Medicine Drum Making workshop UPDATE

Hello beautiful tribe,

As many of you know, I am journeying with “The Great Awakener” AKA metastatic breast cancer in these days, and the only aspects of my work that I am continuing with are drum making and self pleasure circles, so I thought it best I write with an update!

Medicine Drum Workshops now take place with a beautifully intimate group of 2-3 instead of groups of 10. I no longer set dates and then find the people. Instead I wait for someone to contact me, and then we set dates and invite another into the process to work with 2-3 drum makers. This ensures quality 1-1 support and the production of amazing medicine tools. I still work in the same way, starting with your birth…..but we can speak about that once you reach out and make contact.

My suppliers have changed and I now work solely with kangaroo which makes much more sense to me, as well as a beautiful female hoop maker ensuring our hoops are as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible. My costs have thus gone up from the prices I was paying 9 years ago. Again, we can discuss this when you reach out as payment plans are always available.

Winter and the cooler months are the best for making drums, so be sure to reach out sooner rather than later if you are feeling to birth your own stunning drum. I’ve been at it for 9 years now, so you are guaranteed to produce an amazing, tight, high performance drum.

I can’t wait to hear from you.

The Deepening

A sacred space for women & men
to come together in circle to deepen connection to
Self, Other, Mother Earth & Great Spirit.

“It is time for us to stop merely gathering
separately in “women’s” circles & “men’s” circles.
It is time to bring the divine, healing
& healed feminine & the divine,
healing & healed masculine together
so that we can share our
gifts, grow & explore, & together,
create a new paradigm for
interconnection, love & relationship”

The Deepening Central Coast is in its third year of operation, and the final gathering of 2018 saw us catapulted into a new way of being in this beautifully held, sacred space.

We found ourselves opening further…deepening…connecting in ways that we have not before. There was MAGIC and WONDER and genuine, deep enquiry.

We experienced vulnerability…authenticity…POLARITY! It really was amazing. 13 brave open-hearted souls showing up, for themselves and all their relations!

2019 sees us in a great new venue at Umina Beach Yoga (thanks Carloyn and Helen for the warm welcome and for “getting my work in the world!) and we are so excited to be back on track with regular monthly circles now that my son (aged 2) is more manageable and with his dadda regularly.

Have you grabbed your ticket?

Any questions? 0406 502 715

We gather this week Friday 8th February…6.30-9.30pm. See you there!

The Deepening mixed gender circle…and a general update

Wow! I haven’t been on here for just over 2 years! Why? Because I had another bubba, without his daddy here to support me at home (though he was on the periphery, to a varying degree)! Two years on (he’s 2 years and 2 months old) things are now getting easier, and my lovely not-so-new man just said “you need to update your website”…so here I am 🙂

One of my passions, The Deepening, also fell by the wayside as I went into “survival” mode. However,  just yesterday I finally answered my community’s call, and scheduled a gathering for 29th November. Tickets and information can be found here

The last time we met and had a Family Deepening, it was soooo amazing….so many kids and mammas and pappas and well, “tribe”. How blessed we are as a community to be able to gather in this way.

Anyway, now that my son is getting bigger, work is getting easier, and I am better able to answer my Soul’s calling to this work.

I do hope you can join us,

Love and Blessings,

Gypsy and The Deepening Team

A little update from me…

WOW! It’s been months since I last posted on here..and so much has happened! And is STILL happening.

I am pleased to say that I gave birth to a gorgeous, healthy baby boy at the end of August. He’s now nearly 2 months old and an absolute delight!

Amidst the somewhat challenging pregnancy and unexpected emergency Caesar premature birth, we are still working!!! The Deepening has been running since May..and attendance and feedback has been great! We’ve had both women and men at every gathering!!! (Attached is the flyer however we are just about to schedule for 2017)

I am also still doing other work, such as assisting with some beautiful retreats in the mountains…continuing with my henna tattooing…and about to schedule some shamanic medicine drum making workshops for 2017. So we seem to have struck a balance between parenting and working with our community!

What’s in the pipeline:

  • cacao ceremonies
  • medicine drum making
  • weaving
  • The Deepening
  • ‘Whispers from the Womb’ women’s circle

If you’d like to go onto the mailing list please email me at

Blessings…and we hope to see you soon!

Winter Shamanic Medicine Drum Making Workshop

Winter Shamanic Medicine Drum Making Workshop

Hello from the depths of the “almost” dark moon and Samhain!

After a lil bit of time away from website updating and instead, baby-growing (I am pregnant!), I am pleased to be writing with news of our final medicine drum making offering for 2016.

We will gather for the weekend of 11-12th June, on the beautiful Central Coast, and together, birth ourselves and our amazing winter drums into being.

This process is so incredible! I can’t even begin to explain. The drum itself is just a by-product of the delving into our hearts, minds and souls. It’s life changing!

The workshop is open to women and men and we encourage you to stay over with us the night (Saturday) and fully emerge yourself into the process.

Winter is a great time to birth a medicine drum because it will just get tighter over the summer months. Having said that, sometimes it doesn’t really matter much what season you make it in, or where, as the drum I made on country over the winter in the hot dry Kimberely (NT) works perfectly in the damp conditions of chilly Victoria!

So here’s the flyer. You know where to find me 🙂 Best to call! 0406 502 715

Blessings and gratitude,

Gypsy and Karl

In the absence of anger…..

Hello people!

I’ve had quite a journey this past 12 months. And so many other people are too. Astrologically, we are being asked (forced!?) to let go of all that no longer serves us, to make way for the NEW!! That can be scary but also very exciting if you are prepared to surrender to what IS!

If you’d like to keep up with what is happening astrologically, I highly recommend you subscribe to Kaypacha’s newsletter, as he sends out weekly video reports in language that even I can understand! LOL Here’s the link

And if you would like to read a little about what I have been up to, check this article out. It’s my most recent piece on conscious uncoupling and letting go!

Here are a few ore photos to accompany the piece too.

The workshop is open to women and men, and will be facilitated by myself and Karl Griesberg (SOTEMS). It’s such an amazing weekend, learning about ourselves, birthing our own shamanic medicine drums, connecting on the physical and spirit realms. It is suitable for adults and teenagers.
