Throughout history the heartbeat of a drum has been used in shamanic work, in healing ceremonies and for personal healing. Making a drum can be a very powerful way to re-claim your medicine, as the sound carries our sorrows and joys straight to source. Drumming can also awaken our soul memories, and open us up to the possibility for our own healing and wise inner knowing. This is a very peaceful place to reside.
If you feel ready to create your own a powerful medicine tool, creating a drum is a wonderful place to start. This course/session is an add on to my Woman's Red Drum making course-however this can also be added on should you wish to simply buy a drum making kit and make a natural drum as well.
How it works: Once your drum is finished and ready to be woken up we will get on a skype call for approx 1-1.5 hours and begin in a simple drum waking up ceremony. Moving on from there participants will learn about the role of shamanism and drumming throughout history, and how drumming scientifically affects our brain patterns, calming us and inducing a natural trance like state.
I will then journey to retrieve an animal guide on your behalf and then we will move into a ceremony so that you can learn how to journey shamanically using the beat of the drum, and will have the opportunity to discover your power animal, learning how to connect with it through the use of your new drum.
