Beginning the New Year in Rhythm, Ma Mantra & Intentioning

Beginner friendly

We begin the new year in rhythmic communion
with frame drumming and chant.
We will fuel our intentions with extended drumming
of rhythm patterns followed by a resting pause of silence
and nourish in the reverberation of a timeless space.

"One of the most powerful aspects of drumming and the reason people have done it since the beginning of being human is that it changers people's consciousness.Through rhythmic repetition of ritual sounds, the body, the brain and the nervous system are energized and transformedWhen a group of people play a rhythm for an extended period of time, their brain waves become entrained to the rhythm and they have a hared brain wave state.The longer the drumming goes on, the more powerful the entrainment becomes. It's really the oldest holy communion."
Layne Remond
