Drum meditation is not passive. It is an activity that includes giving and receiving. “Feedback loops” come to mind. How do words come in like that–spontaneously–without the mental mind figuring it out but rather simply being a receiver? Seems to me it’s a mind that is both passive in receptivity (feminine) and active with information (masculine). Is this not “intelligence?” If so our education system needs a serious overhaul. Learning from the inside out rather than outside in. How many are interested in going within to learn this new language: The Language of the Sacred Feminine and Masculine, The Language of S/He?
Sunday morning, I stood in a new location to drum. This branch with decaying leaves of Autumn also held birthing buds of Spring. What a story of Oneness this told! Just like a spiral and the staircase (that came through during this meditation) energy moves in two directions: inward and outward, contracting and expanding as one flowing motion. I invite you to step into this flowing motion with drumming, rattling, chanting, praying, etc. It will add sparks of enchantment to your ordinary life.
