“The drum is called the heartbeat of the
nation. Every culture has drums.
Today I will tell you the story of one camp we hosted for
the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Everyone
registered for the camp independently and no one knew each
other. Everyone arrived and spent the first afternoon
getting settled in. Each person finding their home and their
family for the weekend.
Come evening we had a sharing circle, with prayers and
introductions. As one person after another spoke, they all
shared a story about their particular drum. Everyone was
from a different background, different nation and had
different drum stories, but each person had a drum. Every
evening we would go to sleep to the sound of drumming.
That was one of the most memorable camps we had. It was so
spiritual. On the last day in the closing circle one
participant told us he was a Buddhist monk. He had decided
not to share that as he wanted to participate as the person
he was. We all came together as one people, one fire.
We were all blessed.
