Drums are the heartbeat of Mother Earth. ​

Please be sure to wear your play clothes, since we will be staining the drum frames and there is water involved with stretching the hide. This is an all-day event. We take a one-hour lunch break and small breaks during the day. These drums have a nice, deep tone suitable for journeying, meditation, and fun at a drum circle. 

$100 Deposits are required one month before the workshop. There are no refunds. If you should need to cancel, you may apply your entire deposit to a drum created by Spirit Rising, or as a credit for other items that we sell.

The remaining balance is due at the workshop.

Deer - Opens the heart chakra. The gentle spirit of the deer teaches us to follow its example in unconditional love, kindness and trust.

Elk gives the stamina, endurance & ability to pace yourself as you go through the edges from the known to the unknown. The vibration of elk opens the third chakra, the solar plexus.

Moose is associated with self-esteem and trusting ourselves to act in the moment and to share our joy. The vibration of moose helps open the crown chakra to receive information from the divine, and to know when to share what with whom.

Buffalo is associated with Wisdom and Abundance. It's used when we seek wisdom and guidance from the Ancient Ones, drumming Buffalo opens the door to that vibration. Buffalo teaches us to honor the paths of all as we walk with Spirit.

Drum Come True

I have always dreamed of owning a drum, but never thought of making one for myself. Taking this workshop with Angela and Mike was an incredible experience for me. Before getting started they performed a clearing ceremony so that we could really connect with our drum. They were very organized and patient with each of us newbies. They explained everything in detail in the crafting and spiritual side of the drum. They played beautiful music while we were working. It was peaceful and relaxing as we were creating and connecting with our drum. Everyone in the class was a joy to meet. So friendly sharing stories of what brought them to the class. Afterwards we sat in a circle with our drums as Angela and Mike did a guided meditation. I felt so connected to my drum. It was mine and it spoke to me. My overall thought is just do it. Don't hesitate. This class/experience was worth every penny. And we couldn't have had better teachers. Love them both

Awe, thank you for your kind words! We're thrilled to have helped your a dream come true!

Alma Groome
Drum Workshop with Spirit Rising Florida

For a very long time I felt the call to build a spirit drum but the right opportunity had been elusive. That all changed when I received the email from Spirit Rising offering a day long workshop to build a 14" Deer drum. I paused for only a fraction of a second before hitting the purchase button, answering the call, and signing up. Anticipation built and built until July 2nd arrived and I drove to the workshop.

It was the most amazing experience possible. From the moment, I arrived and throughout the day, Mike and Angela were the most wonderful facilitators. They allowed the experience to unfold in a ceremonial way - guiding me to call in the my spirit and my heart to play with and layer in with the deer as the drum came to life. Their instructions were clear and they answered any and every question and need for assistance. When my drum decided she needed a little more attention through lacing and re-lacing, they were patient and kind.

If you feel the call to build your own drum, you don't need to look further than a workshop with these two beautiful human beings. You will leave with a gorgeous instrument connected to you in ways you cannot fathom having had an experience that will stay with you for quite some time.

OMG Alma, your review is so amazing and generous! I even have a couple tears in the corner of my eyes!!! I can't wait to share your review with Mike. He's not usually as emotional as I am, nor is he on his moon cycle, so he might not cry, but I know he will appreciate it too!!

Thank you so much!
