If you wish to study this as part of our Diplomas, you are advised to complete Sound Therapy Level 1 first although this is not absolutely essential.  This training is suitable for anyone with a calling to discover more about working with the sacred drum for healing mind body and spirit. 

Equipment Needed:

Your own frame drum (medicine or shaman drum) of any size is recommended for this training.
We will have a small number of drums available for use on the day, so if you don’t yet have your drum you can still complete this training successfully.

As some of the drumming and energy work is conducted in a sacred grove in the nearby forest you will need to bring suitable outdoor clothes and shoes along with a warm rain jacket just in case.  A sleeping bag is ideal for the forest drumming work.
