Drumbuilding Seminar

drumbuilding seminar

In this two and a half days seminar I (Peter) will guide you (max. 4 participants) in English language and in a very respectful way, to build your own dream drum. The drum is a powerful and sacred tool in the shamanic ways and building a drum is a sacred process. That’s why I only take this few amount of participants per course, as it has the huge advantage that you will be taken care of individually and in the best possible way.

The drums we create will work for whatever purpose you want, also for sweatlodge ceremonies and shamanic work. We will include all aspects of our life, the spiritual, the emotional, the intellectual and the physical, to make you a beautiful and powerful tool.

The deadline for sign ups to this seminar is the 22nd of April.
This deadline is due to the materials that needs to be ordered.

As we will go with the flow and take care of each individual participant in the way he / she needs it, I kindly ask you for some flexibility with respect to the time frame.

On the first day we are going to have a drumming, all together on the big pow-wow drum. By that we tune into our intention and the building process.
Also we will use a part of our time during the building procedure by giving thanks and showing respect to the elements, the animals and trees who gave their lives so we can build these drums.

We start the practical work by choosing the frame, that I have prepared (appr. 35 cm diameter) and the hide that we want to use. This will be done in a special way, a way that will establish a deep connection to your drum. The hide will most likely be stag or cattle, depending on what’s available.

Then we’ll start to work on the drum frame and we will take all the time that feels right to each of you so that you can deepen the connection to your drum and make it look the way you want it.

Around noon we will take a break with some good and warm ecological food so that our bodies will get some nourishment too.

When the frame is ready, we will have, what I call “the wedding”. That’s when we combine the hide and the frame to a unit of deep, strong and lasting connection. This is an ipmortant process, as these two spirits will unite, in order to become one. Again, we will take all the time that it needs to give birth to ayour new and powerful tool and partner. When the work is finished, each of you can then decide if you want to take the drum home or leave it at Wildheart-Center to dry until we meet again. I strongly recommend to leave the drum here as I will guide the drying process so that the drum will enfold the sound, that it’s most powerful in.

Before we finish, we invite you to a talking circle that gives you the opportunity to reflect on your process of this day and you can share it, if you wish to.

The next time we meet, will be the following Friday afternoon at 16:00, where we will focus on the initiation of the drum in a very special ceremony which we will end with a common drumming, each on his/her own wonderful new drum.

The maximum amount of participants on this seminar will be 4 and the price is 3.500 DKK per person which includes all materials, one ecological meal, as well as two times coffee and cake or snacks. Registration is required, as well as a downpayment of 1.500 DKK which secures your space in this workshop. You can buy your ticket (downpayment) by clicking here.
