Robert Melchioris, LMT MLST. Workshop Host Donald Bingham Schmitt
Come celebrate the cleansing, rebirth of SPRING !
“I am very excited to be hosting again this year a drum making class. Drumming is an integral part of a spiritual life. I made a drum many years ago and it has become the voice with which I speak energetically to the earth or shall I say with the earth. Spring is a time of rebirth, an opportunity for all of us to speak the truth with our drums. For sometime now the drums have been quiet, it is time for the drums to once again speak of peace and harmony. Make a difference in the world you inhabit.”
- Donald Bingham Schmitt
During this workshop, honor will be given to all who provide the raw materials for a drum. The “Sacred Four Legged” that provide the hide and the “StandingTall Ones” that offer wood for a hoop are recognized and brought forward in “Sacred Circle” as a part of the overall education process. You will participate in ancient traditional ceremonies during this event.
An altar will be established in the center of the working circle and each aspect of the drum’s birth will be recognized. The method taught uses the Medicine Wheel lacing of the Sioux nation to recognize the “Four Directions”, along with the Raven’s feet to celebrate the many songs that your drum will sing. Bringing a new voice to the world is a powerful thing. This is the perfect opportunity to enhance and explore your spirituality through Native American traditions.
All supplies will be provided for making your very own handcrafted drum. This is a full day workshop, approximately eight hours in length.
The workshop fee will be: $225.00
The workshop will take place in Cleveland Heights, Ohio

To maintain the intimacy of this special gathering, space is limited. To allow time to order supplies, registration and payment must be paid in advance.
Please respond if you are interested in participating. I want to determine a date in May that will work for all. This can be a life altering experience, my property was once inhabited by Native Americans. The energy is palpable. Please join me, Don
