February Event: Brigid Drum Circle and Ceremony of Empowerment
As we move to the midpoint between the winter solstice and spring equinox, this evening combines the wild fun of a drum circle followed by a lovely ceremony of calling power into you as the very early hints of spring awaken in the land (outer and inner!). You can arrive with a prayer on your lips: "Bring the new life, healthy, vibrant, beautiful."
The evening is split into two halves. The first is a drum circle, full of the rhythmic rapture of percussive play. After a short break, Jaime and several of his advanced students will conduct a beautiful ceremony of filling each person with the "emerging fire." This is drawn from the Celtic tradition of working with the figure of Brigid, known as the goddess of healing and inspiration, and as the bringer of spring and the new shape of life.
It's good to be together, to have fun, to wahoo with each other, to make prayers for life.
There's a suggested donation of $20, but don't let money be your obstacle - come, wahoo and pay what you want.
You can just show up, but it helps greatly if you reserve your spot by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org. (I sometimes send an email with instructions, ideas or inspirations a couple days in advance.)
