The Sacred Arts Research Foundation and Golden Drum Community members have been cultivating their connection to sacred sound, chanting, mantra, folkloric and healing 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 our school, 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:)

Donations are welcome but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Lunation Kundalini Shakti Transmission: The Day of The Guru

Jul 10, 7:30pm - Jul 10, 9:15pm

Golden Drum
97 Green St, # G1
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

Lunation is back and it's Guru Purnima the Full Moon where the grace of the Guru is abundant. Guru Purnima is called the day of the Master or the Teacher within. It is the new year for a spiritual seeker and also the day to reflect on the journey of the past year.

Gratitude is a quality ingrained in us that we often forget to express. This full moon is a day of celebrating the fullness in our life and within us, and expressing that gratitude. When the Moon is Full, the Moon, the Earth and the Sun are in alignment. The Moon is wholly lit up by the rays of the Sun making it a harmonious time to dig deeper into our authentic selves. The theme of this Auspicious Full Moon is devotion to oneself, self-love, and unwavering acceptance in gratitude.

A Capricorn Full Moon and Sun in Cancer time ask us to examine and consider what we need to feel at home and protected while scaling greater heights. Under the Gurus grace and this beautiful Full Moon we will honor our inner Guru through Kundalini, and a fire ceremony, Mantra and Sound allowing us to create more nurturing self love under this spiritual New Year.

*Please bring a journal and anything for the altar for activation.

Shamanic Reiki Level 1 Training

Shamanic Reiki Level 1 Training

Jul 9, 11:30am - Jul 9, 8:30pm

Golden Drum
97 Green St, # G1
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

Sunday, July 9th, 11:30am to 8:30pm

Shamanic Reiki is a very gentle and intuitive way to meet your inner healer.
In this workshop you will receive an introduction into shamanic healing and Reiki, the nature of the light body, the 7 main chakras, and how to connect with the universal life energy that allows healing to happen.

Shamanic Reiki is a practice that combines the wisdom of the shamanic traditions with the techniques of Reiki. It is beautiful way to awaken and develop your healing abilities, even if you have already received your Reiki 1 attunement elsewhere. Shamanic Reiki focuses on building our relationship to the energy of healing within a shamanic framework.

Brooke, Leona, and Nicole are all students of Maestro Manuel Rufino, elder and guide of the Golden Drum community where they have been studying Shamanic Healing practices. We are very grateful to be integrating some of the teachings passed to us to create a well-rounded Reiki Healing Course.

In Shamanic Reiki Level I you will learn:

The history & the 5 Principles of Reiki
How to treat yourself with Reiki
How to identify and remove energy blocks
How to approach self-healing
Introduction to the 4-elements and the Medicine Wheel
How to build and activate an altar for healing
How to begin to work with sacred herbs for smudging.
Reiki induces deep relaxation, activates the parasympathetic nervous system, and helps the body and mind release tension, stress, and anxiety.

Deep healing occurs once the relaxation response comes online, and while seeing other healers and going to workshops and classes is very enriching, no healing is more profound than the one you can give to yourself.

Upon completion of the course you will receive a Shamanic Reiki Level 1 Attunement and Certificate from the Usui System of Natural Healing.

Tea and fruit will be provided.

We will have a 45 minute break for lunch. You can bring your own, or we are just a block away from the Jungle Cafe.

Please bring your notebooks and writing tools and any offerings or items to charge on the Altar through our training.

Cost for Level 1: $300

Cost for Level 2: $475

Cost for Level 1 & 2: $675

Shamanic Kalimba: A Concert of 3 Kalimba Masters

Jul 7, 8:00pm - Jul 7, 10:00pm

Golden Drum
97 Green St, # G1
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

A Concert with Kevin Spears, Kevin Nathaniel, and Congolese Kalimba Shaman Titos Sompa.

Join Golden Drum in welcoming both Congolese Kalimba Shaman Titos Sompa and kalimba master Kevin Spears to New York City. Mr. Sompa utilizes his multiple talents to make known and keep alive Congolese musical and cultural traditions that offer healing, spiritual grounding, and affirming community to the Western world. Kevin Spears is moving the kalimba forward for future generations to embrace its possibilities. An internationally aclaimed kalimba master, Kevin Spears has been a major force in the kalimba world for years. This is a rare opportunity to experience a Kalimba Shaman from the Congo and two of the leading forces of the kalimba world all together - Kalimba Maestros Kevin Spears and Kevin Nathaniel; a concert not to be missed!

Titos Sompa

Titos Sompa is the Founder and Artistic Director of Mbongi Dance Theater Project. Originating from the Congo (Brazzaville), Titos Sompa is a charismatic and extraordinarily gifted performing artist, teacher, and healer. Since arriving in America from Paris, where he taught music and dance and toured Europe with his band, Les Echos Noir, he has inspired artists, students, and audiences with his African cultural orientation that holistically integrated music, dance, singing, folklore and spirituality. Mr. Sompa was the first to introduce the earthly and fluid Congolese style of simultaneous dancing and singing to America audiences. In the early 1970’s, he and lead drummer, Coster Massamba, brought Congolese culture to the New York artistic scene.

He is a supremely gifted singer, composer, recording artist, choreographer, storyteller, artisan of African folk crafts, producer, director, trainer, and teacher. Mr. Sompa founded the first Congolese dance company (Tanawa Dance Company) in America. He joined the New York dance and theater scene, and performed with James Earl Jones and Ann Miller, along with such jazz greats as Elvin Jones, Eddie Jefferson, Sun Ra, Ron Carter, Leon Thomas, Pharaoh Sanders, Dave Murray, Arthur Blythe, Olu Dara, and Chico Freeman, among others, before relocating to California where he became a magnet for the Congolese artistic community. Over the years he has trained and nurtured numerous Congolese artists, including Mbemba Jean Louis, Malonga Casquelourd, and Samba Ngo, as well as Fred Simpson, Oba Babatunde, and Monte Hallison, who later became masters in their own right. In 1988, Mr. Sompa founded Mbongi Dance Theatre Project, a nonprofit corporation dedicated to advancing and celebrating the cultural arts of Africa, especially the music and dance of the Congo.

Kevin Spears

"Kevin Spears puts on a performance full of groove, sound, and intimacy that draws you into his unique yet universal world". -Benoit Glazer musical director Cirque Du SOLEIL.

AfroPop WorldWide states: "Kevin Spears utilizes the traditionalAfrican instrument and tweaks it to create a soulful, funky sound that would make Stevie Wonder smile."

Hailed as one of the best players alive today, Kevin Spears' breathtaking ability on an electric version of the traditional African instrument called kalimba is often compared to music legends such as Herbie Hancock, Jimi Hendrix, Bobby McFerrin and Les Paul. Spears' music is a refreshing mix of folk, world, and soul that will move your feet and stir your soul.

Kevin Nathaniel

A leading force on the global mbira/kalimba scene, Kevin Nathaniel is a visionary musician who, with voice and ancient Afrikan instruments, channels sound as a universal healing force. Together, breathing rhythms to the beat of our synchronized hearts, Kevin Nathaniel resonates songs of the "big picture" of love in ways that propel the soul to dance! A long-time devotee of mbira, kalimba, circle song, drum, dance, meditation, and yoga; a world-traveled music healer sharing the musical medicine of the ancient, the now, and the beyond, Kevin Nathaniel brings a fresh, deep experience of the beauty of sound.

Golden Drum
97 Green St, # G1
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

How often do you move your body in ways that actually feel good to you... gentle, freeing, intuitive, non-static motion? Giant circular movements like the spiral arms of the galaxy. Stomping rhythms onto the ground with each foot print being like a blessing for the earth.

No alcohol. No dark night club. No seedy crowd. This dance is about light. It's about your light, and our light. It's about the light we co-create for the world by bringing conscious movement to life. About being awake, aware, willing to activate and heal, to let things go, to build an energy, to open your heart and connect to the heart of humanity.

Dancing is the perfect way to kick things up and turn things around. It roots you into the present moment. Whether you dance to break a sweat, express yourself, have a laugh, for exercise, for the sheer joy of it, or to shake something off. Incredible healing takes place through ecstatic movement.

Each class begins with a ritual card meditation from the Love Letters to Earth Oracle Deck. A wonderful body opening warm up to activate the muscles and joints for safe movement. A series of core strengthening exercise to stabilize your center. Curated songs to move, heal, connect, and break a sweat to - each one offered to a suggestion focus. The Light Body practice is sealed with gentle yoga and a guided Yoga Nidra Meditation.

It's a one stop shop to radiance. Let's glow together.

Bring your favorite friend to dance with and your water bottle!

TITO LA ROSA is a descendant of Quechua Indians of the Peruvian Andes. For many years, he has been recovering and preserving, studying and intuiting the ancestral music of Peru. He is also a Curandero de Sonido, a sound healer, who enters into an altered state to bring forth sound that elevates, allowing for healing and balance to occur.

Ancient Andean wisdom teaches us that the earth was made while the creator sang, thus all beings are made of sound, rhythm and harmony. Through his concerts, flower ceremonies and music classes La Rosa helps reawaken our memories (memoria antigua) - weaving sounds into frequencies that open the heart and encourage the spirit to soar.

La Rosa has recorded with Mary Youngblood on the Silver Wave record label. His 2002 CD, "The Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor," was nominated for a Native American Music Award, for Best World Music Recording.

Lunation is back under the expansive Sagittarius full moon. Sagittarius rules optimism, expansion, new experiences, and wants to focus on the good in life.

With a Sagittarius full moon, we're not as down and out emotionally. Fullness, completion, fruition, exaltation comes to all things Sagittarius. Ruled by the planet Jupiter, who brings good luck and fortune, moves direct on the full moon June 9th after being in retrograde since February 7th. This direct movement of Jupiter will have us rejoicing and we can can expect increased luck and enthusiasm.

During this Lunation, we will set the stage for prosperity (pro-spirit) with this current positive energy flowing through us so we can expand like the tides of the moon, and the Sagittarius energy using Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, and a sacred full moon ritual to open up to all that we are.

These installations have now traveled to many other events in the US and around the world.

Mantra Sadhana: Mantras for the New Moon in Gemini

May 25, 7:30pm - May 25, 8:30pm

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

“You are a cosmic flower. Chanting is the process of opening the psychic petals of that flower.” ― Amit Ray

Chanting mantra is an ancient technique known for its ability to evoke movement of the physical and emotional energy that we hold in our bodies.

The vibrations and sounds of mantra are considered extremely important, and thus reverberations of those sounds are said to awaken kundalini, our spiritual life force.

When we awaken these forces we encounter our divine essence and all becomes possible.

Participants will be guided through an immersive and ecstatic communal experience through the application of mantra ritual, guided meditation, breathing techniques and kirtan. Participants should dress comfortably with the ability to both move and sit with ease.

$10-$20 suggested donation.
No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
