Drumbirth Ceremony (Ojai)


"The drum is our very ancient grandfather. It will guide us with its rhythm on the pilgrimage to the four cardinal points of the universe”. 
-Marakame Don Jose Luis Ramirez

Sunday April 29th
12:00PM to 7:00PM

In this workshop, we come together in a ceremony of creation overcoming many obstacles along the way.

We bond with the medicine of the drum, as we infuse our energy and intentions, becoming their caretakers. In the same way, the drums will become our teachers and our healers for as long as we walk with them on our spiritual path.

The one-sided "Shaman's Hand Drum" is constructed with Elk or Deer hides, Maple or Cedar Frames, and sinew. 

Each participant will paint their own frame and have the opportunity to learn traditional drum songs.

Together we will birth our drums and offer gratitude to the spirits who made them possible.

Investment: $220
A mandatory deposit of $150 is required to reserve your space and order materials two weeks before the workshop. 

What To Bring

Please bring with you a comfortable seating arrangement, (i.e. meditation cushion or backjack) as well as any paints you might prefer. Images of inspiration or sacred objects are also encouraged. Please also bring a vegetarian dish to be shared for lunch and dinner.
