(This workshop requires a $10 fee and pre registration) This is considered a “Sacred” Instrument. You will be immersed in the process of creating your own instrument for spiritual practices. These instruments require a lot of personalized craftsmanship.
Ingredients you need to construct your Medicine Rattle.
- The handle: Put a lot of thought into what you want the handle to be made out of. Do you have a special tree? An antler from an animal. The handle from your mother’s favorite broom. The more personal and special the better!
- The insides: What do you put in the rattle? Put a lot of thought into it! The sound may not matter as much as the ingredients, if you have a strong connection to it. A very small crystal! Suggestion… sleep with a crystal under your pillow, take it with you everywhere, meditate on it. Then put it in your shaker.
Paralounge will provide:
- Pieces of goat skin to create the body of the shaker.
- Crafting supplies, such as, beads, paint and thread.
- The construction time varies. Must allow drying time, before completing some of the process.
Instructor, Summer Van Mun will inspire you and guide you through the process of creating a very special instrument.

7:00 pm : Orientation for “Circulation” Ceremony:
We use the term “Circulation” to define the bodily function and Social movement. The Circulation Ceremony is a unique approach to a meditation experience. Each participant will sign up for a there turn to circulate through a process.
- This process starts with dancing. According to the number of participants will determine the number of cycles. Each participant will sign up for a cycle. Example: Each time a group is brought into the “Meditation Space”, we will start a new cycle. So if you end up on the 3rd cycle. You must keep track of when it is your turn to dance, therefore you will know when you are taken into the “meditation space”.
- Each cycle will begin and end as the “Escort” approaches the drum circle and announces the new cycle. Example: An “Escort” will be sent to the circle, from the meditation space, to collect the next group for the next cycle. The dancers then follow the “escort” to the “meditation space”.
- Dancers are then brought into the meditation space. This space is a facilitated experience with Gongs, Chimes and Didgeridoos. The “Escorts” then return to the drum circle and drum for the next cycle. Those who are ending their “Meditation” will be asked to wait for the end of the next cycle, therefore becoming “Escorts”. At the end of the “meditation”, the “Escorts” then journey to the drum circle to collect the next group of dancers.
Example: Drum circle will start. The first group will dance (group A). They will be summoned to the meditation space. The dancers leave the drum circle, while the drum circle continues, and go to the “Meditation Space”. Meanwhile, the second group of dancers (group B) enter the drum circle and begin dancing, while the prior group (group A) is meditating.
Once the Meditation time is over, that group of people (group A) will be asked to wait for the next group to finish the “Meditation”(group B). Then they (group A) will be asked to retrieve the next group of dancers (group C) from the drum circle. Once those dancers enter the “Meditation Space”, those escorts (group A) will enter the drum circle and play music for the next group of dancers. etc…
You dance, then meditate, wait for the next group of people meditating to finish, then you escort the new group into the meditation space. Then you enter the drum circle and play for the rest of the groups circulating.
Dancing time and Meditation time will be roughly 15 minutes.
Please do not participate in any part of the activities if you feel it is uncomfortable or a risk to your health. During any part of this experience, you are not required to sit, lay down or dance beyond your capability. Your health is more important and we will accommodate the situation to help you feel more comfortable.
Each person will dance, meditate, drum and escort. Each movement through the process circulates the experience through a personal and community awareness.
The “Circulation” ceremony is created to bring you a unique and personal experience. There are no religious beliefs included in the ceremony. You bring your own intention. It is your personal space within a community that is there to support you.
8:00 pm Begin the “Circulation” ceremony.
