Healing Circle with the Full Moon in Scorpio

This will be an evening of ceremony, clearing, reset, reflection, visioning, and illumination.

What to expect for your evening:

  • Gather in sacred ceremonial circle.
  • Clean and clear with smoke (palo santo and sage).
  • Open a medicine wheel and call our allies.
  • Vibe up and Blessing with flower water.
  • We will work specifically to clean deep emotional wounds and the shadows in the watery depths of our beings

Full Moon in Scorpio: Emotional Depths

The Full Moon in Scorpio on April 23 illuminates hidden emotional depths, urging us to confront and release the shadows we’ve been carrying. It’s a transformative phase, encouraging us to delve into the deeper waters of our psyche for healing and renewal.

Utilize this time for introspective practices that foster emotional release. This Full Moon supports a cathartic process of letting go, allowing us to move forward with greater lightness and wisdom.

Heal the Shadows with Great Mother Kali Ma Journey

Divine Mother Kali Ma is the Death Card in the Mythical Goddess Tarot, and the Goddess we need to help us release the deep watery scorpion energies that derail us from our lives. She is here to rebirth us into greater emotional balance as she cleans our hearts, our emotional bodies, and our souls of that which no longer serves us.

We will invoke Kali Ma into our ceremony, and bring her as our focus for Shamanic Journey. We'll ask her to help us forgive and transform our shadows so we can heal the wounds that caused them.

Bring Items for the Altar to Be Blessed

Stones, crystals, written prayers, candles, family photos, small statues and items of meaning, flowers, etc.

Women's Wisdom Circle

(After the New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Aries April 8th)

The April 12th, After the New Moon/Solar Eclipse Women's Wisdom Circle is dedicated to harnessing the power needed for New Beginnings with HEART, courage, focus, determination, and tenacity. How determined are you to get what you want? Gather in a safe space of the heart for the support you need so you find the courage and the healing to make the changes you want to make in your life. We are close enough to the astrological event of the new moon and solar eclipse to harness its energies to help you move forward.

"The Solar Eclipse in Aries carries profound symbolic significance, offering a moment of powerful rebirth and fresh starts, wiping the slate clean. Its pioneering energy is especially potent, urging us to embrace new beginnings with courage and authenticity. Reflect on the areas of your life ripe for transformation—this eclipse is your cosmic ally, supporting intentions that align with your true self and catalyzing projects that reflect your deepest values.

Sun-Mercury Cazimi: A Moment of Clarity

Following the eclipse’s intensity, April 11 brings a Sun-Mercury cazimi in Aries, offering a rare moment of lucidity amid the retrograde’s haze. It’s a brief period where insights can shine through, providing clarity and understanding in our thoughts and communications.

Embrace this day for critical thinking, planning, or heartfelt discussions. It’s a prime opportunity for breakthroughs, so stay open to the revelations that may emerge, guiding you toward clearer paths ahead."

Shamanic Practitioner and energy healer Katherine Skaggs is coming to town. Register now for a personal Sacred Womb and Heart Healing Ceremony hour-long Session at Inner Haven Spiritual and Creative Development Center. Call 224-252-2945 to schedule your appointment. Schedule early to insure your a session with Katherine. Limited appointments are available.

Sacred Womb and Heart Healing Ceremony - A Specialized Shamanic Healing Session

This ceremony is to honor you as the Divine Feminine, as the Divine Mother, the Divine Child, and the chalice of love, wisdom, and light. No matter your age, you are sacred. As soul you chose to be in a female body this life. You are the vessel for the highest frequencies of love and light to come through you and your womb space.

As women, our womb is the seat of our deepest intuition, wisdom, creativity, pleasure, power, and knowing. Whether you have children or not, you are a creative, birthing being. (Men do have this power too of course.) If energetic blocks form in our sacral chakra, we may lack creativity, passion, purpose and flow. Good chance we are stuck. Our wombs are a direct opening and doorway for our spirits to enter the physical realm. Whether it be a baby or a grand new idea to manifest, your womb when connected to an open heart can give birth to amazing new life.

If you have experienced any abuse, shame, fear, fright, trauma, negativity as woman - difficult experiences as woman, as mother, as female child - there is good possibility your body and energy centers hold low energies that need to be released for you to be fully healthy physically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. The Womb space often acts like an emotional junk-drawer. We often store energetic imprints of past relationships, lovers, emotional memories, and trauma. Left unattended these imprints may linger, buried deep in our subconscious and psyche, creating energetic blocks in our womb space, as well as in our heart and other energy centers.

The sacredness of your soul, your body and womb space, and heart are tended to in ritual and ceremony.

What Happens in a Sacred Womb and Heart Healing Ceremony?

A safe, private, ceremonial space is created to honor you as Divine. This healing ceremony is to restore your womb and heart space to the highest frequencies of love as you are cleaned and cleared energetically. Sacred anointing oils and flower waters, with the addition of the highest quality of Rose powder (made of rose petals in their most pure form) are applied in ceremony onto your belly/womb space, your heart space, your crown, third eye, throat, solar plexus, hands, and feet. This process is to clean and clear any old energies that do not belong, allowing you to come home to yourself in a Divine Feminine Soul Retrieval and Blessing Ceremony.

Your ceremony is all about restoration to innocence and purity, Divine love and wisdom. Katherine works with intuitive guidance and a team of Divine Mothers to restore and initiate you into your highest Divine Mother Self. No matter your age, this energy is meant to heal body, heart, mind, and soul. In the process you may experience ancestral lineage healing, as may your children, parents, family, siblings, and loved ones. You are the chalice and the conduit for great light to come into and through you.

Sacred Womb and Heart Healing will involve shamanic healing techniques and energy work, combined with some bodywork, anointing oils, sacred smoke, drumming, prayer and channeled guidance.  It is to help clear trauma and emotional blocks from the womb and the heart, as well as past imprints from previous lovers. Sacred Womb and Heart Healing can also help dissolve energy cords of attachment, as well as support emotional and physical healing from losses such as miscarriage, stillbirth, abortions, infertility, sexual abuse, and any sense of shame or negative thoughts and feelings about motherhood or being a woman.

Every session is unique, filled with nurturing. Expect to be cared for, honored, and held is safe space.

Sacred Womb and Heart Healing is a profoundly transformational experience. It has the potential to heal thousands of years of ancestral wounding and degradation of the feminine.

Sessions May Include:

  • Fire and smoke clearing

  • Grounding

  • Setting up of an individual altar for your ceremony

  • Singing, rattling, drumming, and other shamanic sound healing techniques

  • Guided Drum Journey meditation

  • Laying on of crystals

  • Anointing with flower waters, sacred oils and rose powder

  • Channeled toning and guidance

  • Release and rebirth

  • Sealing up

***There is no sexual touching or exposing of your genitals. You are treated in deep respect for your body, heart, and soul.

What to Bring for Your Healing -All optional and suggestions. Trust what you desire to bring.

  • You will be asked to wear loose clothing that you do not mind any of the oils possibly touching. Everything is oriented to honor you at the deepest levels of being sacred.
  • Bring items for the altar - a crystal or stone that represents your healing.
  • Items to represent your children if you like and have children
  • Items to represent your mate or loved one... and even for those you are releasing.
  • Items to represent your ancestral lineage.
  • Any statuary of healing deities in your life.
  • Offerings for Mother Earth as you release what no longer serves you. This can be a flower, some incense, a piece of sage, seeds, dried flowers of past, herbs, and anything organic that represents your gratitude you give back to Mother Earth and the Divine.

Shamanic healing works on the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical levels. These ancient methods work at the deepest levels of energy and can create great shift, especially when the client is open to the concepts shamanism offers for healing and wellness. Katherine works with you to return balance of spirit, in all realms. This applies to not only one's human body, but all aspects of their lives.

Awakening Your Soul Spark

Sunday, June 2nd - 9am to 5pm

Explore your Intuition, Hopes, Dreams, and Heart's Desires

Expand Your Intentionality,  Imagination, Curiosity, and Courage to Create

The Intuitive Painting play day is your opportunity to discover your inner artist, and the power of intuitive painting.  Whether you are a seasoned artist or beginner, Katherine will bring you into a safe and scared space to play with the intuitive painting process. Tune into your intuitive nature and to make your mark in any color, shape, and form you like. You are the artist and the editor of your life. It is time to trust you are capable and courageous enough to explore the creative process that plants seeds for new life. Work with intuitive painting to express your intentionality, curiosity, and wonderment for dreaming life big.  Katherine will guide you to work with the intuitive creative process, as well as how to work with the materials, color, symbolism, and intention to connect to your inner creative spark, your creative Inner Artist. Ceremony will hold the space for diving deep into your creativity and imagination, to open the doorway to visioning, and how to bring that to a canvas.

Intuitive Painting studentIntuitive Painting Theme is Awakening Your Soul Spark with New Beginnings

Within the day's sacred container we will work with the energy of Spring, of the Cosmic Void of potentiality, and the clarity of focus for planting seeds for new life. We'll journey with the Spring energy bursting forth from Mother Earth to express our hopes and dreams and being born anew.

Creativity and Curiosity

The intuitive painting process uses canvas, paint, and the power of your curiosity to explore your soul's inner symbol system. Are you ready to awaken your intuitive creativity, and its power to support you in creating the life you want?

What if you could create a more loving, exciting, peace-filled, and abundant life? What if you can edit our life story and empower yourself as story teller and story maker? Are you ready to expand your story into greater harmony, love, and joy? What does it look like, feel like, taste like, sound like, to Awaken Your Soul Spark. There is nothing more important than realizing you are the Creative Spark who directs your life.

Everyone of us is a creative being. If you don't think of yourself as an artist, it is time to reconsider that you are born a creative being, even if you don't draw, paint, sing, dance or such. You imagine and create your life each day. It is within you. It drives your choices and responses to the world. Becoming aware of this divine spark within your very being is part of your journey to awakening your true nature. With intention, curiosity, and the courage to show up, you have the opportunity to awaken and engage this divine spark in your every day consciousness. This is a time to connect to your Divine Inner Artist Spark, and bring her forth.

Indigo Child intuitive painting soul portraitImagination, Innocence, Purity, and Childlike Wonderment

When we begin anew, we are in a vulnerable yet powerful energy of innocence and purity. These qualities are potent regenerative energies for creating our heart's desires. Are you tired of the adulting? Are you ready to laugh again, and move into the freedom of play? How would you like to imagine again?

You will be supported to release old, limiting beliefs and energies as you explore the power of curiosity and childlike wonderment in your intuitive painting process — opening the doors to joy, fulfillment, heart, and great happiness.

We will work with the energies of the Full Moon in Libra in ceremony and ritual to awaken and heal the heart. The full moon in Libra with a lunar eclipse excites the heart with its romantically charged energy. Libra is the sign that governs the heart spaces. We'll use this time to reflect upon our closest relationships of the heart. We'll practice finding gratitude for those that ground, encourage, and inspire you to be the best you possibly. And also time to let go of the energies that keep us from the heart of what matters. It is time to find balance in how you relate and connect.

Full moons are a great time to release the old and to manifest the seeds of what we planted on the New Moon. This full Libra moon brings the energy needed to clear up the old and come into greater balance. The period of influence of this Full Moon is 6 months from the day of the lunation. It is time to reset out of the old ways so new life can be manifest.

Fire Ceremony - Release, Burn Away, Illuminate, and Ignite

This Spring Equinox Fire Ceremony is a place to ceremonially burn away and alchemize the old. Alchemy is the process of transmuting lower, base elements into gold. The Alchemy of the Soul translates this into the process of taking the shadows and challenges of life and transmuting them into the golden light and wisdom of the soul's journey. Fire ceremonies are excellent rituals to symbolize shadows with sacred objects and intentions that we release into the fire.

The element of Fire creates rapid transformation. It gives us what is required to let go of the old story and drama, to  transform, to renew and to be reborn. A fire ceremony is a place to pause and refocus. It is a place to honor your life's journey and the lessons you have endured. As you place them into the fire you let go, alchemize, and transform with the support of the Divine.  As you release these old patterns and experiences, and any outdated beliefs into the fire, you can heal deeply at the level of the soul.

What to Bring:

  • Slippers for the studio - you will be asked to leave your shoes at the door
  • ***Potluck item if you plan to come early for the potluck share
  • Offerings for the fire - written prayers to release what no longer serves you, seeds (symbol of new beginnings), any organic items that are for letting go of the past and old patterns, also any organic items that seed your future.
    • You can create an offering bundle too... a collection of burnable, organic items wrapped in paper or cotton. It can be a bundle of sticks, a bundle of sage, a bundle of seeds, old flowers, prayers, and incense. Be open to your guidance.
    • The offering bundle helps you to focus your intentions and prayers into an active prayer to the Divine.
    • Connect to your bundle. Blow your prayers and intentions into the bundle 3 or more times.
  • Items to get charged on the altar - crystals, written prayers, photos of loved ones and self, flowers, candles, medicine bags, power items, etc.

Dream Anew - Pharoah's Blend Blue Lotus Tea Ceremony

In Japan tea ceremonies are a spiritual practice and even part of some spiritual trainings. Preparing and drinking tea is a meditative process that brings tranquillity, and balance to participators. The choice of tea brings its own energy and blessings as each plant, flower, or herb is medicinal in nature. During our March Women's Wisdom Circle tea ceremony we will enjoy the blessings of the Pharoah's blend of Blue Lotus Tea, Chamomile, and Passion Flower.

Blue Lotus is traditionally known to be a gateway to the Divine. For centuries, Blue Lotus has been respected as an ancestral flower known to induce deep meditative energy, enhance third eye function and motivate lucid dreaming. The effects of the Blue Lotus, or Blue Waterlily, can help decompress the nervous system and relax the whole body and mind.

Chamomile is traditionally known to soothe the nervous system and help with a restful sleep, promoting dreamtime and restoration.

Passion Flower is also well known to calm anxiety and sleep issues, heart rhythm problems and overall pain. Spiritually passion flows will open the heart to love and passion, soothing negativity and angry energy.

What to Bring

  • Slippers for the studio - please leave your shoes at the door
  • Altar Items that represent blessings you are bringing in for yourself and building greater love within and in all aspects of your life.

Shamanic Practitioner and energy healer Katherine Skaggs is coming to town. Register now for a personal shamanic healing session at Inner Haven Spiritual and Creative Development Center. Call 224-252-2945 to schedule your appointment. Schedule early to insure your a session with Katherine. Limited appointments are available.

Individual Shamanic Healing Sessions

The purpose of shamanic healing is to cleanse the body, to clear the energy field, and to restore balance to the mental, emotional and physical body and soul. Through every day life we interface with both life giving energy, and deadening energy. Fear, fright, and trauma energies, negativity thinking, EMFs, can all lower our vitality and ultimately cause illness. Shamanic healing is designed to clear these deadening energies, restoring your physical and energetic vitality, and filling your energy with life giving Sami, aka prana or life force. Restoration of the soul and any lost energy or lost soul parts is addressed. This may include supporting an individual in clearing an energy leak due to trauma or fright, then calling back any lost soul energy due to a trauma. Fright, trauma, and fear contribute to being out of balance… whether it be recently, in childhood, a past life, or a time you cannot recall. All healings are aimed to restore the soul essence as well as the physical container and energy bodies. Homework is often given to the individual to support their healing process over time. Restoration results in a return to peace, and harmony. This will extend into all areas of life as the person is able to settle into the new pattern that is a return to one’s blueprint.

What happens in a Shamanic Healing Session?

Each session may include a variety of shamanic healing modalities, such as singing, drumming, rattling, feather work, extraction, soul retrieval, physical manipulation or shipibo shamanic massage work, with the use of essential oils, and flower waters. Sage or sacred tobacco smoke may be used with your permission (but will have to be outside since this is a commercial space.) If you are overly sensitive to smoke or essential oils, let Katherine know and she will refrain from using smoke or other fragrances.

Are you ready for change, for endings of patterns of suffering, and open for new patterns of health, well-being and happiness? How willing are you? And are you also ready to take responsibility with any homework and such to support your healing?

Shamanic healing works on the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical levels. These ancient methods work at the deepest levels of energy and can create great shift, especially when the client is open to the concepts shamanism offers for healing and wellness. Katherine works with you to return balance of spirit, in all realms. This applies to not only one's human body, but all aspects of their lives.

An important concept of shamanic healing is that you take responsibility for the shift you desire in your life. Even when things seem to "happen to you", there is some component of you being in the middle of creating every experience of your life. Ultimately this is how you dissolve victimization, and take your life back. Having an attitude of being part of the healing, of being receptive to and asking for assistance in the shift, offers up an empowered approach to healing.

Each session brings guidance based on your intentions and questions you have for your soul guide(s) and higher guidance system. These sessions can bring in an ancestor, an angel, a guide team, totem spirit animals and even higher dimensional guides who we identify as other worldly, cosmic, or other species. Be assured each session brings love and illumination into your life.

Joy, laughter, and tears often accompany these sessions, as they always bring in a great amount of love, confirmation and connection to those who love you so very much. If you have a specific guide you would like to come into form, ask too for that guide to show him/herself. If it is a specific animal totem you would like to connect to, also ask for that guide to come in and bring their messages, their gifts and their strengths to support you. If you have particular healing and guidance you need, always ask so the session can focus on that particular need you have at this time. Don't be shy.

Soul Portraits and Spirit Guide paintings are always spiritual activations and can be used as spiritual tools through open eyed gazing, prayer and meditation practices.

Hindu Great Mother KaliThe Full Moon energy is an excellent time to gather in a full moon healing circle to clean out the old energies that need to go, so you can open to the blessings coming your way.

Join me, Katherine Skaggs, for a shamanic healing circle. You will join in ceremony and ritual with the Goddess Kali. AS we invoke Kali into our spaces during this healing circle we will call in the energy of death and transformation for the which no longer serves us. Kali is a goddess of great protection and light. She helps us to let go of ego, attachments, and all things harmful so we may return to our true nature of love, light, wisdom, and preciousness.

In this Full Moon Shamanic Healing Circle you will experience distance healing energies and a drum journey and meditation with Kali, We'll call in the support we need to move forward in love.

Great Mother Hindu Goddess Kali is the perfect Divine Mother to assist us in healing so we may move forward in love. She is a fierce protective mother who helps us clear out destructive energies that harm us. She also guides to have better boundaries when we haven't known how to truly love ourselves. Behind her dark blue black skin and frightening appearance you will find a loving mother who will show you how to truly love yourself. She is both the dark and the light, the fierceness of protection and the sweetness of love.

Shamanic Healing helps to clear negative energy. It also infuses you with high frequency life force and light, resetting you into a more harmonious energy that supports a more joyful life. If we get frightened, fearful, and traumatized by life events, hucha (a quechua word for fright) disturbs your energy and causes continual distortions in your life experiences. It is important to clear this energy as soon as possible and to keep our energy clean so we may flow in greater harmony and happiness in your life. Distance healings individually and collectively are very supportive in helping you reset your energy, clean your mind, and support your growth in positive ways.

Snow Full Moon in Virgo Full Moon Healing Circle
Hard Work, Manifestation, Healing the Shadows, Order

The Full Moon in Virgo brings the hardworking energy of Virgo into all we are creating in our lives. Now is a great time to work hard and manifest what you truly desire. You may find yourself organizing and putting your life in order in ways you haven't been able to do for a while. The Full Moon in Virgo can help you tie up loose ends and complete cycles and tasks you haven't been able to get done. A great time to finish your taxes!

Detox and Heal Subconscious Destructive Patterns & Shadows

This moon energy is also a time to detoxify from old thoughts and beliefs that limit you, or make you feel not good enough. The Virgo Full Moon can also bring subconscious fears and doubts to the surface so you can heal the shadows that lurk below the surface. Once you clean out the subconscious you can lean into your dreams and know that YOU ARE good enough to have what you truly want. It is a great time to share your talent and stand in your brilliant light.

Full moons are a great time to release the old and to manifest the seeds of what we planted on the New Moon. This full moon brings the energy needed to clear up the old and come into greater balance.

Invoke Hindu Mother Goddess Kali (art by Katherine Skaggs) for the February Full Moon in Virgo Healing Circle
Mother Goddess Kali

Heal the Shadows with Kali Journey on the Virgo Full Moon

For years I have been working with Great Mother Kali, the revered Hindu Mother Goddess of Creation and Death, and the death card in the Mythical Goddess Tarot. She asks to join us on the Full Moon in Virgo to help us face our shadows and release the fears that stop us from living the life we want.  She is the perfect Mother Goddess to assist us in shifting our inner blocks, uncovering unconscious patterns and emotional that prevent us from realizing our dreams.

We will invoke Kali into our ceremony, and bring her as our focus for Shamanic Journey to help us cleanse and let die the patterns of pain and unworthiness. We'll ask her to help us accept our shadows so we can heal the wounds that caused them.

The Healing Ceremony with Kali and the Full Moon in Virgo

This will be an evening of ceremony, clearing, reset, reflection, visioning, and illumination.

What to expect for your evening:

  • Gather in sacred ceremonial circle.

Join Shamanic Practitioner Katherine Skaggs in her home studio for the February New Moon Women's Wisdom Circle.
3148 Birmingham Drive in Fort Collins, CO

The New Moon Women's Wisdom Circle

The new moon cycles always mark a time of New Beginnings, a time to open a new chapter and introduce new ideas, new relationships, and new ways of being. February is often thought of as the month of the heart, relationships, and love. This is a great time to celebrate self-love, as well as love with another. It is also an excellent time to release any and all patterns where where your heart is not open, needs healing, and expansion.

Bobinsana Flower for Healing the Heart

Healing the Heart - Fire Ceremony and Bobinsana Tea Ceremony

This New Moon Women's Wisdom Circle is dedicated to the HEART! As we gather we will have the opportunity to release the patterns that have created hurt hearts, broken hearts, limited hearts, and challenges to being in love with ourselves and our lives. We will honor our sacred life journeys and in fire ceremony release offerings of the heart into the fire, that we may let go of any thing that has kept us from love for ourselves, and for others. Then we will engage in a Tea Ceremony with the sacred Peruvian plant medicine of Bobinsana. Bobinsana grows on the Amazon River and is well-known for its healing properties for the spiritual heart, and the physical heart. In our Bobinsana Tea Ceremony we will call forth the Spirit of Bobinsana to assist us in healing and opening our heart spaces that we may love and be loved more deeply.

February 9th, New Moon in Aquarius - New Beginnings, Visioning a New Life and a Whole Heart

In astrology, new moons bring beginnings and change. They’re a time to lay the groundwork for the goals you wish to accomplish in the next several weeks. February’s new moon rises in innovative Aquarius, urging you to question your values and how you fit in the world.

This zodiac sign is ruled by Uranus, the planet associated with rebellion and progressive change, which can translate into abrupt endings and plot twists that shake you to your core. There is a great Humanitarian vibe that comes with Aquarius, so grab this energy and know your changes are part of the leveling up process we are in on a global level.

“It has the potential to liberate you in ways that are hard to even imagine right now,” says astrologer Ryan Marquardt.

“A new pathway is unfolding before you, which can come with a healthy dose of uncertainty about where it leads or if you’ll be capable of handling it,” he says. With the support of Aquarius by your side, those who luck out during this new moon will be empowered by the fixed sign’s unwavering ethic.

Focus on Optimistic New Beginnings at the Women's Wisdom Circle

The new moon cycles always mark a time of New Beginnings, a time to open a new chapter and introduce new ideas, new relationships, and new ways of being. Our last new moon of 2023 was in Sagittarius, giving us the fire we needed to be honest and brave, seeking knowledge as well as adventure and fun. This Capricorn New Moon adds the energy we need to jumpstart the hopes and dreams we are focusing on for 2024.

January 11th, New Moon in Capricorn is Great Energy to Jumpstart Your Goals!

The influence of Capricorn energies in early 2024 are perfect for helping you set realistic New Year’s intentions — and then actually follow through on what you truly desire. Work with this down-to-earth energy to connect with your long-term goals, take responsibility, and tackle the projects that require a little extra structure and discipline.

Mars joins the sun in Capricorn on Jan. 4, bringing added stamina and zeal to the industrious vibes of the season. Having Mars in Capricorn will be just what you need to focus on what you want to create and then do the work needed that will jumpstart your drive to succeed and make progress on your desires.

Mercury joins the Capricorn party on Jan. 13, two days after the Capricorn new moon. This transit helps with clarity on your objectives, supporting practical thinking and plans to move forward.  This will be the time to clean up any communication messes that may have been made during the planet’s retrograde back in December.

If you haven’t quite gotten a grip on your New Year's goals, this New Moon Gathering will be just what you need to get going on your desires. This New Moon squares off with the North and South Nodes of Fate, challenging you to overcome the confines of your comfort zone and push toward a more spiritually fulfilling future. Gather in tribe to help clear out the old and set a new energy for your dreams to come true.

Gather the Women in Ceremony

  • Join in sacred circle with other women to focus on your heart dreams and what is important.
  • Come into the sacred circle with the opening of a medicine circle, calling our allies, the Divine Mother, and our helpers to support our dreams... creating a safe space for our seeds to grow.

Make Your Own 18" Hand-drum
Saturday, February 17th, 2024
Noon - 4:30pm

Choose Elk, Horse, or Buffalo Rawhide for your drum

Learn to make your own 18” 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 workshop includes all materials to make your drum, within the practice of sacred shamanic ceremony. Everything will be taught in a ceremonial way, with prayer, smudging, and connecting to the spirit of your hide.

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.

Drumming is an excellent way to clear low-frequency energy, open the heart, and recenter into joy. A shamanic practitioner use drumming to journey to meet their spirit guides and totem animals for wisdom and healing. 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. You will have the opportunity to infuse prayers, intentions, blessings, and gratitude energies into your drum.

Choice of Rawhides for Your Drum:

Choosing your animal hide for your drum - Most people lean to choosing the animal rawhide for their drum based on the animal energy and totem they prefer working with. That is a great way to go. AND, if you are making your first drum you may consider working with Elk as that is typically an easier hide to work as you learn to make a hand drum in ancient style.  The thicker hides are more difficult to mold around the hoop. though  it is often a bit more challenging to work into making a drum. If you are good with your hands it may not matter. Everything you need to make your drum, whether it be your first or your 5th, will be provided in class.

Buffalo -  a totem of strength, abundance, stability, freedom, gentleness, gratitude, and prosperity. Helps to keep you grounded and connected to Mother Earth.

Elk - a totem of stamina, steadiness, strength, sensual passion, nobility, pride, respect, and survival. Elk is also known to bring divine protection, helping one to also follow the right path. It helps people with good hearts.

Horse - is the totem of freedom above all else. The horse is a majestic animal that embodies the spiritual power of independence, freedom, nobleness, endurance, confidence, triumph, heroism, and competition. Its symbol is associated with strength, courage and freedom.

Maple Tree Medicine (the hoop frame wood) - a symbol of strength and endurance.

Alder Tree Medicine (the drum beater stick wood) - a symbol of determination, inner confidence and release.

You will leave with a completed drum and drum beater.

Register Early. Deposits are due at the latest by January 31st, 2024 to insure your space in the workshop and to buy the materials for your drum. Limited to 10 participants.

All creative materials provided: rawhide drum head and lacing, maple hoop frame; alder stick, leather, padding and sinew for drum beater.

Class will be held at Katherine's Studio, 3148 Birmingham Drive in Fort Collins, CO
