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

When I was a young girl, I always had the feeling of being watched. I didn’t know who it was or what was happening, I just knew that I was not alone and that someone was in the room with me. I couldn’t see them, but I could feel the change in energy. The first

Eggs in Shamanic Healing

  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
