Build your own ShamanDrum

Colibri People

Drum building: Bearer of a Chasqui drum means being part of a call to connect with your own heart and the heart of mother earth; means having an instrument that helps you find your own rhythm, maintain constancy in your life and discover more who you are; belonging chasqui means being part of a family that loves art and life. To elaborate your own ceremonial drum is to internalize the drum as an instrument of personal connection, which at the same time connects with the throbbing of the earth; it is a space of infinite creation based on our sonority; just as the universe creates from sound, so the sound of the drum vivifies our heart and unifies us with the collective consciousness; Bringing back the connection with the ancestor as a messenger of an ancient heart that travels through time and the native cultures of the planet to make a call ...

In this beautiful meeting we invite you to temper your own traditional drum in a sacred way.
Price for one day drum building 150 euro. Thursday from 10.00 to 18.00h
If you want to participate in this workshop you can subscribe in advance by sending an email to: templegrounds@thelivingvillagefestival.org

Our group formed within the many Ceremonies working with Kambo and Ayahuasca, being guided by our dearest friend and teacher Mauro (medicineman from Brasil) which we have been assisting and organizing for many years. Since then we became a real close and heartfull family that has shared and healed many precious moments in our lives. All the Ceremonies we shared helped us to bring this strong Heart connection we feel into the group so we can lift people into that warm and safety space. Here we realize that being together is actually our biggest Medicine.
As individuals we all walk for years the shamanic path and created the foundation in this way what we share as a group, where everyone is fulfilling his or her rol, together we offer a beautiful, strong, healing, program for the Living Village 2018

Rapé Ceremony

Spirit Gathering

During the festival you can participate in two healing ceremonies with The Spirit Gathering where we will work with the medicine of Rapéh. We have a selection of different kinds from the Amazon in South America (Ecuador, Colombia and Brazil) handmade by tribes of the jungle. Rapéh is a sacred medicine made from many kinds of tabacco leaves and a variety of plants and herbs from the jungle. These are ground into powder and applied by blowing the powder into the nose through a small pipe. The Rapéh clears your conscious, stimulates your senses and centers the energy in your body making you feel aligned within yourself. It asks you to trust your intuition and helps you purify your body and soul. When your intentions for the ceremony are clear you can often receive clear answers or inspiration from the medicine. Our healing & sound-team has been working together for 2 years in this setting. We are in tune with each other and will provide a gentle and loving basis. We are all intuitive people, most of us have been practicing healing-work such as multidimensional-energetic healing, reiki or have a medical background. Also we are all musically inclined. We will take you on a healing journey of sound with drums, percussion, tones and other instruments. When needed, you receive personal healing 1 on 1. Be carried by the sacred songs we sing as a group. At the end of the ceremony there is room for some short sharing about the experience."The Spirit Gathering

Workshop Circle of Men

Niravo den heijer

"A gathering of open and curious men gives support and is a mirror for yourself as a man. Men find themselves in the company of other men. The circles have a fixed design with bodywork, space to share and exercises on topics associated with men. Together we create a safe space in wich we can rediscover our manhood and in wich you can share your experiences with other men. In the circle you will be invited to reconnect with your essence. In reconnecting with your true essence you drill a unprecedented potential. A infinite stream of vitality and life energy that motivates you to stand for yourself and your space in the world, powerful and vulnerable.. and from there you will be able to follow your own path!

My name is Niravo den Heijer. At a young age I went searching for my roots, the link with my true self. A sometimes hard and ground-breaking path, but also a wondrous journey in wich I more and more discover and live my true individuality and essence!

I am naturally very curious and eager to learn. I like to leave the beaten path to explore new avenues. So I’m getting better adapted tot he ‘natural flow’ of life. I walk this path full of surprises. In wich I use my heart as a directional compass."
