HOLISTIC RHYTHMs WORKSHOP
COTTONWOOD OLD TOWN PLAZA
(corner of Main and 4th St.)
Saturday, Sept 29th 1pm-3pm (Rm F6)

In this workshop connect with everyone at heart through fun, cooperative drumming with Frame Drums. Holistic Rhythms are rhythms which are natural to our bodies. They are primarily expressed and manifested through walking. Through these core rhythms, the two hemispheres of one’s brain are engaged in a balanced, holistic way.

IN THIS DRUMMING WORKSHOP:

* Have fun freely expressing yourself in a safe, supportive environment. No one is a Rhythm klutz!

* Learn two, simple, aboriginal (non-western) drum patterns which will be the foundation for our energetics of drumming & communicating.

* Discover how these core patterns can be powerfully applied to experiences of mindful breathing/mindful walking and other creative movement.

The over-arching purpose of this workshop is to provide practical tools for generating a strong foundation of peacefulness within while building greater resiliency. With deeper peacefulness and greater resiliency we can most effectively meet and succeed — in the face of the challenges of life.

From a renewed, energized place of peace and strength, one can choose naturally to launch out — to love, to serve. Our bodies are our drum! Our movements — our power, creativity and freedom expressed.

The world needs us all now–to step up and in our own unique ways participate in its positive, life-enhancing evolution.

$15 cash at the door. RSVP inquiries and registration at: https://lansingday.net/contact-2/ or call Lansing at 607-279-6314
Class: Up to 12 persons

DRUM FOR WATER
COTTONWOOD OLD TOWN PLAZA
(corner of Main and 4th St.)
Saturday, July 28th 12:30-2 (Rm F6)

Heart Song Drumming is hosting a WATER focused Group Empowerment Drumming Event for ALL ages: DRUM FOR WATER. Together, through improvisational, rhythmical expression we will send our Love and Appreciation to WATER, to the life force of water in our own bodies, and to water all around the Earth. We will create as we go, with drumming statements and vocals.

Water from the Verde River and from the three ponds at Dead Horse State park will be central to our circle. In this event it will continue with the format which evolved spontaneously at the Drum For Water event in Sedona in April.
The circle will be primarily a circle of women, with men in a supportive role.

Attendees are invited to bring water from home or from any source. At the conclusion of the event, we’ll return the “blessed waters” to their respective homes, as positive seeds to grow.

Water everywhere so needs us humans to step up, stand up at this time. To be stewards with conviction. We can help by singing out with our rhythmical spirits, joining together powerfully.

Frame drums and some djembes will be available to share. Bring you own, if you wish.

Love donations appreciated.
