Heart Of The Earth Drum Making Retreat

10/24th & 25th

@ Golden Well Farm & Apiaries/2 Wolves Center: 

1089 River Rd. New Haven, VT 05472

The drum is a sacred instrument that invokes the heart and speaks a universal language. Its rhythmic heartbeat is at the center of ceremonies held by people all over the world.The shamanic drum is used to communicate with the Spirit and to connect our hearts with the heartbeat of the Earth. It is a powerful medicine that heals the body, heart, mind, and spirit. 

In this workshop we will come together in a sacred space to create our own ceremonial drums and learn a frame drum-tying technique that was taught to us by our teacher and elder, Maestro Manuel Rufino. 

We will be making one-sided hand drums, using wooden frames made of maple and deer, elk or buffalo hide, and sinew. 

The creation of the drum is a prayer and a ceremony in itself. We will work with our drums as a visioning meditation for our lives and our paths, so that our thoughts and intentions remain in a high vibration as we create the drums and through that process they become part of the drums. Each participant will paint and build their drum while sharing and listening to sacred songs from different Native traditions. Making your own personaldrum is a sacred journey and the power of making something like this with your own hands is incredible, it becomes an extension of your own heart & mind.
