Krista Holland

New 12-Week Live Video Training Starts
Wednesday, April 5, 2023
 
 
 
 

Deepen your embodied frame drumming journey with Krista by expanding your upright playing skills and harnessing the rhythms of the past to ground and nurture your inner authenticity and the rhythms of the future to inspire and catalyze your true potential.

 

How can we stay in sync with our inner rhythms through the constant chaos, discordance, and uncertainty of the outside world?

Frame drummer Krista Holland says we can look to the rhythms of the past their mythos, mysticism, and sacred organizing principles to guide our steps and inspire a future cadence that nurtures our wellbeing and dreams.

As a graduate of Krista’s recent course, Embodied Drumming, you’re invited to embark on this new 12-week advanced course on upright frame drum playing where you’ll harness the wisdom of traditional, global, and trance rhythms to ground and maintain resonance with your true self... and your potential.

At a time when the collective rhythm of humanity continues to be grossly out-of-step with our individually held shared goals of peace, fulfillment, and prosperity...

... learning how to maintain your inner rhythm the most sacred and expansive version of who you are is crucial to your ability to co-create the kind of world you want to live in.

Attuning to your inner rhythm is therefore key to helping all of humanitytune in to the highest version of ourselves.

During your previous course with Krista, you explored how the restorative power of sacred drumming is amplified when combined with specific rhythms, posture alignments, breathwork, and movements...

... eliciting creative flow and creating a matrix of sound healing that can deepen your intuition, enhance creativity, and open new dimensions of consciousness.

You’ll deepen and expand your embodied drumming skills during this course while also learning new drumming techniques that will keep you in step with yourself... instilling a sense of wellbeing, inner belonging, and greater connection to all of life.

You’ll learn the rhythms that open neural pathways to higher consciousness and your full potential and how to meaningfully bring your inherent gifts and talents into our world by embodying your own inner rhythm in a loving and accepting way.

 
 
 

During this course on embodied drumming, you’ll:

  • Go deeper into the cultural roots, mythos, and mysticism of frame drumming from ancient origins to traditional and modern interpretations
  • Explore how inner and outer rhythms work together to create your unique cadence
  • Learn new techniques such as snapping for upright frame drumming; drumming grooves in odd- and even-time signatures; world trance rhythms; finger rolls in the upright position; world drumming; and improvisational drumming
  • Embody and unleash your own style of rhythm and ritual and synchronize your vocals, rhythms, and movements with special guest instructors and drumming lineage bearers Miranda Rondeau and Barbara Gail
  • Discover the physiological effects of trance rhythms and how they correlate with your flow state, greater life satisfaction, and happiness
  • Explore how drumming with intention and resonance can create a container for healing and transformation
  • Learn how to make the “whale sound” in the upright playing position to elicit a deeper flow state
  • Approach your drum as an ally and guide... a reminder of life’s rhythmic cycles that hold nature and the cosmos in balance
  • Deepen your understanding of the flow state and how to help elicit flow in your drumming practice to calm the mind and transform emotions
  • Discover your “map of meaning” to gain deeper access to your inner rhythm and help you sustain your enthusiasm for drumming
  • Gain invaluable mindset techniques to help you release self-consciousness and self-doubt so you can freely express your creative drumming potential
 
 

Krista teaches that our lives are organized by rhythm... from the rhythms of the cosmos and Earth... to those inherent in our biology.

As one of the oldest-known instruments of humanity, the frame drum is an ancient wisdom-bearer in and of itself a rhythmic bridge between the etheric and physical worlds...

... that can help bring us back into a coherent, harmonic, and grounded state individually and collectively.

As we align more strongly with our inner rhythms and learn how to maintain this resonance throughout the many twists and turns of daily living...

... our dreams and desires naturally fall into alignment, increasing our ability to maintain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual equilibrium from the inside out.

As the founder of the Sacred Drumming Academy, Krista has devoted more than 25 years of research and practice to the frame drum resulting in a deep synthesis of modern science, ritual, myth, and ancient feminine drum history.

By continuing your embodied drumming journey, you’ll harness the mythos, mysticism, and grounded wisdom of the rhythms of the past...

... while gaining new drumming techniques that will help you maintain resonance with your inner rhythm and receive deeper access to your higher consciousness and true potential.

This marks the beginning of a new journey through the inner and outer terrains that inform who you are and offers a deeper experience of how inner and outer rhythms work together to create your unique cadence.

The mythos of the sacred drum is a subject that spans eras and cultures... pulsing in the soul of Indigenous and modern peoples worldwide.

Module 3: Ground Your Beats to Create a Solid Foundation for Your Dreams With Traditional Rhythm Play (April 19)

 

The traditional world rhythms of the frame drum are vast and varied and have been shared, traded, and adapted for centuries.

You’ll learn traditional world rhythms from the Mediterranean and the Middle East in a beat of eight that can serve as the foundation and basis for a lifetime of adventurous practice.

These rhythms will help lay down a path for future singing with the frame drum and other directions you may take with your drumming practice.

This introduction to traditional rhythms in the upright playing position will include variations for the players that like to take their drumming at a slow and easeful tempo and pace...

... as well as for those that crave surprising new vistas of learning and feel passionate about quickening their understanding and technical capacities.

Miranda will share her accessible and beautiful teachings on weaving together drumming, stepping, and singing for the group this week.

Module 5: Access Greater Flow, Satisfaction & Happiness With Trance Rhythms (May 3)

 

Drumming has often been recognized for its ability to produce trance states in drummers and listeners... but not all drumming creates a trance effect.

Specific patterns, tempos, and other parameters are more readily associated with trance or trance-like effects.

Studies of shamanic trance involving neuroimaging showed brain states that mirror those in dreaming, insight, meditation, and hypnosis.

In modern practice, a focused drumming session can lead to the flow state, or a sense of “being in the zone,” where we can experience mental absorption and effortless concentration.

You’ll explore how trance rhythms correlate with your flow state... and greater life satisfaction and happiness.

We may not be able to predict or force an outcome to experience a state of flow or trance... but as Krista will share, we can learn to set up an optimal practice environment and route for the grace of the flow state to happen upon us.

This week, you’ll:

  • Discover how trance rhythms correlate with your flow state and greater life satisfaction and happiness

You’ll explore why... and how this feeling illuminates an inner map that can guide us on a path of rediscovering our true origins and selves.

When we drum, we play an instrument utilized for thousands of years in celebrations, sacred rites, rituals, ecstatic ceremonies, and more.

Krista teaches that these experiences are on our inner map as part of our shared collective experience and serve as guideposts to our individual destinies.

As such, you’ll experience why drumming is a never-ending pathway of exploration for those who stay the course.

This week, you’ll:

  • Recapture a felt sense of meaning and belonging of your true origin and self
  • Discover your “map of meaning” to gain deeper access to your inner rhythm and help you sustain your enthusiasm for drumming
  • Explore why mapping out your drumming practice can lead to greater integration
  • Learn world drumming rhythms in the meter of six

Module 7: Find Inner Balance & Agency by Approaching Your Drum as a Sacred Guide & Ally (May 17)

 

The frame drum’s portability and sacred pancultural history make it a wonderful ally on our inward and outward travels.

Explore how sacred practice can be lighthearted, reaffirming, challenging, and confounding... because it is, after all, a reflection of the sacredness of life in all its complexity and beauty.

You’ll approach your drum as an ally and guide a reminder of your relationship to life’s rhythmic cycles that hold nature and the cosmos in balance.

Krista will share how even when something holds significance, we can approach it with non-dogmatic play, a sense of humor, and freshness within the reverence we may feel...

Barbara will share beautiful and evocative images of the ancient world’s frame drummers... and stories about the history and “herstory” of frame drumming. 

She’ll also lead the group in a dynam

frame drumming.

She’ll also lead the group in a dynamic drumming practice playing her Layne Redmond signature series tambourine to showcase how much of what you have learned so far applies to, and can be combined with, different styles of frame drumming.

This week, you’ll:

Module 9: Merge With the Harmonics of the Resonant Field to Create a Container for Healing & Transformation (May 31)

This resonant field, described scientifically, is the harmonious interaction of sound waves within a physical environment.

The stream of wellbeing refers to the embodied experience of being in your flow state the state where your inner alignment is so strong that everything within you and your life just seems to flow with little to no effort.

Being in the flow is considered beneficial for physical and mental health, as it can help release tension, calm the mind, direct focus, and simultaneously, expand awareness.

The felt sense of flowing with life also releases natural painkillers in the form of endorphins the calming effect on the mind through the repetition of simple rhythms...

... and the emotional release that can come from freeing heavy emotions and feeling into a space where transformation can naturally occur.
