Women's Drum Circle :: Exploring the Elements // WATER

  • Women's Drum Center 2242 University Ave West St. Paul, Minnesota 55114 (map)

I am collaborating with my dear, wild friend Gabriel Ross to bring you a special drumming event to explore the four elements and what they can teach us…

Women’s Drum Circle :: Exploring the Elements // WATER

An evening of meditation, drumming, breathing, and exploring.

The elements of air, water, fire, and earth have unique and inspiring aspects that we can embody and bring their lessons back into our lives.  When we connect to the natural rhythms of the planet and her seasons, we tune in to our own ability to grow, bloom, release, and begin again.

Water is an essential element to life on this planet. 71% of the earth is made up of water and up to 60% of our body is water!  It is cleansing, nourishing, refreshing, and healing. We’ll explore our connection to water by discussing its properties, embodying its unique qualities, and inviting in the lessons it has to teach us by drumming, journeying, and sharing.


Bring with you a favorite drum, if you have your own (plenty of drums provided if you need one!) and a blanket or yoga mat if you’d like to lie down for the meditation. No experience with drumming or meditation necessary!
