ecocentric drumming and rituals for health & wellbeing

for the earth.
for the animals.
for ourselves.

 

Welcome to Pattern Percussion. I'm excited to drum with you, and so grateful for this opportunity to create a kind and compassionate space, centered around music, our stories, our rhythms, our choices... our patterns.
As we connect to our own patterns, we can see how our patterns effect all beings in the global community.

As we become more aware of our patterns, we can begin to have a dialogue about ways to bring more peace into the world for everyone.


 

Old Study

Hello Friends!

As winter arrives, it is time to go within. Time to snuggle up by the fireplace, time for hot beverages, time to sit in your favorite chair and read a good book (or several books). But going within is not just about the indoors; it is also about our inner artistic and creative worlds. During this time indoors, we are challenged to find inspiration not only in the snowy landscape, but in our homes, relationships, and everyday objects. I find that this inspiration comes to me in a clear way when I act mindfully. For me, taking the time to care is a practice that enhances everything in my world; my relationships, my home, my objects, and my inner world. This enhancement, gives me the space inside of myself that I need to feel inspired and be creative. As a vegan, I'm intentional about my choices and mindfulness is just another way of being intentional. And as the holidays approach, a mindful and intentional practice can make them feel more inspired. And it is from this place that we as vegans (and children, siblings, spouses, parents, etc.) can do our best work, creatively, for our relationships, and for the world.

In gratitude, 

 

             -A.K.

Why Vegan Drums?

Because each and every creature deserves to be honored and respected.

Because we are stewards of the environment.

Because in this modern era there is no need for anyone to have their skin made into a musical instrument.

Because our actions ripple out, effecting the world around us, and they become our patterns...

and we can do amazing things with our choices.

Because we can do better, so why not?
