Join Andrew and Monica of Drumming Sounds for an inspirational workshop on ancestral connection and transformation. This experience will enrich your drum circle facilitation skills, offering the opportunity to learn frame drum building for groups or individuals in your community. Participants will craft their own 14-inch elk hide frame drum and stick.

The workshop begins by establishing the fundamentals of ceremonial introduction, as outlined in Andrew's book "The Sacred Seven." We'll then delve into the process of drum birthing, a practice Andrew first started with the Havasupai Nation - the most remote Native American tribe in the continental United States, residing in the depths of the Grand Canyon. Since 2013, Andrew, and now alongside Monica, has guided hundreds in creating their own frame drums.

This workshop promises a profound journey into ceremonial practice, blending traditional wisdom with hands-on experience. Join us to deepen your connection to this ancient art.
