I trust you are having an awesome day!
This is the second in a series of videos on the 5 Elements. This series focuses on the power of the drum and the rhythms that represent each of the elements.
Mineral is about communication and stories. The Dagara people who created this cosmology do not have a written language so the elders associated with the element of Mineral are the ones who were responsible for holding the stories of the tribe to keep the tradition alive.
We all have stories too. Some helpful and some not so much. John Mayer has a great song titled “Who Says” One of the verses is as follows:
Who says I can’t be free
from all of the things I used to be
rewrite my history
who says I can’t be free
This song inspired me to re-examine what I believe about who I am. There is a story in this video about a belief I carried for most of my life that actually might not be true…
Listen to the drum and take in the sound to change some of the stories in your life.
