What is inside this Craft and Dedicate a Shamanic Frame Drum course:

  1. Introduction to your instructors and the way we will work together. Gathering the materials you will need to craft your shamanic frame drum.

  2. How to make the frame - crafting strong bones. We make and offer dedication to our wooden frame

  3. How to listen to the Song of the drum - celebrating the skin and its unique spirit. It is important to honour with spirit of the animal.

  4. Discover how to work with the dream of the drum - spirit lives and breathes - adding the flesh of the drum. Soaking and celebrating how our sacred drum is coming together.

  5. How to create the essential elemental connection with your drum. Weaving the rope to see your drum emerging.

  6. Discover how to listen to the heartbeat of your drum. How to offer thanks and receive some introductory drum beats to work with.

By employing the drum in the ways you will be shown, you will have an opportunity to experience shamanic states, mindfulness, and personal healing. These ways do not require faith or changes in your definition of reality. No change in your subconscious mind is needed either, for the drum only awakens what is already there. It will stimulate the shaman that lies dormant within you.

The shaman seeks harmony with nature, this is wonderful for stress management in our crazy lives today. The drum serves as an instrument of attunement bringing harmony and happiness into the core of your being. Together we celebrate both crafting and dedicating our sacred frame drum.

There is a great renewal of interest in the practice of shamanism. The freedom and individuality of the shamanic experience in liberating and personal transformation unfold with grace and ease. No intermediary such as a priest or the church is needed to access spiritual experience and personal revelation. All dimensions of reality, the powers and mystical knowledge they contain are available to those who seek out and discover the unique practices of shamanism. Every shamanic practitioner becomes his or her teacher, priest, and prophet. Shamanic practise brings us ultimate power over our own life and the ability to assist others to do the same.

We intend to teach you through working deeply with your drum how to renew and maintain harmony with your families, communities, nations, and Earth herself. Together we shall restore a sense of sacred to the world, of the divinity present in nature and all living things. The drum is a beautiful tool to work with as sacred drumming awakens the inner shaman and mindfulness. Making your drum helps align you with all of creation.

A quick update: the subtitles (not saying they will be perfect.... but better than the automated ones!) have been updated. Remember I use a different version of English - honour not honour etc. Plus the 'squelch' that hurt our ears with the drumming has been fixed - thank you Pedro). If you are loving the course please let us know via a review. There are so many courses on Udemy these days and reviews are the only way we can stand out.

“When you pray with that drum when the spirits hear that drum, it echoes. They hear this drum, and they hear your voice loud and clear.” Wallace Black Elk

An interesting fact about drumming: When Rome adopted Christianity around 200AD it was made an act of heresy to play the frame drum, such was it’s power of collective and personal transformation. As a traditional women’s sacred instrument, it was the main instrument used consistently in ritual, celebration, healing and shamanic journeying for thousands of years. Thus the church moved to crush and control women.

"SONG OF THE DRUM My drum has many voices. My drum tells many stories. This drum is full of mystery. This drum is full of dreams. Listen to the drumbeat. Listen to the heartbeat. Now you hear the hoofbeat. Now you hear the wing beat. All are One." Cherokee

Certification and Accreditation: Some instructors offer “accreditation” via external official-sounding bodies. The majority of these are fake. We call them Certificate Mills. The only thing the “Mill” wishes to see from the instructor is money (ranging from $40 - $1500 per course depending on the Mill) to pay for the process. They do not even wish to see 1 minute of any course nor any qualification an instructor may hold. You; the student is then sent to these places to pay them (more) money as the student. They commonly offer public liability insurance that you can get WITHOUT them and the fake fancy-looking Diploma.

As you know Udemy offers you a certificate of completion at the end of this course. However, I am happy to offer you a certificate of completion for any course of mine that you complete. Please ONLY message me through Udemy when you have completed the course. Note - I will not answer any requests for this outside of Udemy as I need to verify that you have completed the course!
