SHAMANIC DRUM MAKING: A 3 part series to create your own Sacred Drum With Shamanic Practitioner Sheilagh Mercer

You are invited to take part in all three events or if you have a drum, sign up for the dates that you wish to take part in.

Drum Making - Part 1 of the Series Investment $350

This workshop is not only about the physical creation of your own hand drum. It’s a journey and process to hand craft a sacred instrument. The process of making your own drum is meditative & allows you to connect with your intuition and Spirit Guides/Animal Totems. Participants often experience a healing and/or an emotional release while assembling their drum.

The workshop begins with a ceremony to open up sacred space. This creates a safe and honoured space for all participants as we embark on our journey together. In this sacred space the connection between the Divine and participants is enhanced, allowing messages and guidance to come through as we make our drums.

The drum frame consists of 8 segments made of White Cedar. Each segment has three holes which represent the past, present, and future. Before we begin tying the knots to secure the hide to your drum, you will be asked to assign a person, place, or thing to each of these 8 segments. As you are tying your knots through each of the holes you may receive a message or guidance pertaining to one or some of these 8 aspects. Each knot has meaning, and as you work your way around the frame you connect deeply with your drum.

By the end of this journey you will have hand crafted your very own hand drum with your energetic finger prints laced through each and every knot. Sheilagh allows plenty of time for everyone to complete their drum in this workshop, at the end of which we will perform a final ceremony to close the sacred space.

All tools and materials to assemble your drum are provided.

Please Note: Lunch is not provided. We will take a 1 hour lunch break mid-way through the day, allowing for plenty of time to step out for a bite to eat at any of the near-by eateries.

Real Ghost Stories with Peter Roe Paranormal Investigator

Sunday, 27 October 2019 at 7:00pm

Just in time for Hallowe’en, paranormal investigator and ghost researcher Peter Roe manifests at Nature’s Spirit, October 27th at 7pm to speak and present his debut nonfiction publication, Haunted Town Halls (Quagmire Press)!

As Assistant Director of Canada's oldest, renowned paranormal investigations team The Searcher Group, Peter spearheaded a 2½ year 'Town Hall Tour' throughout southwestern Ontario, exploring former courtrooms, jail cells, marketplaces and auditoriums – including Acton, Caledon, Orangeville, Waterford, Stouffville and Toronto.

This event is open to history and heritage lovers, believers and skeptics alike! As we approach Hallowe’en, join us for chilling, often thought-provoking discoveries to come from investigating these surprisingly haunted locations, as well as hundreds of others over The Searcher Group’s 40-year existence.

Bring your copy of Haunted Town Halls (copies will also be available for $20 cash sale purchase) as a book-signing will follow the program.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The Searcher Group is Canada’s oldest, most reputable paranormal investigation and research team, established in 1979 by Richard Palmisano – three decades before “reality TV” inspired the creation of thousands of similar (though not all trustworthy) teams, worldwide.
In addition to its endurance and a host of several notable accomplishments, The Searcher Group has earned an ironclad reputation for itself regarding confidentiality for its clients and safety of its investigators. This team is a huge proponent of history and works tirelessly to call the public’s attention to our disappearing heritage by sharing their unique experiences in the field.
As featured on the Discovery Channel, the Travel Channel, in five previous nonfiction publications and Reader’s Digest, The Searcher Group is not in the business of 'ghost-busting’. They work to discover whether a haunting is actually occurring, why it is happening and by whom. Only then can the living find a way to co-exist with people-in-spirit existing just beyond our five-sense perception.
Read more about the team, their work, goals and other publications at The Searcher Group's official website.
