UR Light Center


Bring a lawn chair, your Sacred Sound instrument and a smile to the Drum Circle at the UR dome in Black Mountain, NC.  We start our circles at 6:30 p.m.  in the green space between the dome and the labyrinth.  The 4th Saturday of each month, from April through September, we’ll gather to share traditional Lakota songs, generate creative beats, and send love, light, healing and  gratitude to our beautiful Earth Mother.

If you’re a drum circle veteran, fantastic!  You will have an opportunity to set the beat and lead us in a song.  Never been to one?  That’s fantastic too.  We’ll loan you an instrument for the evening, and you’ll soon get into the rhythm of things.

It’s all about connecting, having fun, and sharing a heart-centered evening with like-minded people.

Come early, and you’ll get to experience a deep, healing meditation in the Light Chamber on the ground floor of the Dome.  

Suggested donation for Drum Circle: $10.

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
