Drumming for Harmony - Bellingen
Time & Location
About the Event
Come and Discover the power of the Drum and Song.
The Drum beat is the first Sound of Creation.
For 9 months we hear our mothers heart beat, constantly holding us, calling us in. It pumps the force of life through us and we become one with it. Once we are born, we sing out to the world, letting it know that we have arrived. Through the resonance of the drum and our voice, we discover the balance and harmony within life.
This is the power of the Drum and the Voice.
The Medicine wheel or Sacred wheel, is a map of understanding. Found in some shape or form in almost every culture around the world, it gives us a way to understand ourselves, nature and all of life. It has many layers and shows the connection and balance between many things.
We will be exploring our 4 bodies and the archetypes associated with them.
Our 4 bodies: Spiritual, Emotional, Physical and Mental.
The 4 associated Archetypes: Warrior, Healer, Teacher and Visionary.
We will explore how to balance these bodies and the different types of songs associated with them.
We will gather at the Main Pavilion at Bellingen Show Grounds form 5pm - 7pm on the following Dates:
Please note that this is an introductory course to a body of work that goes much deeper and that is many layered.
This course will give you a good overview and understanding of the work and is mainly focused on getting to know your drum and how to work with it in the different ways mentioned above. For those of you who are beginners, this is a perfect course for you. For those of you that are more experienced, this will deepen you understanding and practice. If you have any questions, please send me an email or give me a call and I will be happy to discuss further.
If you have a drum please bring it with you, a medicine drum is ideal, but any drum is great. We will also be working with some other purcussion, so if you have a rattle etc, please bring it along.
If you would like to craft your own drum, there is a workshop being held on the 23rd and 24th January.
you can also purchase a drum directly from me, or I can customize a drum for you.
Otherwise I have a few extra drums available for the workshop. Please let me know if you need one when registering.
Looking forward to drumming and singing with you
