The Drum is a sacred instrument that invokes the heart and speaks a universal language. Its rhythmic heartbeat is at the center of ceremonies held by peoples all over the world. The shamanic drum is used to communicate with the Spirit and to connect our hearts with the heartbeat of mother Earth. It is a powerful medicine that heals the body, heart, mind and spirit.
In this workshop we will come together in a sacred space to create our own ceremonial drums. We will be making one-sided hand/frame drums, using wooden frames made of maple and hides of elk, buffalo, horse, moose or deer, and sinew. We will also be creating beaters for our drums out of various woods you bring to our gathering. Leather and sinew will be provided.
The creation of the drum is a prayer and a ceremony in and of itself. We will work with our drums as a visioning meditation for our lives and our paths, so that our thoughts and intentions remain in a high vibration as we create the drums, and though that process become part of the drum. During that time we will share and listen to sacred songs from different cultural traditions. Making your own personal drum is a sacred journey and the power of making s your own is incredible, it becomes an extension of your own heart and mind.
