Birth your own medicine drum in our Shamanic Medicine Drum Making Workshops. The drum echoes the heartbeat of the Earth and enables us to connect with the sacred rhythms of life. Drumming is known to boost your immune system, and can be used to calm and center you. It has a pan cultural history as a sacred tool in women’s spirituality and religious life. Layne Redmonds powerful book When the Drummers Were Women documents women’s history with drumming across the Middle East, and Europe. Max Dashu’s work documents the use of the drum throughout Asia, the America’s, Africa and Europe.
The frame drum is a shamanic tool used for general well being – for meditation, for ritual, ceremony and for journeying. It is a musical instrument and used for dance, for joy and for deep connection.

The next Four Seasons Journey begins February 2024. At our Opening Gathering you birth a drum into the world and yourself as drummer. At each of the next five gatherings we drum together by the fire, singing songs, dancing and deeply connecting to the earth, the feminine and our selves. This is a year long program, an immersion in the women’s mysteries. Join us!
You can choose to make your drum in the garden, in a private room or in the communal space.
In a drum session, Sarah sets up a sacred space and offers you the opportunity to tap into the reservoirs of your deep embodied wisdom as you journey to the beat of the drum. She facilitates the drum journey & the sharing and reflection of the information, and messages you access.You can also travel with the drum, much like a guided meditation or visualization- to the deep pools of wisdom within and without.
Sarah offers drum journeys to all women. You can journey with a specific aim, such as meeting with your power animal, healing messages, to connect with your baby or you may journey to be open to whatever messages are held for you.
