UR Drumming is facilitated by Jonna Rae Bartges, spiritual counselor, minister, and founder of PSI -- The Practical Spirituality Institute, and Nicholas the Bard Andrea.  Jonna Rae was on the Opening Team of the UR Light Center Dome back in 1979, and served as the resident psychic.  Nicholas has traveled the world sharing his musical gifts, and is the director of music at the Waldorf School in Asheville.

Come early, and you'll get to experience a deep, healing meditation in the Light Room on the ground floor of the Dome.

2019 Drum Circle Dates

  • April 27
  • May 25
  • June 22
  • July 27
  • August 24
  • September 28

Bring a lawn chair, your Sacred Sound instrument and a smile to the Full Moon Sound Circle at the UR Labyrinth!  The 4th Saturday of each month, from April through September, we'll gather to share traditional Lakota songs, generate creative beats, and send love, light and healing to the planet.

If you're a drum circle veteran, fantastic!  You will have an opportunity to set the beat and lead us in a song.

Never been to one?  That's fantastic too.  We'll loan you an instrument for the evening, and you'll soon get into the rhythm of things.

It's all about connecting, having fun, and sharing a heart-centered evening with like-minded people.
