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 deeply transformative experience connecting with yourself and your baby drum. 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.
The drum is a sacred tool, an instrument of music, an intimate partner in the soul’s journey. It is woven through time with women’s spirituality. When you make a drum, you enter into a shamanic process of personal healing. You enter into the lineage of female drummers.
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. You will be involved in all aspects of creating the drum.
This workshop is for women only. The space will be lovingly held by graduates and Teacher of the Four Seasons Journey of the School of Shamanic Womancraft:
Sarah Miller: Shamanic Craftswoman, Teacher of the Four Seasons Journey, Story-Teller, Earth-Keeper, Moonsong Facilitator and Early Childhood Educator. www.embodimentsdance.com.au
Emilie Alciato: Shamanic Craftswoman, Mother, Dancer and facilitator facilitator of monthly Moon circles, and Chant de Lune, Medicine songs for women at Peace Farm in the Yarra Valley.
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. Through the drum making you also may connect with the spiritual lineage of women drummers across time and cultures.
The relationship with your drum can last a lifetime. You bond with plant, and animal and the life that is your drum.
We welcome you to join us for this magical transformative weekend.
