Our quarterly drum circle, Healing Rhythms, is an opportunity to nourish your spirit. The ancient practice of drumming uses rhythms to promote healing and self-expression. Drumming boosts the immune system, produces a feeling of well-being, helps to release emotional trauma and can accelerate physical healing.
No experience is needed – seriously! We provide the drums, or you may bring your own.
We meet in Forest Chapel at College Park Baptist Church. Suggested donation – $5.
Come and join us in the circle.
What Participants are Saying
“Healing Rhythms provided a very safe spiritual place for my first drumming experience. Drumming allowed me to tap into deep feelings – at the time I had a lot of anger, hurt and sadness due to my brother’s suicide death. Drumming allowed me to release those feelings. I left the drumming circle feeling lighter, more spiritually connected and more at peace. Monica provides additional non-denominational readings and prayers that enhance the entire experience. I look forward to future drumming circles!” – Joni M.
Centering Prayer is a practice of silent prayer that places a strong emphasis on interior silence and the invitation to let go of thoughts. The practice of selecting a sacred word to return to when thoughts start to grab our attention is a way of releasing and resting in the presence of God. This process can best be described through an quote from Cynthia Bourgeault, “resist no thought; retain no thought; react to no thought; return to the sacred word.” (from Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening, pg.39-40) The practice of 20 minutes of silence is an opportunity to deepen our relationship with the living Christ and to transform our lives.
In addition to encouraging and supporting individuals in a daily personal practice of Centering Prayer, we also host a weekly group Centering Prayer circle. If you would like more information about that gathering please subscribe to our mailing list or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
