“Drumming For Your Life-Shamanic and Buddhist Drumming and Meditation.” - With Rabbi Richard Chimon Simon, OGL and Karin Hirsch
Saturday July 21st 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Indigenous cultures have been practicing community percussion for thousands of years. Now people all over the world are taking up drumming in astounding numbers. At a grass roots level, small community drum circles are springing up. While some drum circles are content to jam and make a lot of rhythmic noise, others prefer to explore shamanic drumming.
Shamanic drumming is a time-honored method of healing and helping others. Shamanic drum circles provide the opportunity for people of like mind to unite for the attainment of a shared objective. There is power in drumming alone, but that power recombines and multiplies on many simultaneous levels in a group of drummers. The drums draw individual energies together, unifying them into a consolidated force.
Rabbi Richard Chimon Simon, OGL is a Monk of Pine Wind with an extensive background in ritual and contemplative drumming. He led Temple Har Zion in Mt. Holly NJ for over 30 years, where he often used drumming as part of the worship there. Chimon also taught for the Holy Drummers Institute and is an experienced Kirtan drummer.
