“Sacred Drum aligns me with the heart beat of the Earth expanding and taking me deep inside to experience my true worth. Connecting my awareness consciously with the Source of all Creation, creates a feeling within and without of peace, bliss and jubilation.”
My Workshops are based on Native American/Shamanic practices. The Drum and the Didgeridoo are the oldest instruments known to humanity which assist you to enter Dreaming consciously, quickly and safely. In Aboriginal Culture the playing of the Didgeridoo is “men’s business” and out of my respect for that culture I never have or will put one to my lips, I do however use the Drum.
After the first session of drumming which usually lasts about 20 minutes, participants draw one image and formulate one question regarding what they have experienced. They then pair up (if numbers allow and if they wish to) and both hold one person’s image and question in their minds whilst I drum again. This is where “magic” truly occurs for both enter the same/similar dream and experience whatever is needed. After that drumming session we share what has occurred and participants then enter dreaming again holding the other person’s image and question in their minds. We then again share what has occurred.
To enter Dreaming consciously is a truly amazing experience and each participant receives whatever it is they need for them at that particular moment in their lives, whether that be re-connection to a part of Self that needs to be re-membered, realising their full connection to the natural world and all that exists, meeting with their Ancestors or Guides, or discovering and journeying with their totem or power animal/s. Like life, the possibilities of what can occur in this space are only limited to your own perception and beliefs.
After this part of the workshop is completed we then break for some healthy sustenance and re-group for the second part of the workshop which is where questions are asked, dreams are worked with, techniques taught for working with your dreams and a general sharing occurs.
Cost per person is $50 and in order to secure your place a non-refundable deposit of $10 is required at the time of booking. The balance is to be paid on the day, before we start.
It is suggested you do not consume alcohol or recreational drugs 24 hours prior and you only have a very light breakfast. Anyone who appears to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be permitted to participate.
You will need to bring writing and drawing materials but the other things listed here are optional, if you require a bit of comfort whilst you are dreaming, and if you have any queries please contact me:-
- something to lay on, like a yoga mat.
- something to cover your eyes with, if you need it.
- a light blanket.
- warm socks.
