Sacred Drum-Making Workshops  



"A drum is the first thing you hear in the womb of your mother.  The heartbeat is a drum. We all come from one ancestral body"

— Dennis Miranda


All cultures and all peoples throughout the world use the sacred ancestral drum

Each drum has its own unique voice and vibration

The first stroke on the drum births all beings into existence

It is the sound of our mother

It brings our consciousness to the memory of birth

Drumming is the ancient way for connecting the heart and mind

It is the gateway to enter the deep realms of inner healing

The handheld drum is the oldest and most sacred instrument

By entering the deep heart of the world, we enter our own heart

We learn Compassion for all that is
