This is class for women to learn basic technique of hand drums with a focus on the frame drum, a drum dating back to the beginning of shamanism dating back 100,000 years, reviving the BC era when women were drummers and the frame drum was used in ancient ceremony. Participants will learn ceremonial drumming and chanting of native and indigenous tribes around the world. Vocalization / singing and movement is involved. This is a safe space where women may explore ancient trance meditation to manifest healing and blessing in our lives and the lives of others.
