CONSCIOUS LIVING

SOUND MEDICINE is kind of our thing.
AND DRUMMING IS REALLY OUR THING.

If you've ever felt the pulsing power of live music, that sweet rhythmic sound you can't help but move your body and spirit to...you probably know why.

There's just something about it, isn't there? 
Something all at once wild, comforting, primordial, familiar...

CALLING US BACK TO THE FIRE, TO THE EARTH, TO WHOLENESS.

Like the beating heart, echoing and activating the same wisdom again and again, from within. 

Used as a tool of connection since times immemorial,

woven into our consciousness through the music, stories, and traditions of cultures world-wide,

serving both to ground us into the physical plane and transport us between realms...

THE MEDICINE DRUM

Over the years, we've seen the rise and fall of many trends, tools, and miracle remedies for just about every symptom and scenario life might throw at you...

 

But after working with countless clients in the field of spiritual and holistic wellness, we've found time and time again - the real medicine lies in the simple, empowering practices you can weave into your everyday life.

And there are few tools as naturally powerful and supportive as the drum when it comes to healing, whether you're looking to access altered states of consciousness or just unwinding after a full day.

AND NOT ALL OF IT'S MUSIC

THERE'S A LOT OF NOISE OUT THERE

ACCROSS EVERY CONTINENT WE'VE WALKED, THE DRUM IS THE LEGACY OUR ANCESTORS LEFT US

for GOOD reason

IT'S SIMPLE, IT'S RELIABLE, IT'S ACCESSIBLE - AND IT WORKS.

In fact, the drum is so instrumental to our wellbeing, 

as a species, we were making music well before the advent of agriculture!
 

So while drumming may not be an essential part of your daily life yet,

the science-backed truth is that sound healing is in our blood,

and has played a vital role in our collective evolution. 

Like the steady heartbeat we heard in our mother's womb,

the song of the drum guides us back to Source, helping us to restore balance, to rekindle our connection to the Mother, to the Earth,

and perhaps most importantly - to our purpose here. 

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE TO GEEK OUT ON THE FACTS

healing truths

HERE ARE A FEW 

YOU MAY NOT KNOW

1

Drumming synchronizes the frontal and lower parts of the brain, integrating nonverbal information and producing long lasting feelings of insight, inspiration, clarity, security, and conviction.

2

Drumming dramatically alters your brainwave patterns and emotional state, reducing stress in the body, and is a proven and highly effective healing therapy for those experiencing PTSD, depression, fearfulness, anxiety, and other symptoms of emotional trauma and distress to the nervous system.

3

Drumming can help repair and retrain the brain after neurological damage or impairment, generating new neural connections which support higher learning and cognitive function. 

and that's not all

THE DRUM ALSO HELPS US ACCESS AND UNLOCK STAGNANT ENERGY IN THE BODY,

encouraging healthy circulation and reducing inflammation,

AND IS A WONDERFUL TOOL TO SOOTHE A BUSY OR OVERACTIVE MIND,

making it especially helpful for those who struggle to settle down, stay focused,

or feel comfortable during meditation, self-reflection, or moments of stillness.

Played for nearly every purpose imaginable...

from entertainment and celebration, to processing grief and carrying our prayers across the enters, the voice of the drum is a profound guide and teacher, helping us nurture connection to not only the Self and one another, but to the vibration of our Ancestors, allowing us to access and emote our deepest feelings and collective memories.

HOW OFTEN DID THEY SING THEIR STORIES WITH THE DRUM?

How often did they pray for us? For the health and prosperity of their children?

And how today, may we honor them - not just the human lineage before us, but all our relations? 

We seek to nourish and uphold this unique and intimate form of Sound Medicine by honoring our original teachers and companions, the Plant and Animal Spirits, the way our Ancestors did - through music.

Fun Facts

We've been walking a shamanic path for over a decade, with the Medicine Drum playing a vital role in both our personal wellness and everyday family life, as well as our professional healing practice and community offerings. 

We began facilitating our signature Medicine Drum Making Ceremonies and Sound Healing courses in 2013, bringing our communities closer to natural, effective, and accessible options to support spiritual, emotional, and physical wellness. 

Over the years, we've shared the transformative gift of Sound Healing with beings of all walks, creeds, ages, and beliefs. From children, to barefoot festival folk, to the oh-so-serious suited-up business bosses, Sound Medicine is for everyone!
