Build your own shamanic drum
A magical friend for life.
Building your own shamanic drum is a true feast! It is the birth of your drum, the union between your energy, the cosmic energy and the earth energy.
Invite the spirits, sand & oil the wooden frame, soak the skin and build your own shamanic drum. At the end of the day you have a new magical friend to take home with you and to enjoy.
Your guide on this journey: Joost Kuijpers
Joost Kuijpers works as a neighborhood connector in Rotterdam and is a shamanic healer in the tradition of the Susquehannock. He discovered the power, the help, the magic of Drum and its enormous potential and would like to pass on this knowledge. His motto: “Be (yourself)”, and Drum can help you with that!
We start with an introduction between you and the materials, the initiation of your drum and introduction to the Spirit of drum. Furthermore, a short explanation about how the drum can help you, but also how you and the drum can help others.
