The Earth Walk Performance Series kicks off tonight, at 6 p.m., at Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St. $12 to $22.
Storyteller, drummer and healing arts practitioner Brian Rohr will talk, drum and tell stories from the oral traditions of the world in his performance, "Stoking the Fire, Stringing the Harp."
"It is our time to heal our relationship with the sacred and the living world," says Rohr. "We need to dance with our fire and our shadows, for in this way we reveal our gold ... and the world is hungry for us to be living our gold. By doing this through story and in community, we find what is common and unique of our human condition. And in this way, we become more than just audience, we become participants in this ancient act, feeding our soul with the nourishment gifted by our ancestors."
Blown Seals, an up-and-coming local acoustic duo will perform, and leaders of Earthwalk will discuss the Soul Walk component of Earthwalk, which takes place in April.
