Shamanic drum building Courses
– A combination of craftsmanship and shamanic journey!
Experience our 5-day exciting and intensive workshops, where the process of creating your own unique Shaman Drum becomes a personal spiritual adventure.
We offer you 5 exiting, intensive days with an introduction to shamanic journey. – And absorption into the Shamanic world as we move on with the creation af our Shaman Drums.
Through many different shamanic journeys we will initiat individual and collective spirituel experiences. – And little by little you will establish a very special relationship with your Drum as a partner in shamanic work.
The shamanic journeys (drumming journeys) are an important part of our workshop.
The participants are invited to take notes as well as to share their journeys with the group.
We consider a shamanic journey as a gift. For self reflection and to express and share the experience is important for one self. – And a worthwhile experience for the listener.
Beside the shamanic journeys, the group will practice various ways of drumming. All ready from the first day – ( on borrowed Drums.)
We will also use rattles, work with sound and motions. In order to tune in to our power animals and helpers in the spiritual world.
To our experience the amount of drumming and ratteling will rise a high energi within the group.
We will also spend time in nature to find power. This with the purpose to get connected to the spiritual world and to get help to create our Drums .
Since building a shaman drum is a very intensive process we have chosen to make the courses residential courses. We combine craftsmanship and shamanic journey. We anticipate 5 days and 4 nights.
The workshop will be from around 9.30 in the morning till late evening.
The last night is a very special night! This is when the Drum “is born” and this night will also be a watch night where those who have the urge, can sing, dance, travel. Or you can just sleep in the room where the drums get their unique sound.
There is no special prerequisites to attend the workshop. Appart from desire to work with your hands and an openness and willingness to be part of the community and the group energy generated.
We will also guide you through the practical part of the work.
On location you will receive following materials for your drum: 1 handmade frame of birch, beech, pine or ash, 35-50cm diameter. 1 drum head of reindeer, about 30 handmade wooden pegs for mounting the head. Different plant dies for dieing the head, and felt of wool for your drum stick.
Practical matters, – time, place, accommodations, price and such are all depending on where we have the courses.
In order to participate in these courses you do not need to be familiar with the shamanic journey or practice.
The workshop includes an introduction to this practice.
