LFAC ArtSpirit Adventures are packages of "two events and a transformational process" that help participants activate the spiritual power of the visual, literary and performing arts in their lives. Guided by an expert ArtSpirit Facilitator, you'll attend such events as concerts, performances, workshops and individual sessions of great alchemical energy to help you find a revolutionary new connection between art and the flowering of your soul.
In Shamanic Sounds ArtSpirit Adventure: Ancestor Drumming & Ritual we will experience creating music and receiving healing through group drumming with Cathy McManamon and connecting with ancestors and receiving guidance through ritual and shamanic drumming and journeying with Mary Burton. The Drum Circle will invoke the Ancestors by playing rhythms from cultures from around the world.
$95 includes both Events and the Transformational Process. This ArtSpirit Adventure is a package of the following events.
Event 1: Friday, November 18, 8:00-10:00 PM - Open Drum Circle with Cathy McManamon - Come join us for this open drum circle. Drums of any kind, as well as shakers, tambourines, bells, sticks, vocals, body percussion, etc. are very welcome. Some instruments will be available to borrow. Tonight's Drum Circle will invoke the Ancestors by playing rhythms from cultures from around the world.
Event 2: Saturday, December 3, 8:00-10:00 PM - Feasting & Flowers: A Shamanic Ancestor Ritual with Mary Burton - In this ritual, we will honor our ancestors, sending them healing and prayers, so that they may in turn heal and guide us. The term “Ancestors” includes deceased members of our biological family, and other spirit beings with deep connections to our early beginnings in this life. Based in the traditions that many cultures have for honoring the Ancestors, participants are free to call on their own version of Higher Power and spirit guides in communicating with their ancestors, followed by a shamanic journey and journaling.
In between the two Events, participants are invited to do reflective exercises in writing, drawing or meditating to deepen their experience of Shamanic Sounds, which will be given to them by ArtSpirit Facilitator Mary Burton.
