If you want the deepest possible connection to your drum, you can join one of my very unique drumbuilding workshops. The drums we create will work for whatever purpose you want, also for sweatlodge ceremonies and shamanic work.
You can either come to our place in Them, Denmark or I come to you in any European country. If you want to organize a drumbuilding workshop at your place (4 people required), you are welcome to contact me.
In a two and a half days workshop I will guide you (max. 4 participants) in English language and in a very respectful way, to build your own 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 take only 4 participants per course, as it has the huge advantage that I can take very good care of each person’s individual process. In the process of creating your drum, 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.
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 pre-made frame (appr. 35 – 40 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.
Around noon we will take a break with some good and warm ecological food so that our bodies will get some nourishment too.
Then we’ll start to work on the drum frame which is pre-made by me (Peter). 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. This will most likely be all that we will do on this first day.
The second day will be very special too. We will combine the hide and the frame to a unit of deep, strong and lasting connection. This will be like a wedding, where two spirits unite to become one. Again, we will take all the time that it needs to give birth to a 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.
We have a variety of materials available for the drumstick and in order to give you the maximum opportunity to individualize, you will make your own drumstick at home, before we meet for the initiation ceremony.
The next time we meet, will be the following Friday afternoon, 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.
We will meet on Saturday, from 10:00 to ca. 18:00.
Then again on Sunday, from 10:00 to ca. 16:00.
Then on the following Friday from 16:00 to ca. 20:00 for the initiation ceremony.
As we will go with the flow and take care of each individual participant in the way they need it, I kindly ask you for some flexibility with respect to the time frame. It frequently happens, that we fully give in to the flow and we finish late in the evening.
