The vision

The vision is to bind people together across borders, distance, race and religion in a common struggle for Mother Earth. As the drum travels from people to people, from land to land and from hand to hand its heartbeat will get stronger each day. It is a wake up call for us to reinstate our spiritual relationship to Mother Earth. As we move further and further away from nature, we have lost this relation and look at nature as something we must fight, exploit and destroy. It is important for us to understand that without Mother Earth and all that lives on her, there is no humankind. We are dependent on her.

It has come to our attention both the tragic destiny and the important message from our realtives the Kogi indians. Under is a mail from one of our participants and also urls for the Tairona Trust, please support them if you can.

Kind regards

I have posted some links on the forum of the BDO about a group of
people that might welcome a visit from the World Drum. They are the
Kogi Indians of Columbia. They are a shamanic people who remained
seperate from the rest of the world, until the Earth gave them a
message that there were people in the world they should warn about the
damage they were doing to the planet. They invited film makers in to
see their life and spirituality, and published a book about it. They
showed how happy the people were to be extending their lands, and
farming them in an ecologically responsible way. They were giving up
their dependance on hallucinagenics, and had achieved status as a world
preservation area.

They sent out their message, part of which described rich westerners as
naughty younger brothers who have not been slapped down yet for
behaving irresponsibly towards the Earth. President Bush took
exception to this, and claimed the Kogi use of hallucinagenics as his
excuse for what he did next, despite the fact they had made a
commitment to clearing thier lands of the plants as part of their world
preservation site status.

President Bush sent in a plane, which dusted the area with a poisonous
cocktail that wrecked the ecology of the Kogi people's new lands.
Children are now being born with health problems. All because they had
to pass on the message about the health of the earth.

They now need media attention to make their plight known to the rest of
the world, and to help raise funds to provide help for those whose
lives have been ruined.

I feel that knowing other peoples have heard the same message, and
knowing they are not alone, would be of great help to these people.

To host The Worlddrum may be a big step for someone, and I have been asked to find other ways to participate and contribute to the project. TWDP are constantly searching for new participants and you can help the project by sending info to your friends about it, you can hand out the flyers you find on the page or even make your own. Also if you have friends or contacts in media, dont hesitate to tell them about the project(Small or big). One of the most important things in the project is to spread the message that we need to reinstate our relationship with Mother Earth. And it does work spreading info about TWDP. We see now that some of the message The Worlddrum brings is being used (almost wordright) by politicians and others in their speaches, we do have an impact. This is thanks to all the participants and the thousands of people that has heard the message, heard the heartbeat of this humble drum.

Blessings and Walk in Beauty

Heres a mail from Billy Bonnevie updating the program for Phillipines.
I’m writing this letter to update you with what’s happening and gonna happen. I’m going up to Baguio on the way to Sagada, Mountain Province (3days journey) tomorrow to coordinate the World Drum Project, Sagada is a zone of peace and a symbol for the conservation of cultural heritage. It will be the place of the event on April 05, 2009. We will be meeting with the Council of the Elders as to incorporate the ceremony with indigenous elements like solibao drums, gangsa gongs, traditional chanting and dancing. An Earth altar with the five elements (5 colors) prayer flags (windhorse) would be installed in poles.

We integrated the World Drum Project on April 18 with the Earthday Network in celebration of Earthday 2009. The event would be at the La Mesa Watershed Ecopark. It would be a sunrise to sunset inter faith ceremonial performances from the different religious sects, the World Drum interweaving the whole dynamic. Then comes the Earthday itself, April 22 where in a big concert would be mounted in the Metropolitan Capital of the Philippines.

As of now I’m happy to share this planned program and hope comes smoothly like the summer wind. Please advice of any updates about the coming of the World Drum on March 20-25. Where is it coming from and where would I send it after here? Is this information already available? Hoping for your response.

Thank you so much. Walk in beauty.

Human beings had thought that only they were conscious,that only they held fears and mistook self-importance for self-awareenss.

The Worlddrum has now traveled the world for 2 years. The humble message of the drum is to once again listen to the voice of Mother Earth, and more than 20000 people has been influenced by the drum. Even US Fish and Wildlife office and the Canadian Parlament has been touched by the drums message. As famous native flute-player John Two-Hawks says " And yet, here comes this humble skin drum from Norway, drawing people from all cultures around the world together in unity and connection. And I see that this humble drum is mitakuye oyasin in action. It is a vehicle by which we can see that, yes indeed, we really are all relatives. " Even though it is a sacred
drum, it has been, and will keep on being, played by of all kind of people from different cultures and religions, old people, young people, children, the homeless, the sick...all kind of people, all together in the spirit of this common cause. Allthough being the receiver of the vision, I claim no ownership to the drum. The drum is owned by everyone who participates in the project. The project does not receive any sponsoring from government or companies. The costs of sending the drum is paid by the participant, All other costs to run the project is paid by the founders.
