About the event

This special event combines the crafting of your own sacred medicine tool with the celebration of the Summer Sol-stice (standing sun) - a major point on the sacred wheel of the year. We'll gather in sacred space and you'll be gently guided throughout the day as you birth your own drum. This will be followed by a BBQ supper and fire ceremony to waken the spirit of the drums. This is a great opportunity to be part of a small gathering that honours the individual and which can also provide a quantum leap into deeper shamanic awareness.

What you can expect from Midsummer Drum Birthing Experience

  • Being held in sacred space. To begin, everyone will be ceremonially blessed and the medicine wheel elements will be honoured and called in to create harmonious and creative energies.
  • Connecting with 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
  • You'll receive gentle guidance through every step of the process, including preparation and oiling of the hoop, cutting the hide, preparing the lacing from the same hide, piercing and 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.
  • Evening ceremony to welcome your drum into the world
  • Lunch and evening BBQ supper provided (if you have any specific dietary needs please get in touch)
  • Overnight accommodation available if required
