Shape of the workshop:
Things to bring:
Native persons, the world over, use drums, rattles, whistles, and flutes in ceremony, for prayer, and healing rites.
The single faced shamanic drum can imitate thunder, pounding rain, and the heart beat, creating a steady rhythm that helps in accessing altered states of consciousness for sacred journey work.
Before this workshop you will get to choose your skin and then on the day work with that skin to create your own Hand Drum.
When Shamans "journey," they are being transported not outwardly, but inwardly by the pulse of rhythmic sound. The drum is preferred above other percussion instruments in that it carries the drummer and audience - like the hoof beats of a galloping horse or rain deer - into mystical experiences.
The round hand drum, is made from a wooden frame ( bamboo ) and stretched over with goat skin, while the underside of the drum is stretched together with strips of leather, from the same skin - arranged like the spokes of a wheel.
The drum is a collective metaphor for community making as well as having fun and creating rhythms for movement.
Some sacred songs will be shared that you can take home with your drum.
Expect nothing less than a deep dive into process and empowerment, together with your drum.
