We were thrilled last Sunday when 4 adults asked if they could join the DrumJam, ages 30 - 75. Three were congregants who had rarely, if ever, joined in anything R.E. related. Our answer - "Can you ever! Please do!"
Michael Newman, SpiritJam staff, is a djembe drummer and leads the Pagan Group at nearby Naropa Institute. He led the DrumJam as an exploration of our monthly theme of "Unity." Here's his description: "We will explore the theme of unity as expressed through the art of drumming. In many of the world’s religious traditions, drums are used as an important tool for setting a group pace and establishing a groupmind for raising energy within the context of ritual. We will be using this physical practice as a gateway into extending our physical unity into a mental and spiritual connection."
There were also youth and children, a truly muli-age group. When I asked the adults how it was for them, they mentioned only that they wished it was longer.
I am eager to continue hacking away at the boundaries between kid and adult programming!
