DRUMMING AT PAGAN CAMPS.
We have been asked many times to create a drumming circle at Pagan camps.
We tend to drum within a circle creating a place where all are equal.
Calling on the Four Powers or Directions ,however simply done, creating a Sacred space. This allows those who wish to use that space and Drumming to Meditate , Journey or connect with spirit. But for others who are not spiritually inclined it allows them to put the everyday world behind, Take some time for themselves and relax.
Although Del and I tend to be from the Celtic Traditions ,We try to make this sacred space an area for all , for those from other Traditions , Different religions, backgrounds and for those who don’t have a particular religious or Spiritual Lifestyle. It's an area where all can come along and Drum.

Wherever you live you will see nature at work trying to replenish the land and turn it back to how it should be .
What can we do to help. Whether you have a large piece of land or the smallest plot we can all do something to help. Hold rituals in that place , create sacred space. Even in the smallest spot it can make a big difference to how the land feels.
Give something back .We often go to one of the local fields ,take a rubbish bag and pick up some of the litter. Not only does it make the place look better but you are doing a bit for the community, even if it is just clearing the bit around your property.
Recycling Every little helps. Or looking after your bit of land
In creating ceremony in this way it allows one to meditate on what action we might take to promote healing for a specific place But also what you wish to do to help put something back for the Planet and Future generations
Drumming can be done for the sheer enjoyment ..We often organise drumming parties and events just for the Drumming

Medical research study indicates that drumming boosts the immune system.. Other studies have demonstrated the calming, focusing, and healing effects of drumming on patients and valuable treatment for stress, fatigue, anxiety, hypertension, headaches, asthma, chronic pain, arthritis, and sleep and emotional disorders.
As well as the numerous benefits of drumming that are associated with empowerment, communication, confidence, community and team building, the drum has an amazing ability to facilitate healing and therefore there are also many health benefits associated with playing a drum and participating in a rhythm-based event.
