A community in Italy called Damanhur is doing in-depth research with plants and trees by monitoring vibratory resonance of the plant whose electrical impulses are registered through an electronic device that is connected to a synthesizer.

I was always in awe of those who could play djembes- with such beauty and power, and at various times I theorized about getting one but lacked the motivation to actually go through with it. Plus I knew if I had one, I wanted to make it myself, making the task that much more daunting. I knew eternalinnersmile and morganalafay shared this desire- we had causually mentioned it from time to time but without any real plans…
Then, at the new england’s women’s herbal conference, Mz. Amani and the heartbeats were beyond words- so captivating, majestic, and primal. They were the spark that ignited our lingering desires into what was now a fiery need- a need to satisify our primal right to build, grown and heal through drumming- NOW.
