West African Drum Lessons with Chris Helvey

Saturday December 16th 3-5pm, $25 sliding scale

We will start at the beginning and learn two traditional rhythms. These drum classes are somewhat self-leveling in terms of student experience level. Beginners will get to learn the basics and more experienced players will learn the nuances of the rhythm. A few djembes will be available for rent.  First come first server. What we will learn:

  • Tradition West African Beats
  • Playing tips
  • Woman friendly (No egos here)
  • Fun and supportive
  • Beginners welcome
  • Recorded for practicing

Chris has been a drummer since the age of eight. Around twenty years ago, he was intrigued by the Djembe as an instrument and upon discovering the music it supported, came an "Aha!" about rhythm. What followed became a deep learning experience of West African rhythm, along with following the influences it has had on western music. He has traveled to Guinea, West Africa to learn from the source, and has studied with many masters both African and American. His teachers have been Mamady Keita (Conakry,) Famadou Konate' (Conakry,) Fadouba Oulare (Faranah,) Ryan Edwards (Boston,) Michael Taylor (Chicago,) Michael Markus (New York,) and Bruce Langhorn (Los Angeles,) among others.

Chris also plays guitar, congas, and anything that makes a sound. African music runs in his blood even while playing slack-key guitar. He often says that the influence of African music in his his own life and music style is like the egg in a cake. You can't separate them anymore.

Inner Dolphin Awakening - In-depth Self Exploration Workshop

Inner Dolphin Awakening ~ In-depth Self-exploration Workshop 

When: Saturday, 12/9/17, 1-5pm, Suggested contribution: $65

Discover 7 dolphin points on human body

What if everything you knew to be true about dolphins was inside you? Could it be that, in a quantum way, there's already a part of you that knows pure joy and dolphins are just trying to remind you of that?

This workshop is designed to open the door and start building a bridge to a quantum part of you called Inner Dolphin. Jan has discovered 7 dolphin points on human body, that are like inter-dimensional gateways, that allow for the qualities that we admire in dolphins to start flowing into our lives. It is both simple and profound. And it starts with self-love. If love is the basis for telepathy and inter-species communication then self-love is the basis for communication between your human self and other levels of your consciousness.

7 dolphin points are simply invitations, it is for you to do the journey and claim what has always been yours. Are you ready?

1. Dolphin nose: CURIOSITY

“I am curious and I love to explore.”

2. Dolphin smile: JOY

“I am joyful and I love life.”

3. Dolphin eyes: BEAUTY

“I see the beauty and blessings of life.”

4. Blowhole: BREATH

“I breathe deeply. I use my breath to bring in my soul.”

5. Pectoral fins: TELEPATHY

“My heart is always open. I explore telepathy and inter-species communication.”

6. Dorsal fin: MULTI-DIMENSIONALITY

“I am a multi-dimensional being, filled with light, color and sound. Self-love builds a bridge to my quantum nature.”

7. Dolphin tail: GAIA

“I embody Gaia. I am one with the soul of the planet.”

This workshop will be filled with practical exercises (individual and group), meditations and Inner Dolphin explorations. You will get spiritual tools to take home and use in your daily life. The intention is for a permanent change to occur within you, where you become aware of the beauty of your soul. And hopefully you get to laugh in the process and enjoy the ride!
