WELCOME TO EARTH DRUM COUNCIL
The contemporary drumming movement is an integral part of a new culture, an emerging new paradigm that melds the ancient understanding of the interconnection of all things with a scientific worldview. And drumming is the soundtrack of the new story of Gaia, the story that tells of how humans may heal our relationship with our Home on Earth.
In many places, people are coming together in circle around the fire, to drum and dance and connect with each other and the Earth. Across all boundaries of religion and race, age and station, the people gather in rhythm to commune with Gaia. Each circle is unique, a living rhythmic being with its own life cycle. Yet each such gathering of pulsing drummers and swirling dancers has the same potential to transform the participants and bring them to that ecstatic place where the particular dissolves into the universal and the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts. When that potential is realized, each fully embodied person shines with beauty, and the location of the circle becomes irrelevant because everyone is simply Here Now. This place is perhaps the most profound Home of all.
JIMI TWO FEATHERS NEEDS OUR HELP!
Founder and co-director of Earth Drum Council, Jimi Two Feathers, has been creating spaces to drum and dance in community for nearly 40 years. Jimi suffered a stroke on May 21, 2017 while attending Rites of Spring. A gofundme website has been set up to help with medical expenses and physical therapy at his crucial time after a brain injury. Let's all help Jimi with his goal to drum again, thank you!
