The course fee is 9000 Norwegian kroner and includes accommodation, all meals, all materials, equipment and tuition.

The drum is the most ancient instrument dating back thousands of years and has been the working companion of shamans, ceremonialists, healers and mystics the world over. Whether it is ceremonial work, rituals, healing work, sacred dancing, or movement between realities and worlds, the drum can be an extremely powerful ally for you. When you make a mystical drum in the right ways, you are facilitating the birth of a truly sacred object.

This newly designed course guides you through processes for you to make your own deer skin shamanic drum and drum stick. The process is referred to as “Birthing” the drum, to acknowledge the shamanic principle that the drum is alive and sacred.

All materials and equipment is provided and included in the cost. Most of the materials are organic and locally sourced, including deer hide, wool and wood. Drum hoops are hand-made and deer skins are hand-prepared here on the farm. The red deer have been locally hunted by expert respectful people.

During the course we will engage in drumming, power dancing, ritual and deep ceremonial work, some of which is not available in any of our other courses. Once drums and sticks have been birthed, we will awaken these sacred power objects and complete our work with an empowerment ceremony.

The course is fully residential, so accommodation and all meals are included in the price.

The course is held in English.
