For many of us who walk planet earth today, we have become disconnected to mother earth, the cycles of the seasons and the rhythm of our natural world.
As many of us awaken to a desire, coming from deep within, to live a more harmonious life, we seek rituals, ceremonies and circles that create the space for us to connect. The drum ceremonies provide us with an opportunity to experience sacred space. Peace Walkers hold the intention to create an environment that is safe, sacred and open to the community, and provide an experience that inspires, educates and empowers the individual to elevate their human condition to access tools to be a contributing member to this planet, while fulfilling their commitment to be of service.
There is something powerful when we come together to support each other on our journey, celebrating the hopes and dreams, mourning loss and suffering. We can experience healing, nurturing, compassion and understanding.
Shared Sacred Space intensifies the power of our intentions and creates an energetic web of support and magnifies the power of your intentions. An energetic web is created and ripples beyond the immediate circle into the greater world.
Peace Walkers create opportunities for people from all walks of life to connect to the energy of the Great Mystery and experience the power of the drum as we build community. Peace Walkers create space to make drumming, and self-directed and self-empowered healing accessible to others.
Peace Walkers medicine wheel drum circle ceremony recognizes the four directions—east, south, west, north—as spiritual Powers that hold insight for balance and healing. The ceremony generally has four rounds, with drumming by all participants with guidance from the mother drum and the leader allowing the energy of each direction in each round to come into the circle to facilitate prayers and healing. It has been described as a purification ceremony under the seven star sisters.”
Peace Walkers New Moon Drum Circle
Peace Walkers New Moon Drum Circle is open to all who seek their spiritual paths. We gather on the new moon of every month for a community drum. The Circle is a sacred place where one learns to find within themselves who they are and clarify their sacred purpose, their path.
The New Moon is a time of rejuvenation, a time to release challenges from the past, be conscious of your present journey, and remain focused with clear intention for the red path we choose to travel. New Moon ceremony is about birth, rebirth, the building of a solid foundation.
A New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle, a fresh start in its cycle of waxing and waning. During this time, Moon is empty and receptive and full of potential. This is an optimum time to plant seeds of intentions for what you wish to manifest in your life.
Peace Walkers Full Moon Drum Circle
The Full Moon ceremony symbolizes the end of a chapter, shining the light on the things we no longer need to hold on to and illuminating the emergence of our essential being, calling, passions.
Drum circles can create a community spirit and a sense of belonging within a group of folks. Everyone participating becomes an important part of the dynamic and adds their way, enhancing the overall rhythms and sound of the songs. In this collective rhythm, each member becomes connected until essentially there is the sense that all are one. The experience illustrates that the whole is greater than separate parts, or, in this case, all the individual drummers and, as a result, each drummer can experience the joy of working together with others to create a powerful and entrancing sound experience that fills the space and the soul.
But what does this work with rhythm have to do with our world today? Learning in rhythm is a good training for life, complete with its unpredictability and chaos. The rhythm in the sacred circle reflects our life. We encounter the same difficulties: trying too hard, needing to be perfect, fear of making mistakes. As we find our own way in circle we can relax some of these habits of mind and open to our joy that comes from deep within. It is a process, a journey, an exploration.
Drumming connects us to the rhythms of earth and grounds our intentions.
The drum circle is a sacred ceremony of honoring all relatives ~ honoring the wisdom of the four directions and the nature of the four elements, the four seasons.
*Peace Walkers gatherings are free of alcohol and all other mind-altering substances.- “an elder once explained to me that when we drink and drug, we drive our spirits away - that’s why some people look lost, angry and afraid - their spirit has left. People often talk about “getting high from experiencing the power of the circle and the songs of the drum - it’s real ~ and not artificially created,” ~ annie loyd, founder | the FUSION foundation
