Sacred Drumming is dedicated to helping create cross-cultural connection and inclusion among diverse peoples.
Music and frame drumming, in particular, are Universal languages and a worldwide global phenomenon that bring people together from all demographics of life to be in circle and collective rhythm.
We stand with our black community members, the indigenous, oppressed, and minority people in the U.S. and the world over who are suffering and demanding change.

As you will see if you join us the images and my
From this earthen spot on the island of Crete to the cyber webs of modern technology the sacred drum is a simple yet powerful instrument that can remind us of our individual and global connection to universal rhythms.
This was a completely improvisational Sacred Drumming composition that came to me while on the island of Crete last summer, where I was continuing my research of the sacred drummers, oracles, muses, and bee priestesses of the ancient/modern world.

We are individually and collectively crafting the mythos.
There's a fresh mythos now germinating from ancient seeds buried and perpetually tended to from long, long ago...
It's a mythos of a culture that aspires to remember ancient and indigenous wisdom and reminds us to tend to and share the collective commons with deep reverence.
"Mythos: a pattern of beliefs often expressing the characteristic or prevalent attitudes symbolically in a group or culture." As you look around the world through the lens of media, your tv, the internet matrix, what do you see? Do the collective patterns of symbols, stories and attitudes inspire your soul?
Sometimes yes? Sometimes no? We are individually and collectively crafting the mythos. For 2,000 + years up to the present day, the dominant voice has been that of the pa
