Shaman Watch


The New York Observer notes that ‘urban shaman’ Donna Henes will be hosting a ‘drumming circle’ in honor of the full moon tonight. Ms. Henes is quoted in the paper as explaining that, “the ceremony is about drumming up energy and our spirit for inner healing. We’ll drum and, of course, there will be howling at the moon. It’s a very charging experience. People fly out of the door when it’s over.”

Hmmm, well, I saw the moon over Manhattan myself the other night, a great white globe suspended, it seemed, between skyscrapers. It was nice, but, no, I didn’t want to howl.
