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.

REGISTRATION ENDLINE: THURSDAY, MARCH 23rd

RAW Chocolate Making CLASS with Jerry Moon Murtagh

RAW Chocolate Making CLASS with Jerry "Moon" Murtagh

May 21, 3:00pm - May 21, 6:00pm

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

Join us for a fun and delicious afternoon learning the basics of raw chocolate preparation with Jerry "Moon" Murtagh, founder and chief chocolatier of Moonlight Chocolate. In this workshop you will learn how to make your own homemade gourmet, raw chocolate and go home with delights to share.

Raw chocolate opens the heart and brings warm feelings of positivity, creativity, and joy. As a natural antidepressant, cacao contains anadamide "the bliss molecule" and phenethylamine which triggers the release of endorphins. It is rich in magnesium, which is a necessary nutrient for heart health. Cacao, from which all chocolate is made, is world-renowned for its heart-opening properties and heavenly taste.

In this hands-on class, you will:

-Learn how to make gourmet raw chocolate in your own kitchen
-Understand the health benefits of raw chocolate, the heart-opening properties of cacao, and "tools of the trade" secrets for handcrafting pure yumminess!
-Taste each of the organic and raw ingredients and craft them into fine chocolate
-Create your own box of chocolate hearts for yourself or someone special

No prior experience is necessary. Participants will leave with the knowledge of how to make the most amazing chocolate at home and their own box of chocolate hearts. Additional ingredients, chocolates, and professional molds will be available for purchase.

Class cost: $35.00

Teacher Bio:

Jerry "Moon" Murtagh is the founder of Moonlight Chocolate, a raw, organic Chocolate company based out of New York City. He is a member of the Golden Drum Community and a longtime student of Maestro Manuel Rufino.

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!
