~Ceremonial Drum Making ~

August 12 & 13
@ Private Forest Sanctuary 
in Grass Valley, CA


Feeling the call of Mother Earth?

In the depths of your core?

The interconnectedness of your hearts beat?

“ Be held in a prayerful container as you weave your own sacred medicine drum.”

In prayer and presence, we weave these medicine drums into being, our hands flowing as extensions of our heart’s intentions.

These ancient instruments connect us to the heartbeat of Mother Earth. They open a whole realm of sound and rhythm, pulse and prayer. They also open a relationship with the spirit of the animal that is woven into the drum.

These drums will be woven completely with animal skin, (as opposed to string) which I really love the feel of. The cross design of back handle is light and comfortable to hold. The frames are beautifully crafted with red cedar from my friend.

We are offering you a space to awaken your wild remembrance. And to create your unique medicinal drum.

Through guided movement and meditation journeys, we will support you to make a powerful connection to the spirit of the animal you are weaving with, opening this deep relationship of sound medicine and connection to the heartbeat of Mother Earth.
