My Inspiration is the sound of the drums.

The feel of the rhythm joining  people together Usually round a camp fire.

Accompanied by parting. But always the sprit of being part of something.

I always imaged our ancestors  Dancing around a similar camp fire

either in festivity or some Tribal ceremony.


Drumming  is the beat of the heart.

The beating pulse of the Earth , of life.  The rhythm of the Universe.


My inspiration is MY DRUM I go where it takes me .

I’ll go were it guides me .

It tells me what I must do .

The information I need to collect.

Connects me to individuals who inspire me.

Offers help and guidance.

Tells of the activities I need to do , the meditations and journeys I must undertake.


It heals me, Guides me,  Inspires me. Connect me with Spirit,Ancestors ,

My Guides and Totem Animals.

The Gods

It draws spirit.  

Takes me to the otherworld.

It leads me to Understanding .

Arwen, Nirvana , Enlightenment.

I am my drum, my Drum is me...

Trance Dance a blend of body movement, healing sounds, dynamic  percussive rhythms, transformational breathing techniques – together stimulating a ‘trance’ state that promotes spiritual awakenings.

Dance like our ancestors did

Dance to the djembe beat

Dance like there’s no-one watching.

Follow the drum beat to take your body where ever it wants to go and allowing your mind to fly in a form of shamanic journeying.
