Drumming As Spiritual Practice
Connect with a primal and essential aspect of your spirituality through drumming! Rhythm is intrinsic to the world in which we live. Join us for an exploration of drumming as a spiritual practice. No drumming experience necessary. We will have some drums on hand to use during the gathering, so no drum is necessary either. Your interest in drumming and a desire to nurture your spirit are all that are required!
Are you grappling with how to integrate your spirituality into your daily life? You are not alone! Do you find yourself wrestling with spiritual issues such as violence, poverty, injustice, greed, social responsibility, suffering and fear? Wish you had someone to discuss these and other important topics with? You are not alone!
This group meets to discuss topics (chosen by the group) that relate to our spirituality and spiritual practice. We read articles, watch video clips and reflect on current events as a spring board for our conversations. A link to the discussion resources (videos, articles, etc) will be posted a week prior to the gathering. Each gathering will conclude with an invitation to a spiritual practice exercise to try during your daily life.
We are an eclectic group of people who gather to share ideas, teach a new skill, and support each other in using our creativity to support efforts of peace in our community. (we create items to donate or share with local nonprofits to use or sell to support their mission)
This group began meeting 6 years ago! The members decided to broaden the scope of the group to include artists and crafters of all mediums and launch a new group called Create For Peace. See above for info about this newly imagined group.
*This group is on hiatus while we wait to find new volunteer leadership*
This is a group for people who are trying to cope with the fallout of the current recession. Whether you have lost your job or are otherwise struggling economically, it can be difficult to stay hopeful and motivated. Yet hope and motivation are the very things needed to land a new job, or positively change your situation.
This group provides support, information, and accountability for those who need a little help getting motivated in their job search. Group meetings will offer support such as free resume advice from an HR professional, positive approaches to common interview challenges, and networking opportunities.
Hectic schedule? Pulled in a thousand directions? Spend time with us for a few moments of quiet time. The sound of your heart beat and the rustling of the leaves are the loudest noises you may hear as we gather for some time to reflect, listen and quiet our spirits. We will explore a different form of reflection each time we meet. All you need to do is come with an open mind and spirit. Look for an announcement for this group to begin meeting in March 2015.
Some of the forms of reflection we will explore:
Walking Reflection Clay
Focused Breathing Mantra
