Workshop Description:

The frame drum is a powerful trance-inducing instrument played for thousands of years by priestesses and women worldwide. A celebration of the feminine force, drumming is a devotional practice and ancient technology for directly attuning the bodymind connection and generating psychosomatic healing.

In this intensive, we will dive into:

  • Frame drum technique and classical middle eastern rhythms
  • Embodiment practices
  • Free-form ecstatic movement
  • Opening the poetics of the voice
  • Sacred Ritual and Ceremony 

This unique mind-body-spirit enhancing workshop ignites life-force energy and awakens creative expression in an activated temple space. Come explore the primordial pulse of Creation!
