Join Katherine Skaggs to make a 15″ Horse hide drum in sacred ceremony and ritual the way our ancestors did. You will have the perfect setting to call in the spirit of your drum, connecting to the power and freedom Horse brings to you. This is the perfect time of year to work with Horse as one who assists you in moving to your goals through the power of the heart, so you are free to live a soulful life.
This playshop includes all materials to make your drum, within the setting of sacred shamanic ceremony. We will open a medicine wheel and call in the elements, ancestors and all our allies. You, as well as all of your drum materials will receive a smudge cleansing prior to making your drum. You will also have the opportunity to infuse your drum making process and the drum itself with prayers, blessings and intentions.
The ancient style drum is a beautiful instrument of the heart. It is used often for personal pleasure, shamanic healing work, drum circle gatherings, and shamanic journey work. The melodic beat move you into trance-like, inward, meditative states for accessing wisdom, guidance, and the place of calm of the heart center.
In shamanic healing work the drum is known to bring in a powerful vibration that clears blocks in the energy bodies as well as opens the spiritual heart center. A practitioner may assist another in journeying to meet their spirit guides and totem animals for wisdom and healing, or may journey for the them. Drumming can move one out of the linear, left brain, into the frequency of peace obtained in meditation, which is also associated with the right brain.
Making your own drum in a sacred, shamanic environment helps you to get in touch with the spirit of your drum, as well as the spirit animals associated with your drum hide of choice. There is ceremonial work to connect you to the essence of your drum as a heart instrument. This ceremonial playshop infuses prayers, blessings and gratitude energies into your drum.
You will leave with a 15" horse hide drum and drum beater. (The drum cures and is ready to play in 3-5 days.)
The Horse Spirit Animal and Totem brings the energy of power, stamina and freedom! To work with Horse Totem energy through your drum is truly a way to bring your Horse Medicine to Heart. If Horse is calling you now, know the you are being called to awaken to the freedom and power of being authentically you! Awaken your true power of Soul through the heart beat of Horse medicine. Ride high on the winds of life, balancing your inner and outer worlds through the deep vibrations of the heart.
