Shamanic Journeying Using the drum or rattle to enter an altered state of consciousness, one "journeys" into non-ordinary reality to access spiritual advice and healing.  With this easily learned technique, one contacts animal allies and spirit guides who often become lifelong sources of power and inspiration.  These relationships open one up to extraordinary wisdom, insight and healing connected with the spirits of the earth and all her relations.  These "vision quest" are legendary and become the basis for acquiring individual and cultural wisdom. Shamanic Drum & Rattle Making Drumming/rattling resonates with our heart/soul beat.  Making your own healing/journeying instrument and awakening its healing energy is a powerful experience.  The ancients recognized the power of creating our instruments and infusing our heart/soul beat into them.  The frame drum uses wooden frames, cowhide and sinew.  The rattle is also made from cowhide and a handle you select.  Feathers, beads and other natural artifacts or totems can be added to the drum, rattle and beater.  Your imagination and intuition will guide you.
