We meet monthly outdoors in either Riverside Park or the North Woods of Central Park and create earth altars or mandalas to honor the land and trees of New York City Park.   


The River Sisters
Healing &Drum Circle


in Central or Riverside Park, New York City

In the context of shamanic ceremony, we gather in spiritual community to pray for ourselves, our community and the world at large.  We call in sacred space, honor the elements, ancestor spirits, and  4 directions.  Each session has a theme that could be inspired by the seasons or global events.

Together, we create an earth altar with natural offerings.  Everyone is asked to contribute:  Flowers, tobacco, sage, acorns, pine cones, corn meal, wild bird seed, medicinal plants, etc. are appreciated.  You are welcome to share a poem or song, or bring a snack for afterwards.  The power of this ceremony lies in what each participant brings.  Bring a rattle/drum and a chair, blanket or mat to sit on.
