Medicine Drum making Class

November 12, 2019 at 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


NOVEMBER 12, 2019

Have you ever wanted to make your own hoop drum?

Drums have been used since the beginning of time to align with your personal rhythm and for communication and community celebration. Making your own Drum is a sacred activity and can deepen your earth wisdom connection. All class supplies will be provided. Please bring your own lunch. There is some flexibility for the class to also be held another time that coordinates with the schedules of those who are interested and ready to have their own drum this year. Please prepay and order your hide selection in advance by October 30.

Chose a power animal to support your journey:

Elk Medicine gives us the stamina and endurance to get through the edges, from the known to the unknown.

Buffalo offers strength and protection, wisdom and guidance from the Ancient Ones, the Ancestors who came before us.

Deer opens the heart Chakra, teaching us to trust and to empower the feminine qualities of Love and Wisdom.

Connect to your personal rhythm and the heart beat of the earth. This afternoon you will have the opportunity to make a 15″ maple rim medicine drum and beater. We will gather in sacred space and participate in a guided meditation to connect to the spirit of the totem animal. Focus and patience will guide your parayerful intentions ot create a powerful companion for your journey.

$250.00 includes 15” Hoop drum and beater supplies, animal totem spirit attunements, and guided instructions. Class open to 6 participants. Save your space and call to pre-order your preferred materials 2 weeks in advance of the class start date.

Highly recommended Padded drum bags are available for pre-order as well (purple, red, dark blue, emerald green for an additional $45.00).

All the materials are gathered in a sacred way with respect for the circle of life. There are natural variances in the hide colors and patterns. The perfect one will choose you.

She made the Buffalo Drum (on the left in the picture) in the Sonora desert in 2013. Her Shamanic Training began with Brant Second and Dance of the Deer Foundation in Portland Oregon in 1986. She has taken the Medicine for the Earth training with Sandra Ingerman in Sante Fe New Mexico. She has also attended workshops with Brooke Medicine Eagle and integrates these trainings with native practices learned from her years in Sweat Lodge with her Nez Perce spiritual sister Sharon Stevens. 

This drum making class can be taken on its own or as part of the Temple Of Light Academy Shamanic Practitioner Certificate Program.
