Bring your own drum if you have one (an upright drum – djembe, ashiko, or tubano work best for this class.) Let us know if you need to borrow one.

Sacred Rhythms Drum Circle
Tuesday July 9th, 23rd 6:30-8 PM
Rhythm and sound have been used in sacred circles since the beginning of human culture. In this drum circle, we’ll explore the power of rhythm to affect consciousness and create synergy. We’ll begin with a guided meditation to center and ground, then move through various inspiring, uplifting, ecstatic, and joyful rhythms together. You’re welcome to participate as a drummer or just listen. Dancing and spinning encouraged! Bring your favorite drum or percussion instrument – we’ll also have some extras on hand.
Sacred Rhythms Drum Circle
Brent BlackLion Nelson and Nikki Starcat Shields have been playing hand drums together for over a decade, and they’ve appeared as Feline Drummers at various community events, workshops, art fairs, spa yoga sessions, and celebrations. As musicians and performers for 8 years with the vaudeville troupe The Dark Follies, they’ve added various Middle-eastern, African, and eastern European rhythms, styles, and instruments to the mix. Starcat and BlackLion love to take part in drum circles, fireside gatherings, and jams these days. Come join the party!

Happy Litha/Midsummer Solstice everyone!
Attend Diana’s Intuitive Development class on June 22nd and enjoy our Solstice Celebration that evening for $28. Regular admission is $35.
Mother Earth is lush with seed and bountiful. Father Sun is at his peak. We honor the sacred union of God and Goddess. The Summer Solstice is a jubilant celebration of Light and the Miracle of Life. At Litha, the veil between the worlds is thin. We are closer to Spirit. It is an excellent time to commune with Heaven and call upon the sacred power of the Sun (our Source) so that we may rekindle our Joy and step into our Brilliance.
This evening, we will celebrate our Good and reaffirm our Light. Diana will deliver a channeled message from Mother Earth & Father Sky to help us navigate the coming season. Spirit has also guided Diana to lead us in a heart healing meditation to rekindle our inner flame. Our time together would not be complete without our gathering together in ceremony to honor our path and set new intentions. Join us and make merry! No celebration would be complete without good company, good cheer, refreshment, and a bit of chocolate! We look forward to an inspired evening of love, joy, and renewal by the light of the Midsummer Solstice! Please register early to ensure a seat. $35
