Drumming has been an integral part of Indigenous cultures since time immemorial. In many traditions, Indigenous women used a hand drum to sing lullabies to their babies to help the baby connect with her and to their culture. The drumbeat also represents the heartbeat of Mother Earth. Energy travels through the vibrations of a drum, re-aligning with our bodies natural rhythms and we connect to our mother’s heart beat again - nourishing our body, mind and soul.
Our breasts represent much more than organs of sexuality, intimacy and femininity — they symbolize our primal need for motherly love, support, security, and nourishment. This is reflected in their primary function. They are an integral component of our self-image and connection to our sacred role as woman, lover and mother. This is a reflective personal encounter shared by Jessica Barudin.
