Drumming in community
EDINA, Minn. – Community drumming and healing is now taking place every Sunday morning, from 9-11 a.m. at The Center for Wholeness, 4506 Valley View Road, in Edina.
"Science tells us that nothing is really solid," explains organizer Karen Johnson. "All molecules and atoms are vibrating or moving. Even the table or computer keyboard that I am using vibrates at its most basic level. Solid things simply vibrate at a slower rate. Indeed the planet, Grandmother Earth, vibrates. That’s is why we drum.
"Drumming with frame drums, african drums, snare drums, drumming on a box or shaking rattles allows us to unite with the vibrations of Grandmother earth. When we join together, the parts become a whole and we become one with Grandmother Earth. This unity in purpose is a way to synchronize our hearts, our energies and intentions. This unity supports ritual, community, healing and wholeness. We drum to create community, to practice ritual and to unite our strength with that of Grandmother Earth."
Johnson says participants drum with intention.
"Intention is created when we approach Spirit with truth and with expectation," she says. "Our intentions are for personal clarity, healing for ourselves and others, for the children, the animals, in joy and for peace. We join together in unison drumming with a rhythm and freedom that unites us…sometimes drifting apart, but at all times united by a common beat. We do not drum for ecstasy, nor in anger, nor in abandon.
"When we drum, we also recognize the need to sing, to tone, to dance, to whistle and pray. We also use didgeridoos, finger harps, violins, rainsticks and flutes. When we drum, when we pray with the drum, Spirit can hear us."
