Hoppi is a medicine woman, sound healer and carrier of many sacred songs for ceremony, prayer and healing . During this weekend you'll be taken on a deep inner journey, not only to create your own drum, but also to discover the power of your voice to express an honouring of the sacred, invoke healing and returning to wholeness. This journey is profound. You'll learn how to work with your drum, how to "travel", how to invoke different shamanic rhythms, how to experiment with vocal toning techniques as well as learn healing songs to work with beyond the course. You'll be guided to meet the spirit of your drum and will be taught the art of effective intention and prayer setting with your drum
