About the event

Hi Friends and Family

Yes Family, it is that time of the year where Shamanic Earth Medicine offers our 2 Day Shamanic Medicine Drum Making Ceremony here at our awesome property and retreat space at Currumbin Valley on the Gold Coast.

If the Medicine Drum has called you in the past and you have always wanted to make one, or you have one and find now it is time to create a second Medicine Drum, then maybe it is time to join us for this experience of a lifetime.

As you open into your own inner wisdom and breathe your Sacred Breath, trust your inner guidance through the process of crafting this empowering experience of creating your own Medicine Drum.

Allow yourself to surrender into the alchemy of your heart, as you are held through the journey of connecting with these ancient shamanic practices.

Awakening, through your personal journey and medicine, creating a sacred instrument for ceremony, celebration, healing, and journeying with love, respect, and honour.

The creation of a Medicine Drum with Peter and his team is a very unique experience here in Australia. Peter shares the lineage of 'The Sacred Hoop of Life', teachings and blessings received from his teacher Grey Wolf, an Inupiat elder and Medicine Man from North America. Grey Wolf is no longer with us, but his teachings and wisdom live on through these sacred Medicine Drums.

This lineage is deeply sacred and transformational. Shamanic Earth Medicine has been honouring Grey Wolf’s Lineage now for more than 35 years. 

The weave of the Drum has no knots and is one continues thread that is weaved all the way through the process of stringing this Drum

Awakening one's own Medicine Drum is a profound and life-enhancing experience. Grounding into the wisdom of the "Sacred Hoop of Life" connects us with nature, the elements, the rhythms and cycles of our heart and our planet, Mother Earth.

The materials we use and the spirit of the animals are all honoured and blessed with deep reverence and gratitude.

Included in the cost of the ceremony:

* Lunch, morning and afternoon tea Saturday

* Lunch, morning and afternoon tea Sunday

* Materials for creating a drum beater

Why this Medicine Drum Making Ceremony?

This is not just a Drum Making experience, but 2 full days immersed in ceremony honouring tradition. Opening the space with a unique altar we create as a group. Interwoven through the drum making process is the depth and grace of Peter’s teachings and his lineage of the Sacred hoop of life.

Creating a medicine Drum is a process, a rite of passage when approached with reverence and proper time is allowed to surrender into the creation. We move through the depths of surrendering as you awaken your drum, coming into your own power in this process.

You will learn how to play your drum in the traditional Shamanic ways. 

We share different drum beats and the purposes of these.

Our medicine drums are of very high quality; the materials we use, and the intricate crafting techniques are clearly apparent in the finished product and in their long term functionality and durability. Our drums stand out as beautiful examples of the complexity, meaning and history expressed through this traditional way of weaving a medicine drum.

A well made medicine drum should stand up to the test of time, Peter has been making medicine drums for over 3 decades, the first drums he made are still in regular use. Peter’s 35 plus years’ experience have afforded him tricks of the trade to assist you in making a clean and perfectly aligned drum.

Community Building & Sacred Human Connection 

Being a 2 day journey where we deepen together through shared meals, sharing wisdom and ceremony this co-creation experience is in itself deeply tranformational and a powerful aspect of the connection and integration of the experience.

Unique and personalised drum blessing from Peter to activate your drum. 

This is such a special process of honouring both you and your Drum.

Traditional Storytelling over the weekend further connects you to the lineage of your medicine drum.

We share in depth about drum care and etiquette to ensure you are well informed about the proper care and use of your drum, adhering also to proper traditional protocols and practices.

The weekend is fully catered with delicious nourishing vegetarian food, 

and you are fully supported to completely surrender into the whole experience.
