Mar 1, 2:00pm - Mar 1, 3:30pm

Sacred Arts Research Foundation
107 Green St
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

The Sacred Arts Research Foundation and Golden Drum Community members have been cultivating their connection to sacred sound, chanting and mantra and medicine songs from around the world. Under the guidance and inspiration of Maestro Manuel Rufino, Taino Elder & world director of M.A.I.S.C, we have come together to create an educational platform for sacred songs to be learned.

Music is one of the deepest forms of prayer and healing that we carry with us throughout our lives. To learn, carry and sing a sacred song is an ability we all have, we simply need to tap into it. In this course, we invite you to tap into your own ability to use sacred song as a study, practice and way of prayer and expression. We will create an environment that promotes the development and learning of traditional sacred songs from all around the world. Each class will focus on a selection of songs, where we will learn the pronunciation, translation, and intention of the songs, as well as covering the melodic and rhythmic structure of singing the song.

Please bring a journal and pencil so that you may keep a record of the songs you learn. Bring a drum or rattle if you have one. All singing levels are welcome.

Please arrive 5 minutes early so we may start on time:)

WE WILL NOT BE LIVE STREAMING THIS CLASS AGAIN UNTIL APRIL.

REGISTRATION DONATION FOR THIS CLASS WILL BE COLLECTED IN PERSON.

We are very happy to welcome Drukmo Gyal from Tibet and Adrian DiMatteo from New York to Golden Drum on March 11th for all of us to experience beautiful Mantra Meditation and the spiritual sound of music.

Mantra means mind protection. Drukmo Gyal is from the Northeastern part of Tibet - from a yogi family where mantra, yoga, and meditation were shared through her family lineage. With support from the Tibetan yogi community, Drukmo Gyal has practiced mantras with ancient melodies. She began singing publicly in 2008, and achieved top 40 in a Chinese national singing contest in 2010, but due to her university studies drew back from a possible singing career. She went to Europe in 2014, published her first album “Purification Voice Of Tibet” in Spain (2015), and started touring European countries, Russia, Malaysia, and China with local musicians, not only in concert halls but also in hospitals, disability centers, and senior homes.

Her second album “Tibetan Mantra Healing” was released in April 2016 and is an ancient healing system the belongs to Traditional Tibetan Medicine. She has studied Traditional Tibetan Medicine with Dr. Nida Chenagtsang and teaches the Tibetan art of mantra healing all over the world.

Adrian DiMatteo is a guitarist, singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist from New York. He received formal training in jazz performance, music theory, and history from the Eastman School of Music. Now he studies sacred songs and mantras from around the world, and the science of sound healing. He recently developed Guitar Handbook, a chord learning app for aspiring guitarists of all levels. He also teaches music and practices music therapy.

Heart of the Earth: Drum Making Ceremony (Blue Healing Drum)

Heart of the Earth: Drum Making Ceremony (Blue Healing Drum)

Apr 1, 10:00am - Apr 1, 7:00pm

Sacred Arts Research Foundation
107 Green St
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

The drum is a sacred instrument that invokes the heart and speaks a universal language. Its rhythmic heartbeat is at the center of ceremonies held by people all over the world. The shamanic drum is used to communicate with the Spirit and to connect our hearts with the heartbeat of the Earth. It is a powerful medicine that heals the body, heart, mind, and spirit.

In this workshop we will come together in a sacred space to create our own ceremonial drums and learn a frame drum-tying technique that we received from our communities spiritual leader and elder, Maestro Manuel Rufino.

We will be making one-sided hand drums, using wooden frames made of maple and elk, buffalo or deer hide, and sinew.

**In this special class we will give our students the option of dying their hide in natural indigo dye. You do not need to dye your drum, but please do notify us if you would like to do this.

The creation of the drum is a prayer and a ceremony in itself. We will work with our drums as a visioning meditation for our lives and our paths, so that our thoughts and intentions remain in a high vibration as we create the drums and through that process they become part of the drums. During that time we will share and listen to sacred songs from different Native traditions. Making your own personal drum is a sacred journey and the power of making something like this with your own hands is incredible, it becomes an extension of your own heart & mind.

COST: $275 for 16" drum or $295 for 18" drum

A $35 additional cost collected the day of class if the student decides to indigo dye their hide. Please let us know if you would like to do this.

Heart&Mind Festival 2017 Poland - 08.2017

Heart&Mind Festival 2017 Poland - 08.2017

Aug 11, 5:00pm

okolice Warszawy

Hej, witajcie! Mamy nowiny w sprawie Festiwalu Heart&Mind w Warszawie. Udało nam się znaleźć świetne, nowe miejsce na festiwal - bardzo się z tego cieszymy 🙂 Miejsce idealnie nadaje się do naszych działań jednak wymaga jeszcze sporo pracy.
Dlatego zdecydowaliśmy się przenieść festiwal na rok 2017.
Dzięki temu przekierujemy naszą energię w przygotowanie lokalizacji spełniającej potrzeby festiwalu i uczestników 🙂
Zatem prace nad samym festiwalem nie ustają - zostańcie z nami 🙂

***
Czy wiecie, że festiwal Heart&Mind ma już 5 lat? My już szykujemy jubileusz i cieszymy się na spotkanie starych przyjaciół oraz nowych uczestników naszego festiwalu! W tym roku spotykamy się pod Warszawą, w zupełnie nowej scenerii - będzie zielono i będzie pachniało lasem i łąką!
Jak co roku, z czterech stron świata przybędą ludzie tradycji, wiedzy i sztuki, by przez trzy letnie dni wspólnie swiętować budzącą się nową świadomość!

Zgodzili sie być z nami znowu: wspaniały muzyk, multiinstrumentalista i nauczyciel - Tito la Rosa oraz główny wizjoner Festiwalu - Maestro Manuel. Będą kochani przyjaciele z tradycji Majów i przyjaciele z USA, ale również zupełnie nowi goście! Będziemy uchylać rąbka tajemnicy stopniowo, ale jedno jest pewne - nie zawiedziecie się! 🙂

PIERWSZY DZIEŃ POŚWIĘCIMY TYLKO KOBIETOM, zapraszając je do świętowania i dzielenia się swoję mocą i pięknem! Chcemy, aby był to dar od kobiet dla kobiet, więc liczne warsztaty i zajęcia - rękodzieła, muzyki, tańca, medytacji i inne - poprowadzą zaproszone nauczycielki, szamanki, mniszki, artystki, dule, polożne, psycholożki, działaczki, a wieczorem spotkamy się na wielkim zgromadzeniu kobiet - przy śpiewie, muzyce i ogniu.

Kolejne dni, podobnie jak w latach ubiegłych, pełne będą ceremonii, warsztatów, wykładow i muzyki, i otwarte dla wszystkich bez względu na płeć i wiek. A wszystko to w pieknej letniej atmosferze!

Kochani, mamy nadzieję, że przybędziecie jeszcze liczniej niż w ubiegłych latach, że wesprzecie nasze przedsięwzięcie dobrą myślą, modlitwą i działaniem. Będziemy na bieżąco informować Was o przygotowaniach, będziemy, jak co roku, zapraszać wolontariuszy, kucharzy, wystawców i innych wspólpracowników. Jesteśmy w kontakcie!
