 HI "One-Heart Community Drum" Folks!,
     Apologies for my absence of a newsletter, and my non=presence last weekend at drum circle. I have been experiencing some relapse of my cancer, and needing to take some time off work, and off drumming to handle it. I am working with my doctors, and hope to get things back under control. In the interim, please attend the Saturday sessions at the park, and keep the spirits flying! Much Love, Steve

    The focus of the circle is to get people to spirit Dance and chant to live tribal drums raising energies for peace,love, harmony, and respect. We will be doing this in the rustic Henge we built at The Tea Garden Ithaca, which we call "The Well", which is behind Sheela's house in the woods.  Far enough to not interfere with what is going on at the house or have the live music interfere with us or our drumming with them, but close enough to be quick and easy to reach.   So we will be drumming constantly for people to come and spirit dance and chant to live tribal drums to raise positive energies for peace, love, strength,harmony and respect. 
     Come and spirit dance sand chant to live tribal drums to raise positive energies for peace, love, strength,harmony and respect. On going at "The Well."  Just follow the path behind Sheela's house and come and dance and chant. We will not have extra drums so if you wish to drum, bring one!
