A drumming circle at the Center for Sacred Studies in Guerneville might be a rewarding way to celebrate the full moon. Led by Laura C. Strom who trained with Michael Harner and Sandra Ingraman, the Circle will begin promptly at 7p.m. with a smudging ritual. The drumming is scheduled to begin at 7:15p.m. The organizers request that you bring a journal, pen, water and a drum and/or rattle if you have one. Say the event’s hosts, “we will be taken on a journey with the drum to connect with your power animal.”
Suggested donation to the Center is $10.00
The Center is at 13550 Church St., Guerneville
