Magic happens when women drum together. It is ancestral, it is known within our bones. It brings us together and allows us to drop into the collective consciousness and to be our authentic selves. We make ripples in the universe as we come together for the collective good.
This time we drum together we will be adding to the wonderful rising of Earth Healing. We will tap into the collective consciousness, drumming to raise the vibration, to bring healing to the world and our beautiful planet. You will also receive drum healing.
Time: 7:20pm -9pm (doors locked at 7:30pm)

Looking forward to sharing the magic of the drum with you sisters.
I’ve known that there is power in sound all of my life.
As a child I tried out (unsuccessfully!) for the school choir and played recorder and trumpet for a while. At home, I enjoyed tinkling on my keyboard. I liked making up sounds and melodies and performed in assemblies, school plays and orchestras.
In my teens I lost this joy, succumbing to the pressure of perfection and of fitting in with the crowd. I dropped the instruments but I did begin to discover my musical taste…an eclectic mix of rock, pop and metal, world music and alternative beats.
In my twenties, as a primary school teacher, I joined the kids guitar club in the school that I worked in. I once again opened to the sheer joy of making music! I spent time following pre-made patterns or by strumming away on my own and making up songs for the children. I think this is where I gained my real confidence in letting go and going with the flow!
I later joined a community choir and a steel pan band – which I loved! The sense of community in the steel pan team was amazing! We all worked together to bring about such delicious sounds and joy to all we performed for! It was just beautiful.
And, as all of this was unfolding, in 2012 I truly awakened to the healing essence of drums when I learned the Reiki Drum Technique.
I loved healing with the drum so much that it began to call to me throughout the day. I drummed alone and then with friends, sometimes I drummed with strangers around fires and in ceremonies and it awakened an ancient feeling in me. A kind of ‘I’ve always known how to do this’ awakening!…
And now…I hear the same from those who join me in drumming!
