Aho welcomes Shamanic drum maker, Jonathan Weekes to offer a drum birthing workshop. To birth your own drum is a truly rewarding experience; putting your love, intent and energy into this powerful medicine tool will make a truly special friend who will heal you, take you on breathtaking journeys and share with you a connection and oneness with all.
In this full day workshop, you will birth your own Shamanic Drum in a day of ceremony, honouring the spirits of the animal and the tree. We make our drums in the traditional way using lacing cut from the same hide, thus keeping the spirit of the animal within the drum. When you have birthed your drum, you will be led on a journey to connect with the spirit of your drum.
Your drum can be either stag, horse, or reindeer- please let me know at point of booking and paying deposits which you would like to work with.
The cost per person on the drum birthing workshop for a 16" drum is £250 (incl. VAT). A 50% non-refundable deposits are needed as early as possible to secure your place and to allow us time to source and prepare the materials for the workshop. Paypal is accepted though there is a small fee for this. You also receive a drum beater for your new drum. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org To book, complete the form on the website at www.herondrums.co.uk/shamanic-drum-birthing/4594020591
What to bring -Large towel to wrap you drum in, blanket and pillow to lay on for the shamanic journey, packed lunch. If you are putting a crystal in the handle of your drum, something flat about the size of a 10p piece is ideal.
Workshop Timings - We aim to start the workshops at 9.30am, so please arrive from 9am. We do not have a set end-time as I do not wish to rush people in making their drums, but we usually finish between 5pm and 6pm. That time is just a guide, so we do not recommend that you plan an evening too tightly to those times.
