JUNE 21: 1,000 drums

A festival for “the unification of humanity” featuring the beat of 1,000 drums will take place, just like last year, in the esplanade facing the Instituto Cultural Cabañas on Saturday, June 21, 4 p.m.

The event is planned as a “massive meditation” through the sound of the drum, according to organizer Ana Teresa Sanchez Gonzalez of Casa Lahak, a Guadalajara-based new age outfit that offers a wide range of spiritual options, including temazcal sweat baths.

Those who do not register to participate with a drum can simply turn up to the event with a tambourine or similar instrument and/or a candle, she says.

Artists will use flower petals to create extravagant “paintings” on the plaza.

One of the aims of the happening, Sanchez says, is “to reconnect us with mother Earth.”

Those who wish to participate or want further information should call (33) 3613-1805 or visit www.casalahak.org.
