Live Drumming & Music with Pline Mounzeo and Ken Wilson
Ngo – strength of the panther
Ma – given
Ngoma – a drum or a spiritual ceremony found in central and southern Africa to help people work with difficult issues, a healing ritual as in “doing ngoma”
Join Pline Mounzeo and Ken Wilson by dancing together and supporting each other. Pline is a world class drummer from Brazzaville, Congo; Ken has played and loved these rhythms for around 40 years. Engage the integrative mode of consciousness, let go of years of stress. They provide the music; you provide the dance; the whole universe creates the experience.
This tradition is part of a once universal practice of rhythm and dance done to integrate the self, to integrate the group and to heal. Not only can we be pretty sure people did this for a reason, but Ken, Pline and others have done clinical studies showing the helpfulness of “doing ngoma” in our own culture (see for example https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5655458/).
Pline’s home, the Congo River Basin around Kinshasa and Brazzaville, is the musical epicenter for the great Ngoma healing tradition of the Bantu peoples of central and southern Africa. The traditions of the extraordinary Congo rain forest, its people, its possession mediums and its healing drums should have been a part of our national heritage but were suppressed here long ago. Now you can connect with one of the world’s treasures.
Sunday Nov 10, 6:30-8:30pm

Understanding Stones Offering
The earth has gifted us with many wonders and beauty. One of these wonders are stones. Having survived millions of years they carry the knowledge of many: all our relations, the plants, water, trees, animals, and humans; to name a few. This offering is for sharing ways to use some of the energies that stones contain.
Learn how to retrieve and connect with a personal stone. It is great to have a tool or representation of the great energy we have within us. Carrying a personal stone works well. Learn how to be connected with its power in times of joy and in moments when a boost in your energy field is needed. These are only a couple of ways that stones can be used.
I learned this offering from spiritual healers around the world. If you have stones already, please bring and use them. If not, I will have stones available. This offering is open for all ages to enjoy and learn.

Never Dead Poets Society
John Keats (1795 – 1821), a poet, from the English Romantic Era was a main figure of the second generation of Romantic poets. He famously stated, “The poetry of the earth is never dead”.
My name is Rose Fields, I’m 27 years old and from the small town of Pikeville, here in NC. I lacked stability in my childhood and supplemented with reading and writing. Falling in love with poetry at a young age, I turned to it to connect and express. In return poetry allowed me to channel my feelings and redirect them in a healthy way. Poetry is a peaceful outlet for self-expression, in addition to, the processing of emotions. I often say, to write a poem is to have a conversation with one’s intrinsic, otherwise-neglected self. I wanted to create a safe place for young people to connect with one another and process through the more convoluted aspects of life. Thus, the Never Dead Poets Society was born! Whether you are a writer, a listener, or a reader, you are welcome to come join this group!
A typical meeting consists of reading, writing, and creating a prompt for the future meeting. This keeps all involved writing and processing through a collection of topics decided on and discussed throughout each meeting. Our group is not full of writers by trade, though we do have a few accomplished writers in the group. I, myself am a science major…if that helps you to feel more comfortable with your background. Everyone has the ability to write poetry! Although this group is centered on the collaborative experiences of young adults, anyone can come and participate! Please feel free to contact me with the email provided below with any further questions. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Riding the Waves of Grief through the Holidays with Michelle Sauber
