June 2017 Classes
Friday and Saturday, June 9th-10th Re-membering your Soul's Path on Friday evening June 9th (full moon) and Saturday June 10th. It is a class on bringing forth your medicine through the shamanic techniques of soul remembering, dismemberment, divination, shadow animal work and trance dance.
We'll begin Friday evening as we set our circle and create sacred space for the weekend. With the full moon energies we will trance dance to open our hearts, gather our power and make a commitment to re-membering our soul's path. On Saturday we'll begin by learning the shamanic technique of soul remembering to call forth our medicine and give it symbolic representation. Through a dismemberment journey we will release what we no longer need, work with our shadow animal and use crystal divination and ecstatic trance pose to gain further insight into our medicine. You must be proficient at journeying and have a good working relationship with your power animals to attend. Friday, 7-9pm, Saturday, 10am-3:30pm. $100. Please let me know if you are interested.
Saturday, June 24th, 2 year core shamanism training. 10-4pm We will discuss ethics and begin our psychopomp work, working with those who are dying or who have already passed over. Class closed.
July 2017 Classes
I will be offering a Drum Making class on Saturday, July 15th from 10-4pm. $185.00 You will be making a 15", 13 sided cedar frame drum with elk hide and beater. $185 per drum—1/2 ($95) to be paid at time of registration—deadline July 1st. Remainder due at time of class ($90). Class size is limited to 8.
Registration/payment to be sent to: Jeanne Troge, 614 Forest Ave, Park Rapids, MN 56470 by July 1st, 2017. Checks should be made payable to Jeanne Troge.
The beat of the drum is the heartbeat of Mother Earth, and connects us to our own heart. Making a drum is really a transformational journey into our own hearts. It is a voice that is birthed by spirit and the love that comes from the sacrifice of the elk and the tree. In this class we will meet the spirit of our drum and will learn how it is to be used in our life. We will also discover the spirit animal of our drum.
Drumming has many benefits to body and soul. Drumming at 220-260 beats a minute puts your brain waves into an alpha or theta state where you are deeply relaxed and may even receive visions. Drumming can help reduce stress and is great for addressing anger issues. You may contact Jeanne at email@example.com for more info or questions.
All materials will be provided and are included in the price of the workshop. If you have some special beads or feathers which you’d like to decorate your drum with you may also bring them. Early registration including ½ payment for the class is required so that supplies can be purchased. Registration closes July 1st. Final payment is due the day of class.
Class will be held outside at Jeanne's home in Park Rapids (weather permitting). Otherwise it will be held at the Yoga studio, 601 1st St. E. (Hwy 34), Studio #1, Park Rapids, MN. You can see pictures of the drum on my business facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/JeanneMarieEarthdrummer/?hc_ref=PAGES_TIMELINE

I do ask that you park in the street and not in the parking lot for classes. We are in a mini strip mall and the other businesses (an E-cig shop and a take and bake pizza place) have customers coming and going and need open parking places. Our studio has a big YOGA sign above our door.
