Drum Making Ceremonial Workshop

“The drum is the Great Spirit’s favorite instrument. That is why we were all given a heartbeat.” ~Navajo Elder

Do you know the sound of your own heartbeat?
Are you open to listen?
Do you walk to the beat of your own drum or do you follow the crowd?
Is the drum calling you to take back your power and begin walking to the beat of your own drum?

The drum is a a tool for you to learn to listen to your own voice. Now, you can learn to make your own drum and begin your journey towards rhythm and grace. If you are being called to learn the traditional stories of the drum and to make your own drum, join us on March 12th and 13th......and awaken your drum to the sound of your voice.

Trina Hayes is a storyteller and healing drum teacher. She made her first drum almost eleven years ago after being diagnosed with a lump in her breast, which was her awakening to the need to go back to her roots and to become the ‘strong woman’ she knew she was intended to be. Allow her to guide you on your journey of healing and embracing your own voice.

March 12 & 13th  - 2-6pm
Cost: $170
Location: Church of Spiritual Light, 1939 Park Meadows Dr. #1, Fort Myers, Fl 33908
RSVP: Rev. Renee Bledsoe 239-560-6314
You must sign up as space is limited due to the highly sacred and personalized nature of this process.

February 2011: Heart & Soul

February is the month of love. Let us help you renew your romance for life. As we continue on our journey to the soul, how fitting it is that our first stop be at our heart. It might be said that the heart is the mouth of the soul and what we take into our hearts is what we believe. What we believe shapes our attitudes, behaviors, actions, all physical manifestations and ultimately our soul's destiny. This month we will be exploring ways to purify our hearts and what we take into them. Feeding our hearts and clearing our belief systems is how we regain a deeper connection to our soul and spirit. We want to let our soul take a new shape, released from any burdens of fear, lack, doubt and judgment. This month we will set our souls free to love and express ourselves in joy and be the cause of joy not only to ourselves, but to others, just by being our most authentic self... and sharing our soul.
