“Drumming as a Human Extension of Energetic and Vibrational Experience”

September 9, 2018

A wonderful experience was had this morning with approximately 15 people in attendance. After an introduction of those who gathered, along with an introduction of each drum and percussive instrument, the group was encouraged to participate with group drumming as a ‘energetic and vibrational experience.’ Lynn was additionally touched by the group’s activity when one of the participants surprised her with a gift from his own possession - a beautiful painted clave set (percussive instrument) from Cuba.

All are welcome to join this informational and experiential drum workshop.  Lynn Turner will provide an introduction to drums, drumming, drum etiquette, and some of the culture of drumming.  After the introduction all will be encouraged to participate in a facilitated rhythm activity then followed by an "open jam" where the group creates its own percussive song.  The session will end with a short meditation lead by a soft percussive heartbeat.

The congregation meets at the Chapel of Our Guardian Angels
