What you'll learn in this spirituality class:

Boom-boom, boom-boom, boom-boom, boom-boom—the steady drumbeat of our mother’s heart soothing and anchoring us in her womb is the first musical sound that our ears perceive, keeping us grounded on our journey to birth.

Besides the human voice, or our hands and feet, our first musical instrument was most likely the drum, whether discovered by beating a stick on a hollow log or some other hollow surface. The beat of the drum naturally compels our bodies to want to move—almost involuntarily like breathing.

The shaman/spirit/medicine drum is used universally, and is prevalent among many original peoples as a living and conscious tool to bridge into expanded reality. It is used widely among Siberian shamans, where the word shaman was conceived. Here in North America, the drum has always been a sacred instrument in their communication with spirit. Even in Europe, there is much history that reaches far beyond the advent of Christianity that included drumming in sacred ceremony.

In this workshop, you will:
  • Journey to meet the Spirit of the Tree that gifted you the wood for your drum frame that will become the drum’s body.
  • Journey to meet the Spirit of the Four-legged who gifted the hide that will be the flesh of your drum.
  • Learn a unique spiral lacing technique as taught in the Saghic tradition [a re-dreamed Celtic tradition.]
  • Engage in sacred ceremony to breathe life into your using the four elements.
  • All these lead toward Create an intimate bond between you and the drum’s living nature
  • Learn to work with the drum as a conversational aid with your Guides and the Ancestors when you journey into the heart of your Spirit Drum.
  • Learn to care for and "feed" your drum—this drum will be different than any other drum that you will have and thus needs to be treated always in a sacred manner.
  • You will become aware of the Do’s and Don’ts for your drum.
Participants need to bring a small empty spray bottle for water to keep drum skins moist, an old towel to use as your work surface, journal and pen, and a blind fold or mask if desired for use in journey work. Also a blanket or scarf to carry your drum home.

Please Note:
  • Wear comfortable clothing
  • Bring: Notebook, Pen, Water, Snacks, Drum or Rattle
