The Rhythm is Gonna Get You!

We just got back from the Community Drumming Circle led by Cathy Chicoine at the Oshun Centre in Saskatoon. This is a beautiful location for the circle to be held. The hexagon shaped environment with a vaulted ceiling is ideal for acoustics and energy flow. We had an excellent time.

I always find it amazing how the rhythm in a circle is so organic. The sound itself is very healing but the tempo will change and the subrhythms will flow in and out like ocean waves. It is quite beautiful.

I am looking forward to the next drumming cirlce that I will be leading as well. This will be on Tuesday the7th at the Aquamarine Healing Centre. This is going to be a Waxing Moon ceremony, with a Waning Moon ceremony to follow on the 14th.

I find the moons this month to be particularly powerful. The last 2 weeks have also had the "Disturbance in the Force" feel to them. Interesting and powerful shifts energetically, coupled with Mercury in retrograde, has made for a roller coaster ride for many. The good news is that we are now on the other side of it all.

May the Force be with you!

Blessed Be

I've certainly felt like I've been on a roller coaster lately - work and home lives in flux, the feeling that I've been walking on uneven ground heaved up by the powerful changes going on in the Earth and the Universe at large.
Last night, there were very faint streaks of white light in the sky that I could see only when I focussed my eyes to one side of them. I thought I was seeing a meteor shower, but after reading your blog this morning, I'm not so sure...

And I thought it was just me. Immediately before the full moon I was really "outside of myself". I don't know how to describe it any other way. Slightly adrift. I had the same experience yesterday all day and as I awoke this morning I felt almost ill. We have converging air systems this morning and I felt the cloud banks coming together all around the city before I saw them. It was my wonderfully sensitive man who pointed out how weather disturbances effect me when I mentioned feeling ill.
