Journey Drumming Track

For those in my ancestors’ groups or for anyone else for whom it is helpful to have a steady drumming track for journeying, here is 8-9 min track to help support your process. I have found that you get the best sense of the reverberation of the drum if you use headphones when listening:

Let Us Find Ground

As I have been playing with ways to touch back into ground amidst the waves of emotion that ebb and flow around and throughout this pandemic experience, I often find that sound and rhythm are super helpful tools for me in this. This simple song came through for me earlier this week (I’m writing this on 3/20/20) and I thought I would share it here in the event that others may find it helpful as a bit of an anchor as well.

A fairly rough GarageBand recording of it can be found here (with a cameo audio appearance by my elder cat, Inky):

And here are the lyrics:

Let Us Find Ground

by Heather L. Davies

Let us find ground

Wherever we roam.

Let us find ground 

Whether tucked in our beds or so far from home.

Let us find ground

Come near or come far.

Let us find ground

In ourselves and with each other wherever we are.

Let us find ground

Where we sit, lay or stand

Let us find ground

With the beings and wisdom that dwell in the land.

Let us find ground

Sinking deep with our roots

Let us find ground

As we slow and we feel into our deeper truths.
