Drum Birthing - Unique and Tailored 1~2~1 retreats
“ The Tree birthed the drum so that we and spirit could talk with common tongue”

E Bonnie Devlin - Huntogi Drum Master

We are all born with our own personal drum – our own heartbeat.

We hear the heartbeat of our mother in her womb, and the drum’s beat is the heartbeat of the Great Mother held in your hands.

Throughout history the heartbeat of the drum has been used in personal and healing ceremonies, for journey work and celebrations. The sound of the drum reconnects us to the heartbeat of our Earth Mother and our oneness with all.

The tradition of drum birthing has been handed down person to person since ancient times. You will be birthing a personal ceremonial tool crafted with carefully sourced materials.

Every drum has its own energy and voice, the drum is a powerful tool with which we can work to honour spirit, for healing, or for clearing and generating energy.

Birthing a drum can be a magical artistic process of co-creation with sacred hide, wood and spirit.

One to one or small group instruction is completed with a journey to meet the spirit of your drum as you begin your healing path together.

The Drum is the spirit horse that carries us between worlds, taking us on journeys into new dimensions, helping us to ride the tides of life, it touches memories inside each and every one of us, of something very deep and very old; of a time when we came together as a people to drum, dance and sing - rooting ourselves into the earth.

to birth the drum that honours the womb space for women.

Every drum birthing day is unique but a general outline of what you can expect is given below.
Included in the costs are overnight accommodation for one night with a simple supper, self service breakfast and lunch along with snacks and hot and cold drinks for the duration
Your drum birthing will take place over an evening and a day and will be a time of retreat, journeying and ceremony, working with gratitude in sacred space and connecting to the tree and animal spirits who have come together with you to create your spirit drum
You will prepare the frame and decorate it with dyes and oils and paints in your own unique design.
We will journey to connect to the tree spirits and choose the wood for your beater
We will labour together with laughter and joy, there may be tears too that need to be woven into this mirror of you. So we will dream into being this magical partner for the rest of your life, your own sacred spirit drum
To complete the bonding at the end of the day I will take you on a guided journey to meet the spirit of your drum and we will bless the drum in a sacred ceremony as you take the first steps on your new path together.
