The experience of creating a Medicine Drum with Peter is a very unique opportunity to access here in Australia.

Grey Wolf is no longer with us, but his teaching and wisdom live on through this sacred lineage.

This lineage is deeply sacred and transformational. Birthing one’s own Medicine Drum is a profound and life-changing process. The wisdom of the “Sacred Hoop of Life” connects us with nature, the elements, the rhythms and cycles of the planet, and our hearts.

The materials we use and the spirit of the animals are all honored and blessed with deep reverence and gratitude. We use locally and ethically sourced hides where possible.
