About this Event

We were all born with a drum – our heartbeat. We hear the heartbeat of our mother in her womb, and the drum is the heartbeat of our Earth Mother and our Ancestors. Making contact with a drum awakens our sacred, awakens our soul.

The drum is a powerful tool for a Shaman. The Shaman uses the drum beat to access an altered state of consciousness to perform journeys for self, others and the earth and universe. We follow the drum beat to other dimensions and other worlds, travelling where no time and space exist. The drum beat also acts like bread crumbs being left along the trail that we can follow to return home to this reality.

The term “birthing” is used in relation to creating a drum, because it is truly a process of creation. Like human procreation, the drum is the combination of two individual spirits – the tree spirit and the spirit of the animal that contributed the hide. Bring the two together in ceremony with intent and a new spirit is conceived. Much like our human children, this new “drum child” has chosen you as a parent, to be your friend, teacher, mentor and healer. Each drum is unique and brings its own character to our lives.

Our 3 day Retreat begins Friday evening with a traditional European sacred sweat to purify ourselves and set the intention for our weekend. Saturday we will create our drums in ceremony, with a drum circle and journey-work in the evening, and Sunday morning we will explore our drums and have an opportunity to add sacred symbols we journeyed for the night before.

Camping and all meals are included. All food is harvested fresh from our farm and forest. We are a 28 acre permaculture farm and retreat center, located on a 850 acre lake in the Ocala National Forest.
