Shamanic Drum Making Playshop

11am – 3pm

Sacred Drum MakingNative Hand Drums

Learn to make your own 16″ deer or 18″ elk rawhide drum on a maple hoop frame, and drum beater, in sacred ceremony and ritual the way our ancestors did. Call in the spirit of your drum, and infuse your drum making with love and intention.

This playshop includes all materials to make your drum, within the practice of sacred shamanic ceremony. We will open a medicine wheel and call in the directions and all our allies, we will smudge and smoke ourselves and our drum materials while setting intention and sending prayers to Spirit.

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 can help you enter into trance-like, meditative states to assist you in accessing wisdom, guidance, and the place of calm of the heart center.

In shamanic healing work the drum is known to bring in a vibration to clear blocks in the energy bodies as well as to open 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.

Deer Medicine Totem is the totem of the heart. Click here to learn more about Deer Medicine.

Elk Medicine Totem is a powerful animal totem representing strength, stamina, passion, nobility, respect and survival. Click here to learn more about Elk Medicine.
