Flying fingers: Cymbal techniques
Ride the Wave of Rhythmic Healing
The body is a collection of Rhythms…. the heart beat, blood flow, respiration, digestion. When the natural rhythms of the body are disrupted, the body manifests dis-ease. In some cultures, it is believed that drumming can bring the body back into it’s natural rhythm, and in doing so, back to health.
Drumming is also used as a tool to induce trance. Trance is the person’s natural ability to learn & transform, creating more successful behaviors that allow us to create the life we wish to manifest for ourselves.
During this workshop we will learn to access the Inner Thunder Being & activate Lightning Hands.
Come join us as we drum, dance, trance and transform into the magnificent light beings we truly are at our core, returning to Olludumare, the Source of Love & Mercy.
Make your own colorful dance veils, sarongs, scarves, altar cloths, wrappers for magical paraphernalia, and sacred garb by doing salt effect silk dying.
