Medicine Drum Making Workshop 22/23 May 2021, Yarra Valley
Making your own medicine drum is a deep and powerful experience. As Shamanic Womancraft practitioners, we encourage you to approach the process with awareness and consciousness. We support you to make yourself a personalised shamanic tool, and to also have a shamanic experience. You will be supported to connect with the animal of the hide you are using, the timber of the frame and the way you are with the creative process.
This two day workshop will be held on the Weekend of Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 May 2021 in the beautiful Yarra Valley. You will be involved in all aspects of creating the drum.
This workshop is for women only- including those who identify as woman. The space will be lovingly held by graduates and Teacher of the Four Seasons Journey of the School of Shamanic Womancraft: Sarah Miller and Emilie Alciato are both graduates of the School and share a common passion for empowering women to “midwife themselves”, to access their own power, healing and transformation. They believe that making and using a medicine drum is a wonderful part of the journey and feel honoured to support others on this creative path.

The workshop will run from:
9 am to 5 pm on Saturday 22 May and
9 am to 5 pm on Sunday 23 May 2021,
in the Yarra Valley, Victoria.
You will be held in a safe and sacred space as you birth yourself and the drum through this creative shamanic (meaning ‘inner’) process. The process you undergo as you make the drum will be reflective of your own birth story, the births of your children (if you have any) and how you do “process” in your life both creatively and in relationship to Other.
Throughout our workshop, each woman will be honoured as both student and teacher and together we will hold a collective space for transformation and growth.
