The Spirit of the Drum and Making Your Drum with Lynn
In many Indigenous cultures and traditions, drum making and the use of drums are sacred events where the intent or sacred breath that you put into your creation and the energy work you are doing are key elements in the process. In Native American cultures, drums are used in many different situations: special rhythms played for healing purposes; to induce and sustain trance-like states or consciousness where the energy raised is directed towards a specific purpose like world peace; steady and/or uplifting beats suitable for ceremonial work such as in the various dances of the Pow Wow; prior to undertaking shamanic work, spiritual journeys and vision quests; to link members of different communities together at special festival times; in drum circles to celebrate the Full Moon and to promote healing/meditation; and to bring all into harmony and unity with the Earth Mother since the beat of the drum mimics Her heartbeat and our own.
Focussing your intent:
Drums are sacred. They are always treated with respect and honour. In Indigenous cultures they are neither seen nor treated as toys. Drums are not played in anger although drummers may play their drums in soothing and repetitive tempos to help release and heal anger in others. Consequently, it’s important PRIOR to making your drum that you work out what your intent is – WHY are you making your drum and therefore what energy do you wish to put into Her? During the actual drum making workshop you will be reminded from time to time to focus on ‘sacred breath’ – that is, to refocus on your heart intent and to consciously put that energy into your drum as you birth Her.
Come along to a sacred circle and birth your own drum.
A one day workshop where you make a Native American style medicine drum using your own inner wisdom to birth your sacred instrument with love, respect and honour using prayer & sacred breath.
