Trance Dance with Shaman Leo Rutherford

  • Barn Croft The Street Lewes, England, BN7 United Kingdom (map)

Your very own drum is a special friend who will heal you, take you on breath-taking journeys and share with you a connection and oneness with all. To birth your own drum is a truly rewarding experience; putting your love, intent and energy into this powerful medicine tool will make a truly special drum for you indeed.

In this full day workshop, you will birth your own Shamanic Drum in a day ceremony, honouring the sacredness of this healing tool. The drums are made in the traditional way using lacing cut from the same hide, thus keeping the spirit of the animal within the drum, in a ceremony, honouring the spirits of the animal and the tree. When you have birthed your drum, you will be led on a journey to connect with the spirit of your drum.

You can birth a drum of either stag or horse - please let me know at point of paying Participant Deposits which you would like to work with.

The options are:

Hide – Stag, Horse or Reindeer

Hoop – Oak, Ash, Birch, Willow

Size – 16” or 18” (+£20 for larger size)
