Spirit of the Drum

Four Week Online Course - 15th September until 13th October 2021

Many now are feeling called to work with the healing rhythms of the shamanic drum in their personal practice and in what they share with others. The drum can be a great teacher, healer and friend on your spiritual journey.

In this four week online course, we will bathe in the rhythm of the drum and share in techniques for healing and for journeying. We will also look to find our own unique rhythm through the drum and learn how to work with it as a tool for personal healing and spiritual growth, learning to work with the Spirit of the Drum from a place of gratitude and respect.

As well as a chance to dedicate time to your relationship with your shamanic drum, this online course aims to deepen your understanding and practice with it, so that you can grow your connection with it, and use it with confidence. This will include:

  • connecting with and deepening your relationship with the spirit of your drum
  • learning to connect with your own rhythm for healing
  • ceremonies and practices for honouring your shamanic drum
  • weekly exercises to practice and deepen your experience with your shamanic drum
  • learning how to use the shamanic drum for clearing personal energy or your home
  • learning how to drum a shamanic journey for yourself
  • guidance for properly caring for your shamanic drum
  • guidance on painting or decorating your shamanic drum

This course will run across five weeks, starting on the 15th September, including three fortnightly group sessions on Sep15, Sep29, and Oct13 from 7pm-8:30pm (UK time). Weekly classes and practices shared by prerecorded lessons for you to work through in your own time.
