About The Event




The medicine drum is a powerful tool for self healing and shamanic journey, and if youre already a healer its a must for sound healing, soul retrieval or holding space. With current events there has never been a better time to invest in the well being of ourselves, clients, family and friends. The drum has the ability powerfully assist in breaking old patterns and visioning new realities. If you have been calling a drum into your life this workshop is for you...

Please read all info below thoroughly 



These typically fill up fast so don't wait to register.

The gift of a drum will be with you for decades and for many this marks the beginning of a new time in life.  There will be an ancestral altarspace and the drums are made in a fun but sacred way to begin a relationship of magic for years to come. For many, this is a day of healing as well as making a drum. The drums are soaked in water and herbs and we will be working with these plants while we make the drums as well. In the past, the herbs have included local Sage (Artemesia), White Sage, Mullein, Uva Ursi, Juniper, and Tobacco. Working with the plants brings another dimension of energy to the drum making process for cleansing and ancestral connection.  

We will be making drums outdoors in accordance with curent pandemic guidelines and group comfort levels. In the case of inclement weather we will be indoors. There is plenty of room for distancing and so on.

About the drums, ethics, etc...  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

All materials are ethically sourced and of the highest quality. Drums will be made in a sacredly held container where your intentions will be honored, and the animals, trees, and materials are all honored as a part of the sacred circle of life. I have invested many hours in learning methods to make drums that both look and play amazing.

Anthropological research suggests the frame drum originated in Siberia thousands of years ago before migrating around the planet. There are traditional stories that suggest the drum is much older than that. Where did it originate? Regardless, these drums have played very important roles in traditions from Native America and all over the world. For interesting info visit where there is a compilation of various styles from over the world. Interestingly I do not see references for Native American use of this style of drum here. It would be nice to see that addition to the page. Traditional stories sometimes say the drum was a spirit that came to help them, the heartbeat of the earth. The drums we will be making are a contemporary style, influenced by Native American as well as Northern European styles. Exact wrapping styles may vary between ceremonies.

I offer these workshops with humility and the intention to heal, honor and lift the spirit of humanity, the earth, and all the diverse life she carries.
