The miracle of life and music came to be in the very same moment of creation. In the beginning was the Word—embodied sound—and then the word was made flesh.
All emerged from the Only One Source, issuing forth first as sound. That’s why sound, as primal as ancient drumming, is such a powerful force for bringing people together and bringing people back to what’s most real in themselves.
In the Miracles of Music, you’ll experience the power of authentic African rhythm languages and dance patterns bringing you into community and true communion with others and yourself. Together, we’ll explore the Mystery through drumming and dance, transcend fear, let go into surrender and reconnect to what is most healthy and holy. This experience, which generates compassion and peace, bridges cultures and promotes respect for others, evokes grace, and models positive life-affirming ways of relating.
Please bring your musical and rhythmic instruments such as hand drums, harps and bass guitar. Together, we’ll celebrate life, peace, unity and community.
Please arrive on time. Session will be closed once it starts due to the deep experiential nature of this program.
