Drum making is a prayer. With this in mind, and utilizing teachings from the Medicine Wheel, you will make your own hoop drum. We give gratitude to the Spirit of the Four-Leggeds, thanking them for giving their lives in providing the hides; to the Spirit of the Tree Nation, thanking them for their sacrifice in providing the hoops; and to the Spirit of the drum, as a gift for healing the people. 

The use of drums is a sacred practice and one that can bring you closer to the magic that is Spirit. Allow yourself to open to the infinite possibilities of healing with the beat of a Native American-style hoop drum. 

The use of drums in ritual and healing is a well-known tradition. Drumming is a technique used to alter the state of mind and reach deep states of consciousness. Every cell of our bodies listens to the drumbeat. Scientific evidence exists showing the increase of cellular immune components associated with drumming. Drumming enhances relaxation and theta-wave production producing pleasure, enhanced awareness, and release of emotional trauma. The drumbeat is likened to the heartbeat of the earth, and the beat of our mother’s heart as heard from within the womb.

I love the drums. You are awesome. I will keep in touch and get more drums through you. When I find a resource that I like I use it. Thank you so very much....

I was just thinking about you and my drum today — how much of an important part of my life it has become. I meditate with it most mornings and also drum a little when I meet frustrations. Just can’t imagine my life without it.
