Intentional Community + Dark Sky + Drumming Activations
Tapping Into the Primordial Heartbeat of Humanity

It's time to light up the dark with our passion! We are a potent and growing body of Aligned Community, and we gather under a dark night sky deliberately, to connect authentically with each other and the land. On this autumn equinox, we’ll honour summer’s bounty with Fire & Percussion.

In keeping with the intentions of R.O.A.R, with R.O.A.R. NOIR our focus remains to bring sound and community together in the dynamic energy field of the Shubenacadie River. As the name suggests, R.O.A.R NOIR will be held under a dark night sky, around a blazing bonfire. We’ll gather with drums in hand to step into the flow of the land and the primordial heartbeat of humanity. In the spirit of harvest celebration, expect an evening of improvisational, joyous, unifying connection. Vive la célébration!


Come and tap into the Being within; re-experience the magic, potency and potential of a dark sky. Find your Self and your community. We're looking for you.  XO


Because we need to work with the elements, R.NOIR's will have a pop-up style format wherein announcements could be made with a week's notice or just a couple of days. The Activation Sessions newsletter and Facebook business pg and group will be the main way that we convey these announcements, especially helpful for those last minute gatherings.  These experiences are offered to the Activation Sessions community as our way of expressing our love and gratitude for your continued participation, support and belief in this mission. Be sure to join us on Facebook or sign up for the newsletter, if you fancy participating.

The evening starts at 7 p.m. and ends under a dark sky, at 10 p.m. The time between is for fire, drumming and connection. The drums start at 8 and roll for one full hour, straight. We feel free to move in and out of the flow, like breathing, as we feel the heartbeat through our bodies and allow that energy to move and activate the 'New' in us. 


R.O.A.R NOIR is a genuine celebration of nature and community and an ignition of the fire within us all! We are SO excited to see you out!




We are outdoors and on semi-groomed, uneven trails and landscape so please come with:

- Rain gear (if needed) 

- Bug spray (if needed)

IMPORTANT! This only works if you participate, so be sure to bring your drum, shaker, rattle, tambourine, bongo, chacka's, etc. Something to shake out your 'wild thing'! If you can and you don't mind sharing, please bring along any extra instruments for those who may not have. xo


** NOIR is not a 'dry' event so feel free to come with your preferred beverage. Please just drink responsibly, you've got a dark drive home and you're responsible for getting there safely.


There are no rain dates and we'll only cancel a scheduled event if the weather changes, the ground is too wet and unstable or unforeseen circumstances occur. Another reason to join the FB group!
