Drums have a rich history of use during shamanic journey work, sound/vibration healing, dance medicine, trance states, rites of passage, and for ceremonial use of all kinds. The history of the Red Drum Carriers begins with a dear friend, priestess, and shaman, Nikiah Seeds of Red Moon Pathways during her shamanic medicine reclamation and training. When creating her own drum, she journeyed for information and saw everything cloaked in red. Over the years she dove further into women's healing work, co-authored a book on menstrual wisdom, and found a long established connection between women and the colour red. Nikiah birthed a large community of red drum carriers and has established a team of Red Drum Leaders to bring this medicine way into even more hands.
I am blessed and very pleased to be one such Red Drum Leader offering this reclamation opportunity to those who identify as women - right here in Edmonton!
The colour red represents the blood that we as womb holders have within us, and this is our birthright as a woman! The red blood that we hold within our bodies that enables us to give birth to new life, is the same blood that cycles us into our wisdom time, and connects us to each other as blood sisters!
This is why we carry the red drum, to reclaim our ancient connection to the pulse of the great mother and remember who we are as womb space holders.
From our first menstrual blood to birth and finally death the colour red is associated with women. Even in death, in ancient times when a body was laid out it was always smeared with red ochre representing the fact that the body was now going back to the great mother, another birth in the great cycle of life, death and re-birth. It is these cycles that we as women move through as we mark our passages of time, and it is with the sacred medicine of the red drum that we finally begin to re-claim some of this birth rite for ourselves.
Birthing of a Red Drum can commence with the start of a young woman's menstrual cycle where she can participate in a 2 day ceremony creating her very own Red Drum. This drum can be used in may ways for her, eventually even as part of birthing her own child.
It is never too late to birth your own Red Drum, perhaps as you prepare for motherhood, prepare for menopause and/or to simply to reclaim your birth rite and to come back to a deeper connection to the Great Mother.
Wouldn't it be amazing to have your own personalized Red Drum to take you through your life journey right up to our final transition in this physical world!
For a free consultation or to book a one on one Red Drum Ceremony for yourself or for your daughter, please send me an email.
The ceremony consists of creating your own Red Drum (Gratitude, dying the hide, creating/lacing your drum and on day 2 hearing her voice and connecting it with you or your daughter personally)
I would be honoured to share this beautiful experience and rite of passage with you.
2 - 3 Day workshops also available for sisters wanting to join together.
Cost depends on the size of drum you wish to make.
In the new year there will also be full moon Red Drum Meditations. Check back for dates.
Feb 2 - 23 or Feb 4 - 25
Stop and think for a moment about what you learned on how to cope with emotionally painful events when you were a child. The chances are that your parents gave you a list of logical sounding reasons why you should not feel sad. Did any of those reasons honestly make you feel any better? Probably not! The problem is that grief is emotional, not logical.
More likely than not, you simply learned to hide those painful feelings deep inside, rather than express them, because no matter what anyone said, you never really felt any better! This is not because your parents or elders were trying to pass on misinformation to you. They were simply passing on to you the same things they were told as children! Up until now, there was really no useful information that parents could learn on how to effectively help their children successfully deal with the pain of a broken heart!
The creation of the Helping Children With Loss Program, by the Grief Recovery Institute, has changed that. Now you can learn tools that will not only help them today, but for the rest of their lives as well. They will also have to proper tools to cope with whatever grief may impact their lives and later to pass on to their children as well. Your participation in this program can make a real difference for generations to come!
This program is not only designed to help parents, but teachers, school counselors and everyone else who has contact with children. These skills can be of enormous value no matter what loss a child has experienced, including, but not limited to the loss a parent, grandparent, sibling, a divorce in the family, or even the loss of a pet.
Done via Zoom.
