When we look at all the Cultures of the World, we all have a Drum, Dance, and Song. In Shamanic Traditions the Drum and Rattle is the most Sacred and wide used with Medicine People/Shamans. It is our access point to the World of our True Self/Soul, Spirit, The Cosmos or Shamanic Worlds, and Our Heartbeat.
In Shamanic Traditions World Wide the drum and rattle are the first sounds of Creation and our Heart Beat. Think about when you where born what was the first sound you heard, Your Mother's Heart Beat? Just hearing the sound of the drum provides healing to our Mind, Body, and Spirit.
Bruce Whitewolf & Jennifer Jaguar Moon have guided many people into the Healing Drum Journey.
"With working with the drum, it teaches us stillness, control, and about our own life. The drum is a Circle and so we also live in a Circle!"
Flow of our Gathering
We start our day honoring the Animals and Trees that we use to make our drums by going on a Shamanic Journey to these Animals, Trees, and Our Self. Then we work together as one collective making our drums and are guided by Bruce Whitewolf and Jennifer Jaguar Moon as they share wisdom and guide us into our own life while making our drum.
After Drum making we share a Community Talking Circle and Ceremony followed by a Community Potluck. This is a great way to get to know your Helping Spirits, Your Community, build a deeper connection with Yourself, and honor your heart.
Everyone can make a drum from young to old. We just have to slow down and go within to master this craft!

How to Choose a Drum
We work with 7 different types of hides Deer, Buffalo, Elk, Moose, Horse, Cow, and sometimes Bear. In Native American and Shamanic Traditions these Animals are our Brothers and Sisters and we Respect the trees and animals that give their life for our drums and hold a speical ceremony for them. Also in many traditions all parts of the Animals are used. For more info about this please contact us, we are happy to answer any questions.
Sound of Drums...
All of our Drums have a great sound and we usually guide people into making 15 and 18 inch drums. We can get smaller and larger and we also work with Elders and Teachers that are from Siberia and make Pow Wow Drums too.
Think this way when choosing your drum, the Thicker the Hide the Deeper The Sound and the bigger the Animal. Deer is a nice drum but a smaller animal and thinner hide. Also the size of the drum of corse makes a diffrence. But a 15 inch Buffalo Drum will sound Deeper then a 18 inch Deer.
You might also have a Spiritual Connect to one of these Animals. From working with Tradition people each person will have thier own understanding of their Power Animal or Guide. Two Shamans may work with a Horse but work with the energy in diffrent ways. For more info about this please contact us. Below we have included some basics about each animal but we can guide you to the right choice for you by talking with us and will be glade to do so.
Cow- connects us to Mother Gaia, Fertility, Birth, Nurturing Energy
Buffalo- Connection to White Buffalo Calf Woman and our Ancestors, abundance, prayer, walking a sacred way, harmony, strength
Horse- The Power to change anything, freedom, understanding, family, awareness, and responsibility
Moose- Stop listening to others and make your own choices, strength within ones self
Elk- community, long and stedy helps you reach your goals, empowerment
Deer- love, understanding, slowing down before we move, and go easy on ones self and others
Bear- being strong and saying no when you have to, confidence, patience, and authority, connection to the dream world
