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.

Shamanic Medicine Drum Making Workshop on the Central Coast

Ahhh……it’s a few months off yet, but as deposits hit our account and people step up for our February medicine drum making workshop, the excitement is building this end! I’m feeling that this workshop is going to be full! Yay!

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.

This workshop will be at Circle of Life at East Gosford.

Summer Medicine Drum Making Workshop

Hi everyone,

We have decided to postpone our SPRING workshop, and instead run it in the SUMMER. It all felt a little rushed getting home from travelling and having had no time to advertise. We have taken some time to breathe!!

Here’s the updated flyer. Please feel free to make contact via the email provided on the flyer  if you have any questions etc.

Due to the timing, GIFT VOUCHERS will be available and would make fab Xmas presents!

Home coming….

After several months off “work” and mostly “off-line”, I am home! And it feels good to sleep in my own bed, bathe in my own bath, have a toilet that flushes, AND have a washing machine 🙂 Oh the things we take for granted!

I was off creating memories for my four year old who is starting school full-time next year. We ventured all the way across Oz to Broome where we felt our feet upon the red dust of The Kimberly (my ancestral home)….then up to Darwin where I first felt her flutter in my womb….then north east to Kuranda near Cairns to run a medicine drum making workshop. I suspect we travelled 20,000 km!

Travelling over the Winter months and thus missing out on the opportunity to hibernate and rest, was challenging at times. There were many moments when I wanted to snuggle under the duvet and watch a video, but instead found myself in the harsh West Australian sun! (I know! “Poor me”!!) So to compensate, this Spring will have an element of hibernation for me, whilst we transition back to life on the East Coast, in a house with  4 walls and a roof LOL. I am being super gentle with myself as I integrate that Super Moon…some past life insights….and also wisdom gained in Sacred Circle with Blessed siStars and brothers. Big times!

I am pleased to say that my daughter grew in so many ways whilst we explored our amazing country. She learned about all sorts of animals, ate bush tucker on Country, developed a love for mud pies, and co-created priceless family memories. Here are a few of the hundreds of photographs I took on walkabout. I hope you enjoy them.

Medicine Drum Making Workshop comes to the Central Coast!

I am delighted to announce our medicine drum making workshop here on The Central Coast.

The foundation of the workshop and the drum making process revolves around exploring, unpacking, and understanding your own birth. My teacher, Jane Hardwick Collings suggests that by revisiting our birth (our first rite of passage) we can better approach, understand, and process other rites of passage…such as birthing our babies. (Even if you have birthed once already, every subsequent birth matters!) My own journey making my own drum has definitely had a huge impact on my life, and deepened my understanding of my Self. I won’t birth a baby again, but I birth projects regularly!

So if you live within an easy drive from the Central Coast, jump on line and grab yourself a ticket. The session is limited to 8.

Tickets here

Calendar of Events – Autumn 2015 – Summer 2016

I am pleased to announce and present The Central Coast End of Life Collectives calendar of events for 2015-2016.

CCEOLC Calender of Events 2015-2016 final

Our events are open to everyone, irrespective of health status, religious or spiritual views, or any other “box” society can file us into! We do try to keep our events free from debate about religious views, however, with the preference of focussing more on how to live more fully as we make our way, either swiftly or seemingly slowly, to the metaphorical finish line.

We really do hope you can join us. If you’ve not been along before, please bring a friend or just come along – we are a welcoming bunch!

We have tried to vary the type, location and times of events, in the hope that there’s ‘something for everyone’.

Please refer to specific events for facilitator details, and related contact details.
