Make your own Shamanic Drum - workshop

  • Your Space 26 Prenzlauer Allee Berlin, Berlin, 10405 Germany (map)

The shaman's drum was traditionally called the shaman’s horse and used for ecstatic journeys and traveling between worlds. Nowadays shamanic drums are also used for playing music, healing and in drum circles where they provide connection with the great spirit. 

Shamanic drums are made with the intention to become powerful teachers, guides, healers and friends to those who use them. They are an important tool for exploration, spiritual growth and protection.

In a full day ceremony each participant will learn the art of drum making, build his or her own drum and use it in a guided closing session.


We will build a "Lakota" Native American shamanic drum (40 cm diameter), including a drumstick.

Workshop starts at 10:00 and finishes at 19:00.
Participation fee is 200€, basic food will be provided.
All necessary materials will be provided at the workshop.

Number of places is limited to 8 participants.
