Join us in this sacred Shamanic Drum Making Workshop for Women.
Making a frame drum is a deep and powerful process of birthing a shamanic healing tool for personal transformation. The drum is a sacred tool, an instrument of music, and an intimate partner in your soul journey. When you make a drum you enter into a shamanic process of personal healing.
Frame drums are woven through time with women’s spirituality. In this One & Half Day Shamanic Drum Making Workshop for women only, you will be joined by sisters, together co creating safe and sacred space to birth your drum.
Deep Ceremony and Sacred Circle
This is a time of deep ceremony and we invite you to birth your drum in your own way- though instructions and guidance are provided!. You can choose to make your drum in the garden, in a private room or in the communal space. It is important that you tune into your own needs as a birthing woman. You will be lovingly midwifed through the process by Graduates and Teacher of the School of Shamanic Womancraft, Sarah Miller and Emilie Alciato.
Your Midwives for the Workshop:
Sarah Bird Miller: Teacher of the School of Shamanic Womancraft Four Season Journey & MoonSong Workshop, Dancer, Story-Teller, Earth-Keeper, and Early Childhood Educator. www.embodimentsdance.com.au and
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.
You will be held in a safe and sacred space as you birth yourself and the drum through this creative shamanic (meaning ‘inner’) process. With intention and consciousness you can connect with the animal of the hide you are using (Deer/Kangaroo), the wood of the frame (Hoop Pine) and the way you are with your creative process. The relationship with your drum can last a lifetime.
Birthing a drum will be informed by your own birth story and how you do creative processes. It is helpful to bring as much awareness to your own birth story, the birth of any children you have, and the way you birth creative projects, idea and business ventures.
When you birth your drum you also birth yourself as a drummer, connecting to ancient pan cultural lineages when the drummers were women.
