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!

Magical Experience!

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!

We're so glad that you enjoyed the experience!

Beautiful day creating my drum

I really and truly enjoyed the creation of my drum. I’ll be making more with them in the future!

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!
