...working with drums at Earth energy vortices
Drumming at Sacred sites is of course very common but one rarely hears of drumming at Earth energy vortices, so it will be great to hear of your experiences (or those of others), Will.
I am planning a drumming event at an Earth energy vortex in the UK this summer - a sacred site going back to Iron Age times or possibly earlier. It is an underground chamber which was adapted and used for a century or so by the Knights Templar in the Middle Ages. The walls are adorned by mysterious carvings with Templar symbolism but which no-one has ever been able to adequately explain. This subterranium chamber is at one of the exact locations where England's main Ley lines - The Michael and Mary lines - intersect.

My interest in this flows from a very powerful healing experience I had some years ago while dowsing a location where the Mary Line is crossed by a subsidiary line and thereby gives rise to a vertical energy vortex. As I stood on this point with my dowsing rod I had the experience of being energetically "zapped" [the intense vertical energy flow seemed to hit a block in my energy field] creating a sudden state of mental "fog" such that I had little idea of who I was or where I was. Luckily an energy-healer friend was with me and quickly guided me to a nearby peaceful spot while pressing the stress-support point in the web of my thumb. I felt a very, very deep pain of emotional/spiritual/physical anguish flowing through me - far too deep and intensely painful for me to reach or release in normal circumstances. The pain was related to a severely traumatic life-event I had suffered 10 years previously. I thought that I had grieved and released this event, but now realised there had been a residual pain so deep and agonising that in normal circumstances I would not have been able to even contemplate it - let alone bear it. As my agonising soul-pain was released down into the earth, a sense of clarity and peace [purification] spread through me.
