Medicine Drum Circle (All Ages Welcome)
The drum circle, led by Buckley Griffis, is held on the 3rd Friday night of each month at 7:30 pm. The medicine circle is an ancient healing practice that has been a vital part of communities all over the world. In this circle, we play drums and other percussion instruments with the clear intention of healing ourselves and others. The circle includes three rounds. The first round is a release of those things which no longer serve our higher self. In the second round, we invite new manifestations into our life. Things that we want to create and enjoy. In the final round, we focus the energy of the circle wherever it is needed. To a loved one or a group of people. Maybe to a situation in our lives or a part of the Earth that needs healing. This is a ritual that focuses our energy and attention in a fun and meaningful way. We like people to come at the beginning of the circle and stay until the end so we are all participating in the journey together. No musical experience is needed to enjoy this medicine circle. Drums and small percussion instruments will be provided, however, anyone is welcome to bring their own instruments.
