Medicine Drum Making Workshop

Join us for this special opportunity to create your own Medicine Drum.
The creation and birth of a medicine drum is a sacred journey of self-awareness and intention. The medicine drum carries the spirit of the tree the hoop is made from, and the spirit of the animal from which the drumhead and lacing are made from. The tree and animal spirits combine with your spirit journey thus far, your prayers, intentions, the collective ceremonial energy of all gathered for the workshop, and the great creative forces that move through you to birth your drum.
These alchemical elements fuse together to create your medicine drum. During this workshop you will be asked to step into the hoop of sacred ceremony with all who gather, and the elements of nature to be fully present and alive in creative flow as these medicine drums come to life.
It is an honor to be a keeper of the heartbeat of a medicine drum. Over the years of joyful playing in prayer and ceremony, the potency your drum’s unique voice and medicine will grow richer and stronger.
