Root into the truth of your own beautiful soul
as the heartbeat of the earth supports you.
What is it?
A sacred journey guided by the beat of the drum.
Drum Doctoring is something I was first exposed to in 2004. One of my earliest mentors, Jeannette McCullough, led a program called Becoming the Medicine. It changed my life. It was the first time that I had experienced a Shamanic Journey and I remember every detail of it with such clarity. Over the years I have returned to this practice again and again. It resonated to the core of my soul. Every single journey was sacred and unique, every single one filled with messages and healing. As I began to write my book I knew I had to include them. Every chapter has one of these journeys written in it. My intention has been to offer a drum journey recording to accompany the book so that people can have their own unique experiences with this beautiful practice. I wasn't planning on doing anything else relating to this work, but Spirit had different plans. Jeannette passed away not long ago and shortly after her passing she came to me and asked me to carry on the drum. To carry forward her medicines...the medicines of the earth. The medicines of our ancestors.
I learned from Jeannette over time. I drummed in client sessions. I drummed for myself. I drummed for my baby boy when he was in my belly. Whenever I needed to connect, to clear energy, to remember who I was...I took out my beautiful drum and let the beat support me in returning to my soul.
Last year I learned of a mother in my community who took her own life. A 25 year old woman with a 6 year old daughter. My heart broke. I am so very familiar with the despair and hopelessness that precedes a choice like that, as far too many of us are. If you've experienced this and you're reading this, something brought you back. Some miracle. Some sparkle of hope. Love. I cannot understand the soul contracts or reasons for the path of others, but I wish something had been there to bring that sweet mama back. As my heart filled with love and compassion for her, my prayers and thoughts went to her family. I sat with it all and I felt Jeannette come to me again and tell me that the beat of the drum has the power to help us return to soul. To return to the truth of who we are. To align with our purpose. To realize our medicines. To step into our power and heal ourselves and the earth.
What is required to participate?
An open heart.
What to expect?
Drum Doctoring is done in a very specific way. There are certain beats that guide you in journeying and the speed and strength of those beats shift at different times, depending on where you are in the journey. My job is to be a guide for you, through the drum. I will be there to support you and hold sacred space as you embark on your unique journey to retrieve the messages, gifts and information that is waiting for you.
We will be very specific with our intentions when journeying. Before we begin I will explain it all in detail so that you know what to expect.
During your journey you may choose to sit or lay down. It's important to be in a quiet and peaceful place where you will be uninterrupted for the entire time we are together. You cannot participate while driving or doing other work. I'm offering this online but your full presence is essential.
