Sprit Rising Florida, LLC
Spirit Rising's mission is to help people step into an authentic connection with Spirit (God/Creator/Universe/etc.) We do that by providing unique workshops & products at affordable prices.
I recently had the pleasure of participating in the birthing of my own 16” deer skin medicine drum and I’d like to share that every dollar I spent on this incredible product, the ceremony around the entire process, and the expertise of the facilitators is what made this experience valuable. I’ve shopped & even purchased a drum online at the same cost of the balance due - without the connection to what I was creating and integrating into my own practice. So let’s think of it this way, your deposit is for the experience and the expertise and the community - and your balance due is for the care and craftsmanship of preserving and preparing not just the hide, but the maple frame for your creation.
This workshop is worth the value and an experience to not take lightly. If you just want a drum, go buy a drum - if you want a drum you are connected to energetically and that holds that sacredness still from the animal, do this workshop.

Yerba Mate is the perfect morning energy booster and tastes great with just a splash of honey. It’s my go to for a great morning pick-me-up!
Thank you for bringing this amazing gift to our space for all to enjoy! The energy that both of you provided during the drum birthing experience could be felt deep in my being! I would love to experience this again.
I can't say enough how happy I am to have taken your Drum Workshop. It was fun, engaging and I enjoyed the day with wonderful people. The hardest part of the entire process is waiting the full time for the drum to dry. I must say when it did, I was extremely happy with the sound it made. All the guidance given in your workshop paid off. I plan to use the sound for myself and others healing. I will forever be grateful that you came to our area to share this special workshop and for our local Tree House community for hosting such an event. I highly recommend this workshop to everyone.

This was such a wonderful event. Mike and Angela made this event sacred yet approachable. I highly recommend!
Enjoyed this very much. So glad I was able to participate with these amazing people!!!
Angela and Mike were the most patient, gentle guides in birthing my first drum. I highly recommend them as guides whether it's your first time or your a seasoned builder. They made the experience fun, intimate, and absolutely magical!
In this space of deep introspection and anchoring into all that is within me to express, Angela and Mike held the perfect space for us. Our session absolutely magical as we all learned about this ancient process and ourselves. As this is my second drum baby, i appreciate how I tune with Spirit they are and how this connection supported/s my connection and journey as well!
I really and truly enjoyed the creation of my drum. I’ll be making more with them in the future!
To date the Drum Birthing workshop that Angela and Mike host is my favorite healing ceremony of all time! They give so much of their time and attention to each individual. The ceremony and care they share is pure medicine! Each time I play my drum I think of them and the magic they are creating in this world. Thank you!
Whippoorwill Farms in its self is an amazing place. Not only is it an eco-friendly farm, but the events they hold at their place are great.
The Spirit Drum making workshop was totally exciting, fun, informative and would sign up for it again if Angela and Michael from Spirit Rising come back to Whippoorwill Farms.
The workshop was laid back and at the end very rewarding when your medicine drum was completed.
Angela and Mike you bring so much good energy to the drum workshop. Helping me and the other particpants create our own medicine through these drums is pure love energy. Thank you for creating this space for us.
From the moment Mike & Angela arrived to set up, ceremony began. They are two of the kindest, most genuine people I know and they didn't seem to mind my constant questions. Inside, I'm an eight-year-old who wants to know everything about everything. I was honored to take photos of the whole process and even more honored when Angela picked up my camera and took some candid shots of me, hard at work. Their instructions were clear and either or both of them was ready to step in to help if one part seemed to difficult. They were mindful to allow each workshop attendee to have complete autonomy and create the drums by ourselves, so that when we finished we had true works of art to help us on our personal spiritual path. I play my Buffalo Drum every day and it helps me connect with the animal spirit as well as the Great Spirit who dwells within each of us. At the end of the day, each drum builder was given a beautiful tote to carry and protect our drums, the drumsticks we'd made, a tub of Shea butter, and a set of instructions for caring for our drums. I highly recommend this workshop for anyone wishing to own a frame drum because building your own is much different from simply buying a drum that was created by someone else.
