The drum is one of the main tools of the Shaman; the drum enables the Shaman to go on spiritual journeys through the ebb and flow of sounds and vibrations. The drum is not just a musical instrument; it is the symbol of the universe and encompasses the spirit and the strength of the Shaman. Drumming can create a wonderful sense of connectedness with self and others. The drum's rhythmic patterns can induce altered states consciousness, which can have a wide range of therapeutic applications. It has been reported that even a brief drumming session can dramatically reduce stress levels. The brain changes move from Beta waves (focused concentration and activity) to Alpha waves (calm and relaxed), and produces a feeling of ecstasy. As the shaman strikes the drum the human mind focuses on the repetitive and monotonous patterns which causes the internal chatter of the mind to quieten, eventually, silence is complete, which allows us to hear what the spirit of the drum is saying and we are then able to communicate with our guides in the sacred language of spirit. Shamanic drumming is a time-honoured method of healing and helping others. Shamanic drum circles provide the opportunity for people of like mind to unite for the attainment of a shared objective. There is power in drumming alone, but that power recombines and multiplies on many simultaneous levels in a group of drummers. The drums draw individual energies together, unifying them into a consolidated force. The Drumming Circle commences on 7th July. Bring along your drum if you have one. We have a few spares and some percussion instruments to share around. Time: 2.00pm – 4.00pm Cost: $15. Where: Soul Searchers Spiritual Centre -17/3 Richmond Ave, Sylvania Waters 5

Meditation is the art of clearing the mind of all mundane thoughts, feelings and the general noise of day-to-day living. It is a state of relaxation and peace, a state where you can control what you deal with and which thoughts and feelings you allow to pass through your consciousness. Usually during meditation the brain enters an altered state of consciousness known as 'alpha' - a state also entered during deep relaxation and dreaming. In the alpha state the brain waves register at between eight and fourteen cycles. This is close to the background energy cycles of the Earth itself. It is in the alpha state that we are able to enter and explore the other planes of reality that include the astral and spiritual planes creating a situation where we are much more open and receptive to the energies that exist all around us, rather just those on the more commonly recognised physical plane. Alpha is a state where we can expand into the vibrationary rates of the other planes of existence. Meditation is basically the means by which we gain access to the quantum reality; a greater sense of the breadth of reality than we are commonly aware of as a young adolescent, or even as an adult if we haven't looked or explored beyond the materialistic physical plane. Music and meditation can be an ideal combination to take you into higher states of consciousness. Studies have also shown that vibrations of rhythmic sounds have a profound effect on brain frequency. Meditation also has the effect of slowing respiration and decreasing the heart rate, thus lowering blood pressure. Because it creates a state of deep relaxation, meditation has several health benefits including strengthening the immune system and improving circulation, as well as increasing perceptual ability and decreasing anxiety. It is particularly effective in managing ailments aggravated by tension, e.g.: insomnia, pain, and breathing difficulties. Breathing and visualisation go hand in hand. The brain cannot tell the difference between reality and visualization. We are stronger, physically and mentally, when we relax. If we concentrate on making ourselves larger than the illness, we are able to rise above the problem. If we focus on the illness, then we become enmeshed in the illness, if we focus on the desired outcome or the solution to our daily problems, then we become involved in that solution or outcome. We are able to move ourselves forward, mentally through meditative techniques. Meditation is conducted at the Spiritual Centre every Tuesday Morning. Time: 11am – 12pm Cost: $10 per class.
