    Never Enough Drums!

    One of the greatest things my mom told me was that when I was a baby, I loved to beat on pots and pans. Then I got a little bigger and would place them in the floor, in a circle. Sometimes I'd beat them and sometimes I's run around them. Lol. This is but a part of the "memories...

    I Was a Little Wowed

    Pagan/wiccan Drums

    Drums are as old as our species.   Drums were as common to our European ancestors as they were in Africa -- before being outlawed as "too pagan" by the new Christians.  But the drums still live in our bodies and souls, and in the far hidden places remained hidden.   Recently...

    Power Instrument

    The drums are the first instrument connected to humanity. On the most basic level, drums have been used to warn, to protect, to call, and to talk to others. I had the luxury of being a part of a drum circle, once a week for a couple hours or so, for about a month. It truly was...

    I Love The Rainbow

    As far back as I can remember, I started my painting sessions as a young child, with making a rainbow, from making all the colors wet, and ready to go. I have had this deep connection to rainbows for a long time now, rainbow pics, in the sky, and things in rainbow colors, like...

    A Very Cool Place!

    At one of the music festivals that I went to a few years ago some of the organizers built a giant dreamcatcher-like structure out of deadfall trees and rope.  It must have been at least 50 feet or more in diameter and at least 10 to 12 feet high in the center.  Every...

    Being a Drummer

    I play the Bodhran and love to attend drum circles both Druidic and non-Druidic. For the drum is the heartbeat of the Earth and can be directed to healing the Planet and bringing harmony in the universe. Just as a person wiht a weak heart has no energy when we neglect the Earth...

    My Introduction...

    Though I've been a kit drummer since the age of 10, I first became involved with drum circles in the 90's. What fascinated me was that some of the people who participated were having a 'spiritual' experience; some were having a strictly creative musical experience; and some were...

    Naked Drumming

    It was a Wiccan festival.  There was a dome shelter with a firepit and a row of drummers.  Smoke filled the air and drumming filled the soul.  It wasn't a nude event exactly, but being Wiccan, Skyclad was tolerated.  In truth it...

    There Is Something So Powerful About Drumming...

    I love to drum. It is always hit and miss trying to find a drum circle, so I decided one day (four years ago) that I was just going to start a drum circle. I set it up on the internet and posted flyers locally. I made it an open format, without structure, requiring nor...
