“May every woman walk into the New World carrying her own drum.”
The quote above is from a vision Starfeather had regarding her life work and personal goals. Drum making in ceremony has been a calling for her from the beginning of her spirit work as a Teacher/Healer/Medicine Woman. Always encouraging women to make their own drums, Starfeather created a special workshop and ceremony to share this knowledge and craft. Since the early 1990’s, she has helped hundreds of people birth their own special drum.
Women have always been drummers. Throughout history there are recordings of women using hand-drums in ceremony, healing rituals and celebrations of life and death. Drum rhythm unites us in non-verbal communication, connecting us to Mother Earth and the Ancestors. (“When the Drummers Were Women” by Layne Redmond https://layneredmond.com/When_the_Drummers_Were_Women.html)
Starfeather and Woman Soul are offering the opportunity for women attending the 2018 Woman Soul Gathering to make and bring their own drums. We will also have the big Mother Drums to gather around and drum and sing together. You will be able to join on the Mother Drum and/or play your new drum and join together as individuals in a united voice of song and rhythm. A powerful experience to be sure.
