SACRED DRUM MAKING: a pathway of connection with your own heart’s journey of awakening.Learn to find healing, self-expression, and connection to Spirit and Nature, through the guided creation of a Sacred Drum – your own individualized, portable altar. Sacred Drums are beautiful Tools that can take anyone to a state of bliss and grace very quickly, without needing years of guru, leader or practice to show us how.There is a divine call being heard around the world right now. The voices of our ancestors and the ancient spirits of our beloved planet are increasing in volume and vibration, reaching out to wake us up. This call is individually felt or heard as an “urging,” a “prompting,” a “notion,” or an “aching of the heart.” It is most certainly irrefutable and tangible to those who hear it. We are gathering to join with each other in response to this call.
How do we make the act of asking nature’s advice a normal part of everyday inventing? Learning about the natural world is one thing. Learning from the natural world—that’s the profound switch. – Janine Benyus, natural sciences writer, innovation consultant, and author.
The following classes are my heart’s offering in acknowledgement to the Ancestors and Ancient One’s who have Called — and to you, who are looking for a pathway of connection with your own heart’s journey of awakening. Classes are currently offered in Washington State.
