About the Event

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

In this 1 day workshops we 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.

All Materials are supplied, including all ceremonial cleansing herbs.

Time:  9:00am - 5:30pm

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 his/her energy and time just as the tree and animal have given of themselves.  We start at 9am, and try to be finished by 5:30, however depending on the number of participants this may vary.  We have a maximum of 9 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.  

Morning and Afternoon tea are provided.

Participants are asked to bring a plate of food to share for lunch.  We ask that participants do not leave to eat lunch elsewhere as this can disrupt the energy of the circle.

We do hold drum journeys as part of the workshop.  If you have never journeyed before, don't worry we walk you through it.  A Journey can be described as somewhere between a guided meditation and a daydream.  It is hard to describe however if you have more questions please feel free to contact me.

An important part of the process is the Awakening Ceremony.  This is done to awaken and breathe 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 day, you will leave with a beautiful drum and beater ready to begin your journey together.

Total Cost:  $375
