Sacred Drum Making
Sacred Drum Making Class
SATURDAY, APRIL 22 1 PM-5 PM
Join us for an afternoon of self-discovery through the sacred art of drum making. Our day will be held at the Saint Croix Healing Arts Center in Hudson, WI.
This class guides you through the art of stringing a ceremonial drum using a traditional native drum-making technique. This experience invites an opportunity to deepen your connection to this process through a series of meditations led by the ceremonial drum.
Each participant will be provided a 15” drum frame, elk rawhide, lacing, and the necessary supplies to make their complementary drum beater. This class is designed for people of all ages and skill levels. You do not need to have any prior experience and will be guided every step of the way.
Rhythm and vibration are at the core of creation. ALL OF LIFE is dependent upon this universal heartbeat. Although infinitely present, our modern world has distracted and numbed our awareness to this natural rhythm; consequently leaving us feeling disconnected, discouraged or depressed. Drumming invites oneself back into alignment with the vibration of the universe. Join us as we come together for an afternoon of community, connection and inspiration through the sacred art of drum making. In this this class we will:
- Connect with the spirits of nature
- Cultivate relationship through guided mediation
- Create your own personalized drum!
Pre-registration required by April 10, 2022. Cost for the event $250
