Medicine Drum Making Workshop
Time & Location
About The Event
Current research now shows the therapeutic effects of drumming techniques that has been used for thousands of years by indigenous cultures around the planet to treat a variety of conditions. Drumming accelerates physical healing, stimulates the release of emotional trauma, and produces deeper self-awareness. Drumming gives us an experience where we can be free to connect with ourselves and others, in order to release, restore and heal. These drums are great for drumming circles or meditation.
You have several choices in the frame size and the hide used to make your drum. We will create your own personal medicine drum in a sacred way, honoring the animal and its Medicine. The hides used for the frame drum heads carry their own unique energy, vibration, and sound. When choosing your hide, take time to consider what medicine calls you and what medicine would you like to share through your own unique beat in the world.
- DEER MEDICINE teaches us to use the power of gentleness with ourselves and to touch the hearts and minds of wounded beings who are seeking healing. It offers safety to those who are seeking peace.
- ELK MEDICINE is about stamina and has a curious type of warrior energy that teaches that pacing yourself will allow you to go the distance. Elk’s medicine will teach us how to make the best use of our energy, helping us to take on no more than we need to accomplish, and to persist on our chosen route until we have fulfilled our goals.
- BUFFALO MEDICINE is knowing that abundance is present when all relations are honored as sacred and when gratitude is expressed to every living part of creation.
- MOOSE MEDICINE uncovers the depth of who you are and aligns you with your inherent wisdom. Moose encourages the use of this wisdom to build self-esteem.
- HORSE MEDICINE symbolizes personal drive, passion, and appetite for freedom. Let the Horse leap over perceived boundaries in your life, opening a path to your goals, particularly physically and emotionally.
At the end of the workshop, we will conclude with a meditative journey to energetically connect and discover the name of our new medicine drum.
