Medicine Drum Event

Medicine Drum Making in Asheville, North Carolina September 22nd, 2019 from 11:00 to 4:00 at a beautiful location in the River Arts District in Asheville, North Carolina.

Together we make a medicine drum in a sacred ceremonial way, with mindfulness and intention.

The earth yearns for drumming for it’s the heart beat of the drum that brings us to a grounded state of consciousness. A personal drum made with focused intention and a sincere heart becomes an extension of you and will provide great comfort and healing when used. The rattle is another tool we can use for going on a shamanic journey or to support us in our work with others.

You will be supplied everything you need to create your own frame drum and accompanying beater. Some supplies I will suggest you bring. While you are making your creations you will be taught the care and feeding of your drum, as well as how to use them in healing and ceremonies.

We will begin with a Drum Journey to connect to the Heartbeat of the Drum, and then start the process of creating you’re drum.  After creating the drum, we’ll celebrate its birth with a special ceremony.  Birthing a drum is an intense process, one not easily forgotten. The drum face can later be painted with your Animal Totem or designs. You can also personalize the drum with beads and feathers to strengthen the connection with your drum.

I also offer private drum making sessions or you can commission me to make one for you! If you would like to organized a drum making workshop in your city please contact me.

Death and Dying the Shamanic Way Virtual On-Line

Oct 12 - Nov 16 2019

Location: - -

October 12, 19, 26, November 2, 9, 16

10:00 – 12:00 PST

11:00 – 1:00 CST

12:00 – 2:00 EST


Death and Dying the Shamanic Way is one of the main themes for anyone who practices shamanism. We die and are reborn in ordinary reality as well as our physical bodies die and our soul carries on.

The Shaman or Medicine Man or Woman healing the living and the dead. It is our responsibility.

Is there life after death, I believe so and many who have experienced a near death experience believe it to be so.

Learn how to deal with the issue of dying and the destiny of souls from a shamanic perspective. The course is for those who wish to learn for themselves, and for those who wish to help others who are terminally ill or who have already passed on.

Experiences and initiations include learning how to become experientially familiar with the after-death landscape, tracking a person using shamanic journeying, completing unfinished business, helping a person to cross over, and classic psychopomp work.

You must have good shamanic journey skills and know how to journey with a power animal or spiritual teacher and be familiar with the lower world, middle world and upper world. This work is mostly middle world work. You will bring about healing for yourself and gain a deeper understanding of death and not be afraid or fearful of this natural process.

Death is the one thing that happens to all of us and to do so with grace and ease and support others in this process is a gift on to itself.

The cost for this 6 week on-line virtual course is $250.
