2 Workshops with Jhenah Telyndru

Sunday, April 21st

Fire In the Head: Igniting the Spark of Awen 3:30-5:30pm

This workshop will present several tools which will allow you to directly tap into the Source of Awen, as well as open the energetic channels of your own creativity.

Every one exists as a vibration of the Great Divine Creatrix, and the creative energies of Awen is the Celtic resonance of this concept. This firey Source of Creation – from the inception of the Universe, to the conception of a child, to the reception of an inspired verse of poetry – is literally the birth right of all, and reclaiming the pathway to Awen is yet one more way to empower women to embrace our wholeness. Awen, or Divine Inspiration, was much sought after by the Druids and Bards of the Ancient Celts. In reclaiming the paths to Awen, we look to ancient tools and inspiried modern techniques to restimulate these energies in our lives.

Trancing the Inner Landscape: Ecstatic Body Postures 1-3pm

The Island of Avalon, the Holy Isle of Healing, is an embodiment of the Goddess in the landscape; indeed, the outline of the island itself resembles a woman in repose across the British countryside. A place of pilgrimage since time immemorial, the unique transformational energies of the Glastonbury landscape have always been considered sacred.

Believed by some to be the heart chakra of the planet, the place where ancient Avalon once dwelt still attracts spiritual seekers from all over the world.

Inspired by the Ecstatic Trance Posture work of Anthropologist Felicitas Goodman, Avalonian Landscape Postures are a meditative journeying discipline that permits the seeker to connect with and explore the alchemical geomantic energies of the Island of Avalon by adapting meditative poses which approximate the forms of Glastonbury’s unusual landscape features — features which include mineral-rich springs, a spiraled hill, and a mist enshrouded lake. In assuming these postures, we are able to experience facets of the Avalonian landscape even as we awaken their transformational energies in our own lives. As we explore the Holy Island, we come to a deeper understanding of our own sacred nature. As we connect with Center, we are drawn ever nearer in relationship with Source.

Together, we will explore the symbolic significance of major sites in the Glastonbury landscape, discuss their mythic and historic context, and highlight their relevance to the spiritual pilgrim of today. Accompanied by Shamanic drumming, we will have an opportunity to experience a trance posture journey to the Holy Isle in a safe, sacred, and supported environment.

What happens in class

Wayne Manthey, Master drum maker, has taught hundreds of people how to make their own drum. You will start with a pre-constructed cedar frame, deer hides, and a bucket of walnut stain. (Yes, you should dress for messy work or bring a smock to wear).

First, choose your frame, lay out the hides and take a few moments to connect to each piece and to envision them coming together to create one entity.

After cutting out the drum circles, master drum maker Wayne Manthey will take you, one step at a time, through the rest of the process. Perhaps we should say making your drum is a journey because, through story and shared experience, you will come to understand this instrument which is core to so many cultures and healing traditions.

The drum is the circle, it is the cycle of life. It is the earth and moon and all of these things to those who use the drum for trance or spiritual work. When you make your drum, you will honor the four directions and the center heart of the earth. There are no words that can completely describe what it feels like to make your own drum, except maybe magic.

Wayne Manthey on Drum Making

As I started making drums, I was especially interested in the vibration of rawhide and the sound it makes.  Once I was able to consistently achieve the quality sound and felling I was looking for, assign antlers, wood, stone, and lacing variations made the drums more decorative and visually pleasing.

The healing properties of a drum are found in the elements that make it:  wood and animal hide.

Making personal frame drums is a journey that is individually and spiritually meaningful.  Teaching drum making classes involves storytelling and introspection.  The drum symbolizes the heartbeat of life, the heartbeat of community.  It is not simply an art form, but a tool for cleansing, centering and focusing one’s intentions for health and happiness.

Drums teach responsibility.  Making them is an honor, a meditation, and continue to reveal lessons for me as well.

Don’t miss a beat

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature. ~Joseph Campbell
