Shamanic Trance Drumming Session
March 21 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
As part of our Harmony Day activities, we’ve invited PhD researcher John Lee to come and share something rare and exciting with you all: a moonlit Native American shamanic trance drumming session.
The Shamanic Tradition is a tradition based around care of the Earth and valuing the different seasons, and is a world-wide practice of the ancient pre-Roman inhabitants of the British Isles, of Asia, of pre-European South America and of the Native Americans. Some Indigenous Australian elders are also practitioners.
In this event, the beat of the Native American shaman drum is used to initiate a trance state and to facilitate spirit travel to other dimensions, to the past or the future, or to the lower world to meet one’s power animals.
Anyone who is familiar with praying in the Christian or Muslim manner will feel comfortable, as will those who practice meditation in the New Age sense.
As the effect of this practice is heightened by the presence of the full moon, this session will be held on the lawn just outside the Clubhouse. If the weather is poor, however, it will be held inside the Clubhouse, and should still be a fantastic experience.
