10:00am - 5:00pm
The drum is the heartbeat of Mother Earth, a sacred instrument that connects us to the love in our heart.
In this workshop we will come together in ceremony to create our own personal drum. We will be crafting and hand painting 15” drums, using hard wood and buffalo skin. The creation of the drum is a ritual done in prayer. Creating your own drum is a beautiful and powerful process that works in connection with our heart. Birthing your own instrument is a deep and sacred, our thoughts and intentions will be elevated and will remain in high vibration as we create the drums and through that process they become part of the drums.
The beat of the drum has the power to change natural elements, including the weather. It is believed to have the power to heal sickness, and some believe it has the power to send messages both to the animal world and to the spirit world. The drum is considered to be the first musical instrument used by humans and has been utilized by virtually every culture known to mankind for a multitude of purposes.
We live the first nine months of our life in the womb of our mother listening to her heartbeat which sets the pattern of our existence, the beat of the drum reminds us of this beautiful beat of life.
The workshop and prayers will led by David Gutierrez, Spiritual leader, Water Pourer, Sun Dancer and Medicine Man from Mexico, descendant of the Teocali Quetzatcoatl Family. David has been in the Red Road for 13 years, learning with elders and perfecting his craftsmanship as a Native American Artisan. David leads the ceremony in the company of his partner, Alejandra Rodas, Moon Dancer, Sun Dancer, Vision Quester FSI, Reiki Master and Intuitive healer.
This activity will be held outdoors. The day will begin with a short heart opening Yoga practice led by Shayne Cohen. Lunch will be served. Please bring your own yoga mat and water bottle to be refilled. #noplastic
