Nippur Retreat is proud to announce the addition of Papillon Âû DeBoer as drum facilitator and workshop host to the Ostara Family Gathering 2022!! Papillon (they/them) has been drumming with metal bands since 1991 and at pagan fire circles since 1997. They are also a trauma therapist, teacher, mystic, musician, poet, Ifa priest, parent, partner, friend, and autistic nerd.
Drumming & Trance
This workshop is recommended for anyone planning to play a rhythm instrument at the Ostara fire circle. All skill levels welcomed and integrated. This won’t be the same boring drumming workshop you may have attended at other festivals – we will not be learning Fanga or any other traditional rhythm.
Instead we will be collaborating, listening, and supporting each other with important skills for creating TRANCE. This is why we do this, right? We will find common purpose and intent, and weave together in preparation to welcome Spring.
Please bring yourself, your willingness, a rhythm instrument (I’ll have a few extra bells and shakers), and something comfortable to sit on. Dancers and singers also welcome!
Preregistration is required. Ensure your entry today!
