The healing power of drumming has been around as long as our hearts have been beating. Patriarchal religions have erased this part of our spiritual history and forgotten its power as transformative sustenance. Layne Redmond was a prophetic force in bringing the history of women drummers to light, restoring to us a lost lineage of the feminine divine, of women as healers, shamans, priestesses and empowered creators of our lives. There is much to learn through reading, and more to learn through experiencing a Women’s Drumming Circle for yourself, through finding your unique voice and rhythm as well as your place in the greater whole.
This circle offers connection with spirit, self and others through sacred sound and rhythm. Newcomers welcome, no experience necessary. Some drums are available, but bring your own if you have one.
Dionne Kohler-Newvine carries her link to the Ancient Mother’s heartbeat wherever she goes. She is a singer, song writer, guitarist, Reiki practitioner and Drumming Priestess at herchurch. Dionne has been drumming since age three and cultivated her use of rhythm and tone in high school marching band and drum and bugle corps. She also worked as a drum technician for rock bands in the 90s. In recent years, her focus has been the spiritual nature and transformative power of drumming, particularly as it relates to women’s lives and healing. She weaves in other healing modalities, such as Reiki and intuitive vocalizations, in her drumming circles and individual healing sessions.
The Voice of the Sacred Drum, a “mini drumming circle” is included in the Liturgy of the Divine Feminine on Sunday Mornings at 10:30 AM on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays. Other Sundays include the use of drums and instruments during the chants and hymns and prayers.
