Solstice Drumming with Dyane Sherwood

  • The First Unitarian Church of Cleveland 21600 Shaker Boulevard Shaker Heights, OH, 44122 United States (map)

Celebrate the Winter Solstice with Drumming Experience

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

We received such positive feedback about Dyane's drumming program, we will be offering it again. Ritual and connection to the natural world are central to nurturing imagination and the numinous.

Join us for this gentle opening to what the unconscious offers each of us at this liminal time. After a brief introduction and an optional sage smudging outside, we will pass a talking stick for a check in. People will then make themselves comfortable and open to inner experience, while Dyane drums for 20- 30 minutes. We will segue into a group drumming and rattling. We will again pass the talking stick for optional sharing of the experience.

About Dyane Sherwood, PhD


Dyane Sherwood is a Licensed Psychologist and Jungian Analyst, Certified in both Adult and in Child and Adolescent Analysis, and a Certified Sandplay Therapist. She has taught in depth about Active Imagination to therapists in analytic training, in continuing education workshops, and internationally. Her interest in shamanism came to her through a dream and active imagination, and she later studied shamanism with the late analyst Donald Sandner (Navajo Symbols of Healing, The Sacred Heritage) in the 1990’s. This led to years of traditional Lakota “medicine” training under the guidance of Lakota elder Pansy Hawkwing (Pine Ridge, SD).
