Medicine Drum Workshop- June
Learn how to weave your magic and birth your very own medicine drum!
Does the sound of drumming move you deeply?
Does it resonate on a level that you can barely describe?
Are you a healer wanting to take your practice to the next level?
Has making a drum been on your list for a while now?
It's time to step into your light, take a deep breath, and get your two beautiful hands working!
I have held space and shown many women how to make their own drum without them having prior experience in drumming, weaving, or crafting.
I AM HERE TO GUIDE YOU STEP BY STEP THROUGH THE PROCESS OF BIRTHING YOUR OWN UNIQUE MEDICINE DRUM.
16 inch Willow Tree Hoop (kangaroo) OR
18 inch Red Oak hoop (deer)
Full uncut kangaroo or deer hide
Synthetic sinew of varying colours
All tools to complete the process; scissors, punches, glue, etc
Decorative items: natural feathers, crystals, ornaments, etc.
Locally custom-made mallet (Paul from Gongwalkabout)
Local bespoke cotton drum bags (made by my mamma bear, Susan from Susie's Home Crafts)

WHAT MAKES ME QUALIFIED TO TEACH THIS WORKSHOP?
Not only have I made many medicine drums and taught others how to make their own, but I am also a qualified Yoga Teacher, Reiki Practitioner, Sound Facilitator, and Meditation Teacher.
I have facilitated workshops, classes, day retreats, weekend retreats, and online sessions.
Using these modalities in these different formats, I have spent the last 5 years bringing people back into their bodies, easing their minds, and settling their nervous systems.
I currently spend my days finding new ways to empower women to discover their true selves so they can live a life they love.
I really hope to see your beautiful face at this workshop!
