Drumming has been a part of the community experience throughout history. People have rediscovered the power of joining with others in a shared music making experience. Music increases the immune response, expresses emotion, stimulates the brain, and nurtures the spirit. This wellness activity will be led by a music therapist and does not require musical training. Space is limited.
A gathering for stillness, reflection, and connection in rhythm with natures moon cycles.
Sacred time and space to deepen into stillness with supported meditation practice,
allow contemplation with the power of putting words to paper,
and be a witness to yourself and others while setting intentions/releasing
in a ceremonious way with each new and full moon.
Come as you are, dress comfortably, bring a journal (optional), and please plan your arrival early (doors lock and doorbell disconnects at start). No drop ins due to space limitations but feel free to contact Christina the same day for spaces.
This is a space for feminine identified or any gender connecting with sacred feminine energy; although it is not restricted to women-only, it is a sacred feminine space. Open and affirming to all belief systems.
What to expect in this practice: forming the circle with a check in, an introduction of meanings/associations of the current moon phase and season, a guided meditation (based in mindfulness, yoga nidra, or visualization), a moment for personal reflection and writing, then we witness each other sharing (optional) our intentions (and burning our writings in our center caldron), a small ending meditation/connection, and check out to release the circle. Here is more about the moon circle: http://beverlytherapists.com/moon-circle/
