Drum Making and Ceremony

General Events The beat of the drum brings an awareness of the sacred and powerful beat of all of creation. Creating this sacred instrument of peace will help you to hear and feel the rhythms that connect the earth, its diverse peoples and all creatures. Drum maker and storyteller Wayne Manthey has helped bring many drums to life at the FSC since his first workshop here in 2007. Participants use wood, deer hides, walnut stain and other natural elements to create a unique, personal drum. In between, there is time for reflection and storytelling about the ancient, spiritual tradition of drumming. Finally, we will participate in a drumming circle and learn about ceremony.

Courage to be Enough Part II

General Events “I am enough. I have enough.” These statements are easy to say and hard to believe. Much of our pain comes from our unreasonable expectations of ourselves and unmet expectations of others. At this follow-up to last year’s The Courage to Be Enough (based on the work of Brené Brown), we will look at the internal voices that hold us back from accepting the life we have been given. Peace comes as we accept ourselves as we are – not as we wish we were. Love grows as we accept others as they are – not as we wish they were. Gratitude grows as we focus on what we have instead of what we lack. Saturday, November 1, 2014, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Franciscan Spirituality Center, 920 Market Street, La Crosse, WI 54601.
