Spirit Circle Drumming

Sunday, November 3, 3 – 4:30 p.m.

Karen-Tlusty-RissmanNurture your spirit through rhythm and meditation. Based on a blend of traditions, this Spirit Circle draws on our most ancient roots to creatively raise group energy. Each round will begin with a chant or Native American flute song. Rhythm instruments will gradually come in until the drumming reaches its natural conclusion. A few moments of silent meditation will follow as we take in the energy that was raised and send it out in blessings. This is a safe place to connect with your deepest wisdom, honor your inner guidance, and create more love and light for yourself and the universe. You are welcome to bring your own drums, rattles, or rhythm instruments. A limited number of shared instruments will be available. 

Karen Tlusty-Rissman is a musician, astrologer, artist, and celebrant of Spirit. She currently leads a variety of meditation classes in the western suburbs and has facilitated sacred circles for over 35 years. She weaves the common threads from many Earth-centered traditions as well as astrology, aromatherapy, and energy work to provide participants with a direct connection to their inner Source. Karen plays the Native American flute, concert flute, bass guitar, Tibetan singing bowls, and gong. Visit her at

Triple Gong Experience

Friday, December 13, 7:00 p.m.

Become immersed in the rich tonal vibrations of three harmonious gongs as you detach from the pressure and content of the mind. Evoking physical, emotional, and spiritual responses, the vibrations of the gongs work on multiple levels to stimulate, heal and transform. After a gentle, seated yogic warm-up and meditation to prepare the mind and body, relax and be embraced by sound.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a mat and/or blanket. In the communal spirit, we'll share a cup of homemade Yogi Tea afterward.

Jenny Bergold (Jagatjeet Kaur) received her Kundalini Yoga instructor and gong training through the Kundalini Research Institute and Spirit Rising Yoga. Maureen Milliken (Haripal Kaur) is a yoga instructor, sound practitioner, Reiki Master Teacher, and shamanic facilitator. Ela Geske received her Kundalini Yoga instructor and gong training through the 3HO Foundation (KRI). They are all honored to help you become more bountiful, blissful, and beautiful through Kundalini Yoga and this triple gong event.
