Drum Midwifery and Medicine Tools

    Drum Midwifery
     

    Drums are birthed.  They are living entities with a purpose and medicine all their own.  Like a midwife supports a mother in giving birth to a child in a very personal, natural way, I can support you in birthing a drum in a way that deepens your intimate relationship with the animals and trees who have come for transformation.  This is an all day commitment that includes time for a shared potluck meal and making a beater to accompany the drum. 

    Class size ranges from one-on-one to four people.  

    Larger groups by request.  

     

    Workshops at other locations will be priced to reflect travel expenses.

    Custom drum - I would be honored to birth a drum for you.

    Prices vary depending on size and hide. Please contact if interested.

    Sacred Tools
     

    Tools used for healing carry us, as they do the work.  Rattles, wings, extraction and cleansing tools come into form just like drums in that they hold the medicine of the animals and plants that have come forth for transformation.  

    I can teach you how to bring a rawhide rattle in being, or support you in making your own custom tool from various offerings such as antlers, shells, and feathers.

     

    Making a rawhide rattle requires two separate appointments.

    Rattlemaking class size - one-on-one up to four

    Larger groups by request.

    Workshops at other locations will be priced to reflect travel expense.

    Custom tools -  I would be honored to birth a tool for you.

    Prices vary depending on size and hide. Please contact if interested.

    ***Drum and rattle making may be combined into one workshop.

    Protection Medicine

    Protection medicine is a form of spiritual support that can take many forms.  My favorite form is a small pouch containing natural elements worn as a long necklace around the neck that can be in contact with the wearer's skin.  This is a powerful form of support that can add the stability of psychic and energetic protection in times of transition, new phases of life or as an added shield when doing any type of work, be it healing, corporate or construction.  

     

    After an intial interview, I will pray and journey on your behalf to see what elements come forward to be in your piece and the reason for their inclusion.  This will be a special prescription of natural beings that have come forth specifically for you.  I will do what is required to gather what comes forward and prepare it for creation.  Sometimes that means hiking to a specific location.

    Please note that this process happens on

    it's own.  I guesstimate 4-8 weeks, but please

    know this is on Spirit's time line.  

    Each piece is priced individually.
