I miss birthing shamanic drums

Apr 22nd, 2018 | By

One of the things I used to really love doing was to birth shamanic drums. There is nothing like the arrival of a new hide and drum frames, the connecting with the spirits of the animals and trees who have given their lives so that drums can be birthed. Sitting with these spirits, getting a

Eggs in Shamanic Healing

Nov 21st, 2017 | By

  I love the idea that something we use in our kitchens can also be a tool in our healing. I know this isn’t confined to shamanic work but sometimes the kitchen gets overlooked by those of use working shamanically. We often think of things in the garden, that which we find in nature such
