Holiday Events Reminder

Greetings again and happy holidays! This is just a quick reminder of upcoming events.

I've rescheduled my trance drumming to take place on Saturday, instead of Friday, in Missoula. That's so you can also attend the Musical Dreamtime Journey with Michael Marsolek and Lawrence duncan on Friday night. They'll be playing in Greatfalls and Bozeman too!

Also, my Relaxation Techniques CD is still on sale through the Holidays for only $13!

Warm regards,




Solstice Trance Drumming and Intuitive Self-exploration - Missoula

Saturday, December 22nd - 6:30 until 9:30 PM.  - Cost - $35

Join Patrick Marsolek for a workshop using the sounds of the drum and the rattle and other conscious mechanisms for exploring and experiencing trance. Through trance we gain access to deeper parts of ourselves and of our collective group energy for insight, clarity of purpose, healing, and even personal transformation.

Within the group space, individuals will be able to go deeper into their own experience of  trance and explore their own personal intentions. We will also explore the manifestation of group intention and spirit guidance. Within the container of a group trance, personal experiences can take on larger, more profound meanings that are relevant to more than one person or even to the whole group.
