  • Practice self-healing methods and intuitive strategies for the transmission of Reiki

  • Integrate Shamanic techniques to access alternate realities beyond time and space

  • Give and receive a complete Shamanic Reiki session

  • Activate our ability to transmit healing forces across time and space

  • Increase the potency of the energy we channel and receive and give a Shamanic Reiki treatment

This workshop is a deep exploration of our place on Earth as beings with both past life and ancestral lineages. Shamanic traditions gift us with tools and teachings to reawaken us to spirit so that we can explore and bring healing to our soul and our ancestors.

In this workshop you will:

Journey to your soul’s past lives to discover who you are as a soul.

  • The past lives of our soul are an integral part of who and what we are endeavoring to do in our current incarnation.


Journey to your Ancestral lineages to honor the rivers of your:

  • Mother’s Mother

  • Mother’s Father

  • Father’s Mother

  • Father’s Father


In these ancestral journeys you will:

  • Connect and honor their presence and influence in your life.

  • Seek to bring healing to each of the rivers to get beyond the Ancestral wounds that block the healhy flow to the Descendants.

  • Ask their help to remember and give birth to the unique genius that you bring to the world.

  • Ask them to help you to remember the agreements your soul made to the ancestors for you to become the spirit that you are.


Journey to yourself when you were in your Mother’s womb to:

  • The first time your soul came to visit the body that mother earth and the Ancestors were preparing to receive your Soul.

  • Explore the covenant between the Soul and your Ancestors for your birth.


From the Soul lineage and the four rivers of Ancestral lineage, we receive sets of physical and spiritual “DNA.” To live a balanced life on Earth and achieve our purpose, we must honor, and gain assistance from both our Soul and Ancestral lineages, for we exist as the intersection of the two.

For far too long in the west, we have ignored the voices of our Ancestors. They are calling out to us to listen so that we can start the healing that is so urgently needed—in ourselves, in our families and in our world. To continue to grow in life, it is important that we honor our guides in spirit, but also to reclaim and pay honor to our Ancestors, without whom we would not be here. Just as there are four directions and four colors in the medicine wheel, we also have four ancestral rivers that feed our being. We need all the medicines to flow in balance from the Directions, the Colors, and the Ancestors.



*SCHEDULE: Friday 7PM-10PM / Saturday 10AM-1PM & 3-6PM / Sunday 10AM-1PM & 3-5PM

TRAVEL DETAILS: If you are flying in, please arrive at SeaTac airport. Rent a car or reserve a seat on the ‘Rocket Shuttle’ from SeaTac to Port Townsend, WA. The workshop will be held at the home of Llyn Cedar Roberts in the North Beach area. Rob will put you in touch with each other in case you want to share rides and/or lodging. We ask that you carpool to the workshop site (we’ll give you directions when fully registered) in 4 cars maximum. We look forward to sharing this profound experience with you!

Spirit of the Drum -- A Two Day Drum-Making Workshop

(drum materials sold separately, see below)

Join us on Indigenous Peoples Weekend to connect with the Ancestors and Dream your Spirit Drum into Being.

Boom-boom — the steady drumbeat of our mother’s heart soothing and anchoring us in her womb is the first musical sound that our ears perceive, keeping us grounded on our journey to birth.

Our first musical instrument was the drum, discovered by beating a stick on a hollow log or some other hollow surface. The beat of the drum naturally compels our bodies to want to move, almost involuntarily - like breathing.

The shaman/spirit/medicine drum is used universally and is prevalent among many original peoples as a living and conscious tool to bridge into expanded reality. It is used widely among Siberian shamans, where the word shaman was conceived. Here in North America, the drum has always been a sacred instrument in their communication with Spirit. Even in Europe, history reaches far beyond the advent of Christianity that included drumming in sacred ceremony.

In this workshop, you will:

• Journey to meet the Spirit of the Tree that gifted you the wood for your drum frame that will become the drum’s body.

• Journey to meet the Spirit of the Four-legged who gifted the hide that will be the flesh of your drum.

• Learn a unique spiral lacing technique as taught in the Saghic tradition [a re-dreamed Celtic tradition].

• Engage in sacred ceremony to breathe life into your using the four elements.
• Create an intimate bond between you and your drum’s living nature.

• Learn to work with the drum as a conversational aid with your Guides and the Ancestors when you journey into the heart of your Spirit Drum.

• Learn to care for and "feed" your drum—this drum will be different than any other drum you will have and thus needs to be treated always in a sacred manner.

• Become aware of the Do’s and Don’ts of your drum.

• Bring a small empty spray bottle for water to keep drum skins moist, an old towel to use as your work surface, journal and pen, and a blind fold or mask if desired for use in journey work.

“The Spirit Drum is an external embodiment of our lives. It expresses our joy and sadness and is an implement of prayer. The drum is also the vessel that carries us on spiritual explorations and journeys. As such they tell the story of our relationship to the divine
and to those we call the Ancient Ones.” –

Native Elder
