Drum Circle Saturday, Jan. 17, at 5 p.m. During Healing Festival

Lightning-Struck DrumsI’ll be leading a shamanic drum circle at 5 p.m. this Saturday (Jan. 17, 2015) during the Healing Festival here in Elizabethtown. (See previous post for more details.) It will begin with a short talk about the sacred healing power of drums, and ways to incorporate that “medicine” power into your daily life.  Then we’ll all drum up some of that medicine!

So bring your drum if you have one (I’ll have a few available, too), or just join the circle to share your beautiful energy (and to receive some as well).

We will have a booth at the Festival, of course, and you’ll get to see some wonderful NEW shamanic drums. Oh my, there are some real beauties waiting for you! I’m excited to introduce a whole new line of Budget Drums, a new Lightning-Struck Drum, and some delightful new hoop drums made in the style of the oldest drums known to humans.

It will be an honor to meet you, my friend, and I look forward to spending some time with you during this festival dedicated to many paths of service, friendship and spiritual exploration.  It will be a wonderful time to connect with Spirit!

Aho & Namaste,

Join the Circle Within a Circle at the Healing Festival, Coming Jan. 17, 18

healing festival in Elizabethtown KY

I am so eager and looking forward to sharing time with you at the annual Healing Festival here in Elizabethtown, January 17-18, 2015 (see details, left). It will be a great light in the heart of dark winter.

And there will be a circle within a circle!

You’ll find many, many healers and vendors on hand, many of whom will offer free mini-seminars on the hour throughout both days. Some of these include aromatherapists, energy healers, clairvoyants, alternative and complementary healing practitioners, and a host of others, all dedicated in service of one sort or another to your well being and spiritual interests. It looks to be a great gathering at just the right time of year to lift your spirits amid the coldest days of winter and while the moon sleeps. You will be amongst like-minded people and in a circle of friends.

For my part, I intend to offer a short talk about the power of healing available from drumming, and to then lead a drumming circle so you can feel that powerful medicine–and help to generate it– for yourself and others. A circle within a circle!

I’ll have a few extra drums on hand so you can play one during the circle, or please feel free to bring your own drum if you have one. All are welcome!

I’ll post the time for the talk and drumming circle here on the blog as soon as the event organizer lets me know. There will also be impromptu drumming throughout the Festival, too, and you can join in anytime you wish.

You’ll also have access to a bevy of new shamanic drums for sale at my booth, including a new LIGHTNING-STRUCK drum that will be born on New Year’s Day. A beautiful New Year’s baby! Plus, I’ll have an armload of fresh herbs and sweetgrass available so you can stock up on smudging supplies, as well as some recently made medicine bags and other items. Also, and for the first time at the Festival, I will be offering short shamanic healing energy sessions on a first come, first served basis in the afternoons for a slight cost.

Admission to the Festival is only $7, or if you bring a canned food item to donate to a good cause, it’s a mere $5 for the entire day.  For more information, contact Virginia Gilpin at mscherub@aol.com, or visit her Website (which will be updated with current info for the Festival around Jan. 1).

Hope to see you there, my friend!

Aho & Namaste,
