A self-made shaman drum to help you step into power?
The times are now to listen to our calling - can you feel it?
A FreeYourself shaman drum is an not only an instrument, the retreat is a whole proces that brings you more in touch with what you can bring to the world with your new drum.
It's an amazing tool for personal growth, prayers, healing, finding power & peace inside - off course also for music, for gathering in groups around the fire or with your family & letting go to the sound.
Everybody can play the shaman drum!!
It's the heartbeat of our Mother.
"My first shaman drum changed my life & has made me do things, I never thsays Mouschka, your Drum Doula.ought I dared or could - my drums still do! It’s an ongoing process, a friend for life!"
Each drum I've made & helped birth has its totally own magic & spirit!
FreeYourself drums are also very good for musicians who want to tune their drum, as you can add a bike hose in it. This means you can pump it with air to change the tone or tighten the skin, when you don't have a fire to warm it up.
Now you can build your own handmade high-quality shaman drum (frame drum) - crafted with crystals, engraved power symbols & shamanic guidance. This workshop is part crafting, part working on intentions & part a mirroring process.
The program includes a drum journey, sharing circles, meditations, ceremony & personal life coaching with Mouschka Drouzy in needed (see bio further down).
Intended for a very small group of max. 6 people - to step into the power of the circle & work together in a space of confidentiality.
Can you feel your drum calling now?
The course will be in Swedish or English depending on the group. Scroll down for prices & how to sign up.
SHAMAN DRUM MAGIC
A shaman drum has its own magic; it has a spirit of its own! You can't explain it, but it's normally visible that something starts to change as soon as you've ordered your drum or your drum building course.
When I'd built my first drum, I saw very specific spirits jump into it. But you don't need to believe in anything "supernatural" to get a shaman drum, other than the will to be yourself.
Beating the drum at a slow rate resonates with your heart & has an instant calming effect. At a quick beat, it stimulates the brain to slow down & go into a meditational mode.
If you listen, the drum will tell you what is its particular gift just for you!
THE PROCESS MIRRORS YOU
Making a drum is an amazing process. You never know when you start how it’s going to look. The hide is a work of art itself & you can’t guess in advance which beings that are going to show themselves in the pattern of the hide. Some drums are stubborn, they have their own strong will & theyb might break on the way & get an intricate pattern. Some become more symmetrical.
- Just like you!
You'll start with a drum journey to find which spirits or symbols will come through your drum.
You'll be stimulated to step into your own power in the circle through coaching, drum journeys, ceremony & meditations & coaching questions.
During the weekend, you get all the practical guidance to engrave your frame, build the drum with deer, reindeer (or horse or moose) skin & add crystals.
And you'll be stimulated to be aware of what the drum is telling you through the whole process, on a mental, emotional & energetical level!
In the end, we'll make a ceremony to initiate it & ask for guidance from its spirits.
If more than 6 people sign up, Markus will be our assistant & help with the building.

If you want a special color or stone pls. ask beforehand.
You're also welcome to bring your own crystals (nb! Not too heavy & not too small, not round, but flat & preferablyt with edges to attach them better).

TUNING: The drum can also get a bike hose to tune it & it allows you to tighten the skin when it’s humid weather & you don't have a fire. Perfect to go out in Nature! Bike hose is in the price.

YOUR GUIDE- MOUSCHKA SHANTA DROUZY
"My passion is to help people step into the center of their own power & follow their inner voice. My coaching & drum sessions aim to help you let go, one by one, of the limiting beliefs you have of yourself & strengthening that muscle where you dream your life into being. I believe in radical honesty & openness & in seeing everything as your mirror in order to take responsibility for your own emotions".
Mouschka is ½ danish ½ french, born of a catholic prior-cathedral organist -university film teacher-author & a painter-journalist mother.
She aims to combine spirituality, psychology & art with a care for Nature.
After having gone to university for 10 years, she changed her path & became a double-entrepreneur, starting a totem animal jewelry design business & graduating from a 2½ year-long life coach education in 2007.
She has since then participated in multiple shamanic ceremonies, workshops & sweat lodges with both native American, Sami & western shamans.
It was going on a personal vision quest in 2013 & building her first drum in 2014 that made her understand the power of intention & prayer & changed her life path.
Since the first time she beat her drum, she’s been doing drum journeys, traveling in both Norway, Sweden & Denmark to share the drumming & coaching. When Mouschka drums, she uses her knowledge from Reiki initiation, trusting the inner images & messages, she lets the drum & its spirits be the guide.
The last 4 years her drum called her to tune in on creating powerful symbolic drums for other people & lately creating drum building courses for small groups with personal coaching & ceremonies.
Mouschka adopted Pippi's motto "That I've never done before, so it'll certainly go well!" She wants to transmit that passion of jumping into the new to you & comes with a wish for love, sincerity, openness and freedom.
