Under Construction

 "In many Shamanic Societies, if someone came to a medicine man complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they are asked one of four questions:  When did you stop singing? When did you stop dancing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?
~ Gabrielle Roth

Primal Reach Drumming

The act of “playing” music is a beautiful way to bring people together from our primal self.  Our primal Self is the place beneath the skin.

African drumming has been in my life since birth. I have used the drum for my own healing and for others for over 20 years. It has taken me through life in such a profound way.

When drumming, both sides of the brain are activated. This activation triggers a release of endorphins that can relieve both physical and emotional pain.  Drumming also offers a sense of community and fosters cooperation as each player adds his or her part to the rhythm.  There is so much science today that backs this information. It’s really powerful stuff!

Drumming can be so many things. It is a whole lot of fun, it is meditative especially for those who have trouble being still.  And we know that in a meditative state we draw closer to Spirit.
