8000 Sacred Drums Gathering again this Spring Equinox....

8,000 Sacred Drums Annual Global Ceremony

- Every Spring Equinox on March 21, 2009 - 12 noon Central Time
- 11 am Pacific (OUR TIME) for more info, see below...

"When 8000 sacred drums sound together,
an intense healing of Mother Earth will commence."
- 500 year-old Otomi Prophecy

more updates here...Again, the Otomi elders of Mexico will be holding annual ceremonies to gather as many sacred drummers together all around the globe to continue the fulfillment of their 500-year old prophecy with the powerful intention to open healing of our blessed earth mother - please join us by gathering together and/or drumming wherever you are at this time!

Let us join together with all indigenous nations around the world in calling for justice - for healing.

** According to a Sacred Prophecy revealed at the Otomi Ceremonial Center by Otomi Elder Sages, the day when the sounds of 8,000 Sacred Drums join together is the beginning of the healing of Mother Earth. It is time to unify ourselves to rediscover the seeds of the Four Directions - to reactivate cosmic energy, heal historical wounds. It's time to respect life, liberty and the dignity of Our Peoples.

The first great ceremony was held March 21, 2004 in Temoaya, Mexico. Drum circles joined around the world on the Spring Equinox. This will continue each year until 2012.

Sacred Principles:
- Seal and heal the wounded vertices of Mother Earth.
- Identify and activate the Indigenous energy centers at sacred places, this is our duty.
- Plant and strengthen consciousness of love and respect for our Mother Earth. This is everyone's work.
- The Indigenous ancestral recommendation to create and practice our cullture of Peace and Life is fundamental.
- Recognition of the use of the energy and healing are the properties of our sacred instruments

Organize in YOUR area! It doesn't take much.. just pick a spot to meet and invite people to bring their drums.. and after a prayer or a smudge:
1) Sing a prayer song, honor song for our people, our earth and environment, our children
2) or, if there's just a few of ya, each person can share a prayer and a song
3) or, on your own? Just say a prayer and then drum with a prayer in your heart
4) At pow wows, organizers can pick a time for all drums to come together. You can use sweetgrass, sage, juniper, tobacco, cedar, water, incense, light a candle..

it's your choice... Many of us will attend the smudge ceremony before heading over to set up for 8,000 Drums.

We'll join indigenous nations around the world in calling for justice - for healing- you can also do one for your area there too! It's open to everyone... every organization.. every band/tribe/first nation, school, native housing complex, friendship centre, street, house, park, community centre, pow wow...

Looking forward to drumming with you all again...
