Drum Making is a Sacred Act

Create Your Own Two-Sided Shamanic Journey  Drum

More than just a crafting project, Drum Making is a meditation, an act of creation, the bringing to life of a vehicle for Journeying!

During this three-day workshop of ceremonial creation, each person will construct an authentic two-sided Shamanic Drum, a Drum that is the expression of their own uniqueness and relationship with the Spirit of the Drum.

Awakening of the Drum requires consecration, returning the Elk Spirit, of the hide used, back to its Spirit Home and connecting the wooden rim to the World Tree/Tree of Life which enables all trees to sing the prayers we send forth while drumming with a consecrated Drum.
