It’s that time of year again, for the 10 Billion Beats global drum circle. Seems like it wasn’t that long ago. For the info on our Grants Pass, Oregon event, go to our calendar.
10 Billion Beats is a Global Event that uses drumming to focus a collective positive intention, then send it around the world in a continuous wave to improve our relationship with each other, with the living planet upon which we live, and “all our relations” . 10 Billion Beats started in Sept. 2009 with nearly 200,000 people participating around the globe, including a group at our house in Phoenix, AZ. Each year this grassroots movement grows even bigger. The focus is not to have the world’s largest drum circle, but to help us, as human beings, stand with each other around the globe through the uncertain times ahead. Continue reading
Earth Day 2012 is almost here. While we feel everyday is Earth Day, I like to look at it as Mother Earth’s birthday. Hey, we all have a birthday. It’s a great reason to celebrate and have fun.
Last year’s Earth Day post gave you some ideas for things to do to connect with Mother Earth and her inhabitants. This year, we’re celebrating with “Seed Bombs”… consider them party favors from Mother Earth’s birthday party.
Seed bombing is a subset of the Guerrilla Gardening movement, which has been described as “Gardening public space with or without permission. Continue reading
Sorry I’m so late getting this out. Have had computer “gremlins”. I think they are all pretty well under control now. As long as they don’t multiply I may be okay.
We have always participated in this event as a drum circle, but this year will just be going it “a deux”. Join the energy and spend a hour drumming. For more information: http://www.10billionbeats.com/ and http://www.10billionbeats.spruz.com/events.htm to see if there is a group drumming in your area.
We hope to see you at that etheric drum circle! Continue reading

It’s funny how we need to pick a day to celebrate the earth… particularly when our ancestors celebrated and honored “The Mother” every moment. They literally “worshiped the ground they walked on”.
But let’s thank Senator Gaylord Nelson, for beginning the celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd back in 1970. The government set aside another day for us to honor our “Mother”. This was, according to Senator Nelson, a way to “put the environment into the political ‘limelight’ once and for all” (his words). Now, Earth Day, is celebrated in most countries of the world.
As we humans have “evolved”, we’ve completely lost our connection to the planet we live on and the world that we live in. We “think” we’re individuals or separate beings. Continue reading
Talk about coincidences (and yes, I know there really aren’t any)…On Friday, I was forwarded the video links and this announcement from Global Spirit and asked if I would post it. Then last night we happened to be in Grants Pass and had the honor of attending a screening of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers’ movie “For the Next 7 Generations” (more on this next blog). Flordemayo, who is one of the speakers in this event is one of the 13 Grandmothers. Continue reading
