Shamanic Drum Birthing Retreat: 8-10th October 2021 - Full fee - Residential

Residential Full fee - applicable from 25th September 2021

Create your own shamanic drum & beater

Your drum

During this residential weekend you will be birthing a 40cm/16inch (approx) frame drum covered with deer hide. We will be using the energy of the burn (stream) which runs alongside my home in the process, connecting you and your drum to Scotland. 

You will also make a drum beater made of natural materials to accompany your drum.

We may be working outside around the campfire –  weather permitting! We will retreat to the bell tent/outbuilding/indoors if the weather (or midges) dictate.

The weekend

Accommodation is at my home on Argyll’s Secret Coast in single occupancy twin rooms. Simple vegetarian food is included, e.g soup at lunchtime plus breakfasts and evening meals. Drinks and snacks are included during the day.

Starting after the evening meal on Friday and working through to around 8:30pm is your preparation time.  Breakfast is at 8:30am, giving you plenty of time for an early morning stroll on the beach or in my private woodland. Then from 9:30am-5:30pm approx on Saturday you will be birthing your drum. Saturday evening will be more relaxed.... though you will still be creating! On Sunday morning you'll be finishing your beater before we awaken your drum through ceremony. We finish late morning when you'll be free to depart or if you wish you can stay for a light lunch before your journey home.

What to bring

Toiletries - towels are provided. Indoor footwear.

Waterproofs and layers including warm footwear. 

Something to wrap your drum in to get it home - it will still be damp at this stage. Plus, any feathers etc that you want to decorate your drum beater with.

A notebook to capture your insights from the shamanic journeys.
