Music, pp. 99, 176

Dance and music mediate between the sensual and the spiritual life.  Ludvig van Beethoven (modified quote)

thExperiencing the drum circles, they tend to be universal. In the words of the Grateful Dead drummer, Mickey Hart, a drum circle is “typically, where people gather to drum in drum “circles” with others from the surrounding community. The drum circle offers equality because there is no head or tail. It includes people of all ages. The main objective is to share rhythm and get in tune with each other and themselves. To form a group consciousness. To entrain and resonate. By entrainment, I mean that a new voice, a collective voice, emerges from the group as they drum together.”

It is always a celebration to life. L’chaim!


On page 99, Stefan is introduced to a drum circle. On page 176, the curandera Habika’s life is honored.
