MEDICINE DRUM MAKING IN A SACRED WAY
The making of drums for the purpose of Shamanic work has been done for centuries. Making the drum with proper intent and integrity is necessary when bringing such a wonderful ally and tool into this world.
Meetup event: meetup.com/austinshamanism/events/238619860/
A $50 class fee is being asked in addition to the cost of the drum kits. To secure your spot, please contact Nate Long via email at [email protected]
or Jason Traweek at [email protected]
to make payment (cash, check, card or paypal)
There will be a limit of 15 attendees for this class--- so register soon… (a waitlist will be started if needed)
A full refund will be made only before Saturday, May 13. 50% refund after.
Each attendee will need to order their drum kit online before May 13. You can order your kits online at: furandhide.com, cedarmountaindrums.com, or from other online suppliers (we recommend these sites because they seem to treat their products with respect). Please make sure you order well in advance so they arrive a couple days before class (you will need to soak the hide at least 4 hours, no more than 12, just before coming to class (length of time to soak is dependent on type of skin you choose to work with). Drum kits will range in cost between $60 and $150 depending on size and type of raw-hide. You can contact either Nate or Jason directly if you have questions about what to order. (please note that you will be responsible for ordering your own drum kit and having it delivered to you to bring to the class).
A highly recommended Blessing and Awakening Ceremony will be held on Monday, May 29th at 8:00pm. Additional information will be provided to those who attend the Drum Making class.
Once again… a $50 payment is needed to secure your spot (only 15 spots total). This invite is available from several sites, so the number shown on meetup or Facebook of those who have RSVP'd will not reflect the true number of the spots available. You do not need to RSVP in multiple places.
