Day of the Drum
Time & Location
About The Event
Join me at Shaman's Retreat to birth your own drum. Right from the start, you'll be encouraged to take photos so that you'll have a lasting record of every stage of the process. This is an experiential practical workshop which can also provide a quantum leap into deeper shamanic awareness.
What you can expect from Day of the Drum:
- Being held in sacred space. Enjoy a ceremonially blessing to create harmonious and creative energies.
- Connectiwith the energy of both the wood and the animal; each is honoured and given equal consideration. This includes being with trees outside, and giving thanks to the animal.
- Discover the myths and magic surrounding the wood and the shamanic meaning of the animal
- Receive gentle guidance through every step of the process, from final prepration of the hoop, cutting the hide and the lacing, to threading, tensioning and creating your own design.
- You'll get to choose your own drum beater from my handmade collection, using various woods and different colour heads.
