Make Your own Drum
This is a day-long workshop where participants get to make and bring home their very own shamanic drum.
After many years of my Shamanic Studies & with my experience as a dancer & using methods of Sound Healing in my workshops. I realised one of the best experiences is to teach people to “birth” their own drum to be able to show them the importance of the rhythm, and the power of the beats. The workshop will be a magical meeting in which EACH PARTICIPANT WILL BUILD ITS OWN DRUM WITH HIS/HER HANDS, ENERGY & PERSONAL PURPOSE.
It will be a moment of introspection, movement and meditation. Its a Shamanic Ceremony with a Sacred Open Space, sometimes with the online participation of my Master in Colombia, The Shaman Mamo Comba. It will be a combination of different elements like Tantrak Meditation, Contact Movement Dance, Guided Shamanic Drumming, Sound Healing & The Guided Drum Making. Drum will be birthed in a shamanic ceremony using different elements used in the Muysca Colombian Indigenous Shamanic Tradition.
I will share Shamanic Medicines to integrated the journey and if the time allow I will offer individual Healings.
Do we remember the first sound we hear? It was a long time ago…
We would not remember it, Because the first time we heard something …
we were not even born , It was in the womb of our mother.
This beat remained in us for nine months without stopping, marking the rhythm of our new life . Today, this heartbeat is with us in our own hearts. That’s why we have such a deep connection to the sound of the Drum.
In shamanism, the drum is used for two basic purposes: to shift your state of consciousness or to move energy. Birthing your drum and being part of a process of creating and bringing into life your very own drum can be a very powerful & fulfilling process that is totally unique to you. It make you contact with the ancestral wisdom, to seek strength and inspiration in our hearts and to give birth in our reality an instrument of power, companion and a teacher, deep medicine, capable of touching the soul.
The drum is part of you. Using your drum to meditate can help you perceive your unity with the whole. We are sacred, the drum is sacred, and the sound is also sacred. To build your own drum is to get in touch with this ancestral wisdom, to seek strength and inspiration in our hearts, and to give birth to our reality a powerful instrument, a companion, and a teacher. Bringing a drum to life is like the birth of a magnificent force in our reality.
The drum is a vibrant entity, in which they inhabit the spirit of the tree with which the hoop was made, the spirit of the animal that gave its leather to the patch, and the spirit of the one who made it. During the process of weaving, you enter a deep connection of breath of life with this instrument that is about to be born, it is a creative and gestation process where all the attention, patience and temperance is required.
When you are born, each beat of the drum that you will sound will be expanding that personal medicine that you have discovered while you are tempting it and you will be expanding your voice and light to the world. Each drum is unique, just like us. The more we get in tune with him, the more revelations will be shown to us.
The drums are from 18″ & 20″ inches diameter depend the availability & request, and very special raw hides from Goat, Cow & Buffalo. Drum sticks are also provided with these drums.
It is like the birth of a magnificent force in our reality. The drum is a vibrant entity, in which they inhabit the spirit of the tree with which the frame was made of, the spirit of the animal that gave its skin, & the spirit of the one who gave it with its energy the breath of life.
Each drum is unique, just like us. The more we get in tune with him, the more revelations will be shown to us.
During the weaving process, you enter into a deep gestation connection with this instrument that is yet to be born, it is a creative process, where all the attention, patience, and temperance is required.
Along the birthing process, every drum beat you will play will be expanding that personal medicine that YOU have discovered while you tighten the string, & you will be expanding its voice and light to the world.
One of the many tools that people (Therapists, Medicine People, Shamans…) use to question what they think they know is the sacred drum. Drumming is perhaps the oldest form of active meditation known to mankind.
You can help with a wide variety of topics, such as:
- The recovery of lost aspects of the soul
- The release of unhealthy organisms
- The resolution of conflicts within the unconscious
- The transformation of negative energy from past traumas into positive energy helping people who feel repressed emotions
- Healing unhealthy patterns and habits.
Drum Meditation facilitates healthy ego-deconstruction through its powerful resonance with the deepest, which invites the soul to speak. A healthy drum meditation is like a lever taking advantage of the dark depths of our soul. What we see during our drum meditation trip has the potential to reveal clues about the mystery of our lives, as well as give us greater clarity about the purpose and meaning of our lives. But it can also upset us and cause us to pain to cleanse.
The open heart can be broken, which opens us much more to the power and intensity of the sacred. Either way, we are with the soul displaced by the immensity and charm of our journey through the inner-outer nature of the soul-world dynamics. Our souls become more robust, more adaptable to the impermanence of the world.
When the borders are crossed with the vibratory rhythm of the drum, the visionary experience tends to mix the senses synesthetically, & we take on the power of existential freedom. Imagine Neo caught in between the Matrix & the desert of the Real. What it reveals is the truth of reality: there is no separation, everything is connected, everything is a synergy of both cosmos and psyche. “We live in a world that is neither ‘inside’ nor ‘outside’.”
With enough practice, the power of drum meditation can help us develop what is called “coexistence tools” because it gives us the courage to interpret and live our own destiny instead of simply going through the movements of life and life. transmitted destination.
