Laney Goodman

Sacred Drum, Chant and the Mother Drum

with Laney Goodman

We will drum, chant and dance in the four directions of the Medicine Wheel.

Native American traditions teach us that each of the four directions carry certain elements, qualities and totems.

We will learn how to best be in balance together in a tribal way - once again bringing forth the old wisdom into our present time, where it is needed for healing our hearts, minds, and the global community.

Please, bring bells, shakers, rattles, and drums of all types. And the MOTHER DRUM will help keep the one or the heartbeat throughout our Journey. Some of you will have the chance to play the Mother Drum if you so choose.

Ceremonial drum & chant teaches us the power of deep listening and helps take us deeper into community to find our commonUNITY... as we heal ourselves and our Mother Earth. For All Our Relations-A-Ho!
