About the Event

Do you crave the Slow, Gentle heart beat, in a world that just keeps speeding up?

Bring yourself back to your center, allow yourself to be still, connected, in your Power!

The Drum brings you back to the now, it asks you to be present, it calls you back to yourself!

It connects us to the heart beat of the Earth, of Nature and asks us to.....

Remember our connection,

Remember that we are not seperate, but are part of it all.  

It calls us to walk in harmony with all life once again.

Join us on a 2.5 day journey to discover how to come into alignment with the Heart Beat of the Universe!

The Drum was the first sound of the Universe!  For 9 months you heard your mothers heart beat constantly, reminding you of your connection.  

Then came the Voice, once you were born, and entered into the world you sang out to it, so it knew that you had arrived.

These 2 Instruments, the Drum and the Voice, have a powerful way of connecting us, healing us and allowing us to step up into our true selves.

During this time of great change, the world as a collective is going through an initiation.  We are running to keep up and in the frenzy, we can loose our footing, loose ourselves and our way.  The drum brings us back to our center, the place of our true power, living in the now, remembering our connectedness.  It is time to dig deep and find the strength that lies within.  

The Medicine Wheel is a road map!  These sacred wheels are found all around the world, and all have certain things in common, they teach us to be in balance with all Life.  We as a species have stepped out of time with the Natural world, we are off beat, and the whole world can hear it.  Lets explore fun, amazing and healing ways to get back in tune and time with Life.

This weekend offers you 2 options......

Option 1 - Fully emmerse yourself in the experience with a Live-in option.  Fully Catered with Twin-Share accomodation.

Option 2 - Attend during the day and sleep in your own bed at night.  Lunch, Morning/afternoon tea provided.  And Friday Dinner.

We will be journeying with Medicine Drums and Mother Drums.  

If you have your own medicine drum, please bring it along, I will have a limited number of loan drums available.

There will also be other purcussion instruments and the Mother Community drum.

Yummy wholesome Vegeterian and Vegan options will be provided for the entire weekend.

Morning/Afternoon tea and a range of teas are also provided.

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.  Making a drum requires a certain physical capacity.  If you have any injuries, back issues or other health concerns please discuss with me prior to purchasing a ticket.

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.  Along with a range of new tools and processes to keep you grounded, connected and in your power.
