree section. We will be nestled in there. If you have trouble finding the location, shoot me a text: 788 580 8148 ** If it rains, I will email you on the day with my home address which is just a few blocks away. ARRIVAL: 6:45-7pm - Arrival, get set up. mingle. 7pm - we sing till the sun comes down! Note: this is not a djembe drum circle, but a medicine/hoop/frame drum circle. That being said, all types of drums are welcome! I have extra hoop drums and rattles so everyone gets a chance to play the drum. If you have your own drum, please bring it with you!
