    Heart beats, footsteps, turn signals, dripping faucets, babies sleeping, all have a rhythm of their own.  Drums and drumming have been apart of the human expression from the beginning of time.  Womanspace gathers a group monthly to express our joy of rhythm with whatever instrument we  have, or  would like to borrow.  If you have a djembe, dunan, frame drum, or any other percussive instrument please bring them.. We encourage all ages,to come to enjoy the camaraderie of making music together. We will explore traditional drumming rhythms, the rhythms of sayings, Nursery rhymes,  and connect with each other and to the earth. We will also express some emotions through drumming.  Anger ,love , fellowship and contentment can also be expressed as we settle into the rhythm of drumming out our human nature. No talent,  drum or previous experience required.

    Advance registration appreciated. Walk-ins welcome.

    Most of the time we exist in mindlessness, a state of semi-awareness governed by habit and inattention. Mindlessness causes us to suffer, probably more than we are even aware. Mindfulness can be defined in a variety of ways, but simply stated it is a deliberate way of paying attention to what is happening within oneself as it is happening. Mindfulness is moment-by-moment awareness. It’s paying attention without judgment or evaluation. When we are mindful, we become more mentally alert, we’re more open and attentive and we’re able to perceive ourselves more clearly – as well as observing details that often escape our notice. If you can identify with any of these statements, you may find this monthly group very helpful.

    *Note: there must be a minimum of 4 people registered by Friday preceding class in order for class to run.

    Have you ever experienced something you just can't explain and haven't been able to talk about it? Do you get feelings that you know something is going to happen? Do you think you see something and then it isn't there? Have you been somewhere and suddenly feel your hair raising on your arms, or feel a cold chill run through your body? Do you have pictures or video of unexplained objects or balls of light? In this group we will share our experiences, pictures, videos, and stories we have with the unknown in a safe, nurturing, and nonjudgemental environment. 
    Members of the group may choose to go on field trips and learn how to use different equipment to gain better insight on what we are experiencing.

    The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

    Alaska, 1974. A story of a family in crisis struggling to survive at the edge of the world. Cora Albright and her husband Ernt, a recently-returned Vietnam vet scarred by the war, uproot their 13-year-old daughter Leni to start a new life in Alaska. Utterly unprepared for the weather and the isolation but welcomed by the close-knit community, they fight to build a home in this harsh, beautiful wilderness. An epic story of human survival and love, and an intimate portrait of a family tested beyond endurance.

    Registration is appreciated. Walk-ins are welcome.
