    Stay Connected While We're Apart


    During this time when we can't be physically together, it's so important to connect with other people, and with ourselves. This is a time like no other when we can be intentional about connecting with friends and family. This is a time like no other when we can take time to go within and be present with ourselves, be present in the moment, and connect with the Love within and remember who we truly are. With this in mind, we have put together programs on ZOOM and on Facebook Live to help us all stay CONNECTED. Check out our Upcoming Events further down this page and hit the button below to see videos of our previous events recorded on Facebook Live.

Upcoming Events

We offer a wide variety of spiritual and secular classes, programs, workshops, and retreats to help you reawaken the Divine Love within.

  • See Videos of Our Virtual Drum Journey on our Facebook page

    The continuous rhythm of the drum allows you to enter a voluntary, ecstatic trance and experience infinite possibilities of emotional release and spiritual healing.
    Drumming is an ancient practice, a universal language where people come together to share, connect, heal, learn and celebrate. This drum journey is a safe, relaxing and grounding passive experience. The sound vibration disengages the brain's awareness of outside activities, actually synchronizes the left and right hemispheres and creates a vortex of energy that can open your heart and lift you to a higher plane, taking you deep into the Universe where you lose yourself and connect with the Divine. This state opens a space within you for infinite possibilities of spiritual, emotional and physical healing.
    Join this meditative experience on Facebook Live. We suggest you simply relax in a comfortable position and let our drumming wash over you.
    John and Heidi Kowalchyk live in upstate New York, are Reiki Masters, Certified Sound Therapists, ordained ministers with the Alliance of Divine Love and trained drum circle facilitators, leading drum circles for all ages over the past 5 years throughout the country.

  • On Hold Til FallSpirit Quest Drum Circle
    See videos of previous Spirit Quest Drum Circle on our face book page

    Spirit Quest Drumming generates sound vibration, creating a vortex of energy that can open your heart and lift you to a higher plane. You’ll begin your vibrational journey with a meditation then gently move into beating rhythms that will quickly bring you deeper into meditation; deeper into the Universe as you lose your self and connect with the Divine. Spirit Quest Drumming opens a space for the manifestation of spiritual, emotional and physical healing. At the close our drum circle you will receive an individual drum bath that will offer deeper relaxation and grounding. All are welcome, no experience necessary, and everyone can enjoy this program. Basic instructions will be provided for new comers. Bring your own drum or anything you want to use as a drum and join in. Or just sit, relax and enjoy the journey.
