About The Event
It is common to find a regularly scheduled gathering called a Drumming Circle, comprised of members of the community who come together to practice shamanic ceremonies for the well-being of the circle, their families, and the larger community. It is essential that participants have some journey experience and bring a drum or rattle, the instruments that help create an altered state for journeying into the non-ordinary worlds where healing and wisdom is accessed through connection with spirit.
A typical Drumming Circle might look like this:
To begin there is a ceremony to call in the Four Directions and to smudge or clear each individual from the daily negative/unnecessary energies we all are prey to. That might be followed by introductions and brief sharing around the group including local community announcements. Then there would be drumming, rattling, and dancing, calling in more power and spirit to raise the vibrational level of the Circle. Next might follow a journeying ceremony led by a member of the Circle for all to participate in. Afterwards there might be an individual healing ritual for someone in need with the support of the Circle. There would be a closing ceremony. Often a Drumming Circle can include a pot luck supper or picnic outside.
Of course, every circle determines its format and intention with all members participating equally.
