Ballater, Glen Gairn, Ballater AB35 5UH, UK


There is something ancient and primal about playing a drum by a fire, out in the woods or at the riverside...tuning into the heartbeat & rhythm of ourselves and life around us, feeling the vibrations and reverberations on our skin, moving through the body🌲✨🔥🦌  "It is often said that the first sound we hear in the womb is our mother's heartbeat. Actually, the first sound to vibrate our newly developed hearing apparatus is the pulse of our mother's blood through her veins and arteries. We vibrate to that primordial rhythm even before we have ears to hear" - Layne Redmond, When the Drummers were Women: A spiritual History of Rhythm  If you feel called by your future drum and want to learn how to birth your own medicine drum with intention and surrounded by nature, then this is for you! I am excited to be offering a day of crating your very own medicine drum in spring, creating as new life emerges out of winter& the dark.

  • guided breath& sound journey to set your intention for the day and for your drum
  • all materials and instructions to craft your drum
  • all materials to craft your drum beater
  • warm lunch
  • tentipi as shelter near the river and surrounded by trees
  • guided meditation to rest and relax at the end of the day
