Sacred Arts Research Foundation
107 Green St
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

The Sacred Arts Research Foundation and Golden Drum Community members have been cultivating their connection to sacred sound, chanting, mantra, folkloric and healing songs from around the world. Under the guidance and inspiration of Maestro Manuel Rufino, Taino Elder & world director of M.A.I.S.C, we have come together to create an educational platform for sacred songs to be learned.

Music is one of the deepest forms of prayer and healing that we carry with us throughout our lives. To learn, carry and sing a sacred song is an ability we all have, we simply need to tap into it. In our school, we invite you to tap into your own ability to use sacred song as a study, practice and way of prayer and expression. We will create an environment that promotes the development and learning of traditional sacred songs from all around the world. Each class will focus on a selection of songs, where we will learn the pronunciation, translation, and intention of the songs, as well as covering the melodic and rhythmic structure of singing the song.

Please bring a journal and pencil so that you may keep a record of the songs you learn. Bring a drum or rattle if you have one. All singing levels are welcome.

Please arrive 5 minutes early so we may start on time:)

Donations are welcome but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Heart of the Earth Drum Making Ceremony

Heart of the Earth Drum Making Ceremony

Aug 3, 10:00am - Aug 3, 7:00pm

Laurel Canyon, CA

HEART OF THE EARTH DRUM MAKING WORKSHOP

REGISTRATION CLOSES ON EVE OF WEDNESDAY, JULY 26th
It takes 6 days for the materials to ship to our location so please register by July 26th

with Shola, AJ, Brooke, & Matt
with natural plant dyes w/ special guest teacher Maria Calderon

15 Person Maximum

The drum is an ancient symbol and tool that has been used throughout the world as a means of connecting with a deeper presence of Spirit. The vibrations created by the alchemies of skin and wood reverberate a powerful medicine into the cosmos and can alter one’s consciousness in profound ways. In this workshop participants will create a beautiful hand drum and drum stick from natural materials provided by Mother Earth.

The drum is a sacred instrument that invokes the heart and speaks a universal language. Its rhythmic heartbeat is at the center of ceremonies held by people all over the world. The drum is used to communicate with the Spirit and to connect our hearts with the heartbeat of the Earth. It is a powerful medicine that heals the body, mind, and spirit.

Through the creation process, we bond with the medicine of the drum. As we infuse our energy and intentions into them, we become their caretakers. In the same way, the drums will become our teachers and our healers for as long as we walk with them on our spiritual path.

The creation of the drum is a prayer and a ceremony in itself. We will work with our drums as a visioning meditation for our lives and our paths, so that our thoughts and intentions remain in a high vibration as we create the drums and through that process they become part of the drums. Together we will birth our drums and offer gratitude to the spirits who made them possible. We will use a frame drum tying technique that we received from our community's spiritual leader and elder, Maestro Manuel Rufino.

**In this special class we will give our students the option of dying their hide in a variety of natural plant dyes with Maria Calderon. You do not need to dye your drum, but please do notify us if you would like to do this.

COST OF WORKSHOP
16" Drum is $275

Ceremonial artistry is an ancient and alchemical practice that integrates the mind, the body and the spirit.

Fan Making is an art form that takes a lot of time and dedication to complete. In this intensive 2 day course you will learn specific techniques that will enable you to create a unique and deeply personal fan for your walk in life. We will develop a sanctified environment that promotes the creation of a sacred tool, and this requires a high level of focus and prayer.
