Sacred Drumming in 2022


Blog Posted: 10/01/2022
A Year On

A blog with many titles I am creating, and thats because much has happened since the last time I sat down to write.

In this time space, in this bardo, huge growth has happened, death of this body and being kept alive by an amazing team of women doctors and surgeons. Being loved and cared for by Renata, my family...

Walk this Earth in a Sacred Manner

Becoming a Sacred Drummer


Blog Posted: 02/05/2020
Walk this Earth in a Sacred Manner

Walk this Earth in a Sacred Manner . Inside all of us is a deep and fundamental yearning to belong, this longing and search has introduced me to the life of a Sacred Drummer. More importantly an opportunity to get to know through one of its founders, an ancestor called Nicholas Black Elk who gave us his vision of the Flowering Tree in his book Black Elk Speaks. He was a Native American back in the 1800‘s, for me the study of th...

Ally Gerrish's Sacred Drumming Review

Review of the Sacred Drumming Course


Blog Posted: 18/03/2020
Black Elk,Renata Ash,Steven Ash,Drumming,Sacred Drumming

Sacred Drumming is a healing modality rooted within the living traditions of the Lakota people, as shared by Black Elk an Oglala Lakota medicine man. Love of The Earth is central to all Shamanic practises. ‘’In conclusion, our survival is dependent on the realisation that Mother Earth is a truly holy being, that all things in this world are holy and must not be violated, and that we must share and be generous with one another ...

Jean Hammond's Sacred Drumming Review

Review of the Sacred Drumming Course


Blog Posted: 18/03/2020
Black Elk,Renata Ash,Steven Ash,Drumming,Sacred Drumming

I remember the thrill of excitement as I approached the yurt at Kingfisher Cottage, it was a setting I had longed for and set the beginning to such a profound transformation of my life. A Woodland walk took me past some logs piled up as I saw a man pushing a wheel barrow.  Initially I thought he was some Woodland Wizard, it was Steven the teacher.  The welcome for me was the most oddest I have ever experienced as it was...

Touching the five senses in the medicine wheel

Historically and practically there is a direct link between each of the five senses and the sacred directions of the medicine wheel. I have been exploring these connections in my daily meditations using my drum and found them to be very powerful. In a somewhat poetic form I have written down the method I am using which is based upon an ancient meditation system from India, blended with medicine wheel teachings from a variety of world cultures. ...

The Sacred Drum is Calling

Blog Posted: 13/02/2019
Black Elk,Renata Ash,Steven Ash,Drumming,Sacred Drumming

There is a sacred drum beating in our hearts, its soft rhythm spreading blood, food and Qi life force through our bodies. Up to the top of the head and down to the soles of the feet this steady beat drums into the Mother Earth as a gentle returning gift from us to her. So little do we remember who we are and how powerful we can become. With shoes off, bare foot, gently walking on the Mother we can draw the Energy of the Sky Father down through...

Spring Imbolc Drumming Ceremony

Five in the evening and its still light, the season is turning into spring. You can feel it in the trees with their buds beginning to shine hazy pink with violet tips. Give the house a good spring clean, wash the floors, eject all that you don’t need from you that represents your body and soul as your home. When you have finished cleaning, smudge and open the windows, let this fresh spring air from the north east cleanse the rooms and ...

Ceremony

Sacred Ceremony


Blog Posted: 21/11/2018

Ceremony is an essential part of our Sacred Drumming practice. The ceremonial ritual brings each person in the circle into alignment with their higher Self with a capital "S”. Each individual is coming from their own world and needs to enter a space of non judgement and surrender, self importance, ego and judgement are left in the past, are left outside the circle. In ceremony we are all equal, and in Sacred Drumming, like the drum form w...

Honouring Song

Ceremony begins with Smudging


Blog Posted: 19/11/2018

In many traditions an honouring song is shared between people. It brings us all together, we can share with each other respect and even if we are in new company, a strong feeling is generated of giving and receiving from the heart. An honouring song has to be simple and immediately singable so that we all can take part, it has to have a purpose and universal meaning.  We use an ancient honouring song that surfaced during the first module ...

The healing power of many drummers

Drum is a wonderful instrument for sending focused healing to others. It keeps you in time with the Now, keeping you in focus. It’s the combination of your body moving, the visual gentle repetition and the sound of the heart beat, plus a humming resonance within the drum that changes, weaves and carries that something, that energy of love that is within you and me. The heart beat on drum brings it forth, it brings the hearts love out in ...

Singing Your Song

Why are we singing our song?


Blog Posted: 15/04/2018

Simon Heather at the College of Sound Healing asked for some personal quotes of why singing is important to each of us. Wow, thats a big one for me as I expect it is for you. There are so many quotes from great singers, writers and philosophers, and it is so easy to crib a quote, feel good because you have done something, written it down for others to see. But who reads it? I’m the one who writes this and probably I will be the one to re...
