What People Say
“I’ve been waiting for the right person to build my drum with. This has been a very real, very big journey and the finished article is just a small part of what I’m taking away with me and I am very very happy”
“The symbolism of each element in my drum is so rich with meaning and depth for me.
I have found and now know my sacred inner sound -
I’m feeling so grateful ”
“From start to finish it was a beautiful journey for me.
I was surprised how small tasks became big metaphors for my life.
This was so much fun - WOW!”
“I feel enriched by the whole process in so many ways.
This experience has given me much deeper meaning than just building a drum and I can’t wait to play!”
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
