DRUM MAKING: SACRED PLAYSHOP
Create an Instrument Ally with Your Own Hands & Heart
Join us as we are guided by master drum-maker Miguel Medina to create our own ceremonial frame drums. Working in sacred space, participants will journey for their drum spirit ally, then design and create their finished tool all in one day!
Master Teacher Miguel Medina
Teacher Miguel Medina has been an artist, craftsman and musician since childhood. Miguel’s life is strongly guided by his Universal spiritual beliefs. His path has led him to become involved in Native American ceremonies, including Anishinabe sweat lodges and Sundances. Miguel is on the Elders’ Council for the Turtle Mountain Thunder Bird Lodge community. He carries, leads and sings on the “big drum” as well as helping to lead and facilitate events and ceremonies within that community.
Medina’s passion for art, music and spirituality intersect in his business, Singingtree Flutes. For 17 years he has been crafting Native American style flutes, which have earned him international recognition and acclaim. Miguel has also been making ceremonial drums for twelve years, as well as crafting other tools used in Native American ceremonies such as pipes and eagle bone whistles.
Drum Making: A Special Opportunity
This is a special opportunity to work in ceremony in a small group with Miguel. Drum awakening sweat lodge ceremony will be held after drums have cured – also included in tuition. Directions will be sent in advance to all registrants.
Join our ceremonial drum making and create a dynamic path to wholeness, supported by community!
