The drum circles are held four times a year on the solstices and equinoxes. The focus of the circles is on healing for individuals, the community, and the earth. This is the longest running drum circle in the San Francisco Bay Area, having started in 1998.
The format for the circle includes calling power, drum circle meditation (or journey), healing circle and closing circle. Please note that this is not a jam or free form drumming (except for the calling of power). Follow an ancient practice of altering consciousness using a repetitive beat. There are no counter beats, harmonies, or melodies.
You do not have to be experienced in drumming or shamanism to attend. If you have a shamanic journey practice, you will be able to journey during the drumming circle, though experience with the shamanic journey is not required.
If you have a drum or rattle, please bring it. Some drums and rattles will be available to borrow.
Free, but registration is required.
