Full Moon Drumming for Peace
Saturday, December 22 ~ 4:15-5:15 pm
Goshen Church of Christ Congregational
Drumming for Peace at sunset on the evening of the full moon
takes place at Church of Christ Congregational, 5 Old Middle Street,
at the intersection of Routes 4 and 63 in Goshen, CT.
Come and join us as we send the energy created
by our drumming out into the universe for world peace.
Bring your own drum/s or use one of the drums
or rhythm instruments that will be available.

Participants may bring their own drums or use the
 drums and rhythm instruments that will be provided.
Any type of hand drum may be used.
All drummers or people who would like to become
drummers are welcome; no experience is necessary.

Drumming for Peace is a program begun by Drums Around the World.
The concept is that drummers will drum for peace in their time zone for
about an hour sending the energy that is created out into the universe for
world peace and then other drummers will begin drumming in their time zone
and thus pass the drumming around the globe.
MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH
