FRIDAY AUGUST 12TH. inMALIBU, CA
11 AM- 8 PM
The drum is a sacred instrument that invokes the heart and speaks a universal language. Its rhythmic heartbeat is at the center of ceremonies held by people all over the world. The shamanic drum is used to communicate with the Spirit and to connect our hearts with the heartbeat of the Earth. It is a powerful medicine that heals the body, heart, mind, and spirit. We will be making one-sided hand drums, using wooden frames made of maple and deer, elk or buffalo hide, and sinew.
In this workshop Brooke, Matt, and Shola will come together in a sacred space to share the techniques to create our own ceremonial drums and learn a frame drum-tying technique that was taught to us by our teacher and and elder, Maestro Manuel Rufino.
The creation of the drum is a prayer and a ceremony in itself. We will work with our drums as a visioning meditation for our lives and our paths, so that our thoughts and intentions remain in a high vibration as we create the drums and through that process they become part of the drums.
Each participant will paint and build their drum while sharing and listening to sacred songs from different Native traditions.
Cost of the workshop includes art materials and drum supplies.
