About the Event

Join us on a journey to create your very own Medicine Drum!

In this Weekend Workshop we will go on a journey to create a Shamanic Medicine drum.

On Saturday we will sit in circle and journey through the process of honouring both the animal and tree which have contributed to the creation of the drum.

We discover the totem energies that present themselves for your drum and together in ceremony create a Sacred Instrument that will journey with you on your Earth Walk. We bring all the elements and energies together as we create our Sacred Instrument.

On Sunday we craft your drum beaters and have the opportunity to awaken our drums, and discover some the many ways in which we can work with our drums.

All Materials are supplied for a 16" Willow, Ash or Mulberry drum, with your choice of Kangaroo or Deer hide. (Please note that hide options are seasonal, and as such I will do the best to give you your preference, however your preference may not be available.)

There is also a choice for a 16" Oak or Rosewood hoop or an Egg Shaped 14 x 18" hoop for an extra $50.

All beater materials and ceremonial cleansing herbs are included in the price.

Please visit our "Drum Totem Energies" page under "On Offer" for more info on the different energies.

Morning and Afternoon Tea provided.  Please bring a plate to share for lunch (nut free please)

Making your own drum is not a quick process, in order to create a Sacred Instrument we are required as the drum maker to give of our energy and time just as the tree and animal have given of themselves.  We start at 9am, and try to be finished by 5:00.  We have a maximum of 8 participants to ensure that everyone receives the support they need in creating their Medicine Drum.  In some cases groups may be larger if a second facilitator is available.

We do hold drum journeys as part of the workshop.  If you have never journeyed before, don't worry we walk you through it.

An important part of the process is the Awakening Ceremony.  This is done to awaken and breath life into your drum, so that your drum will be ready to journey and work with you on your Earth Walk.

At the end of the workshop, you will leave with a beautiful drum and beater ready to embark on your journey together.
