***Ladies, please note that this workshop is a ceremony in and of itself and awakening a drum that you would like to use in ceremony is not recommended when on your “moon time” (while menstruating). This is because our moon time is a powerful ceremonial time of discarding and the act of drum making is an act of creation- the two aspects are very vital to life, however they are energetically oppositional, which can impact the flavour of the medicine of your drum. If you have any questions regarding this topic, or you would like to take the workshop but may be on your moon time on these dates please feel free to give us a call at 250-226-6702- we are happy to discuss this with you so that we can support you in honouring your sacred time.
We are located in the beautiful Slocan Valley on an acreage just steps from Airy Creek. Our head office/ retreat centre is located in a unique hand crafted straw bale timber frame house. Our sweat lodge is also located onsite. There are two bed and breakfast rooms available for rent year round- call 250-226-6702 to inquire about an overnight stay with us! To find us: We are located at 4615 Passmore Upper Rd.in the Slocan Valley. Follow Highway 6 towards Nakusp/Winlaw from the Junction. Go past the Slocan Park Co-op and turn left onto Passmore Upper Rd. Cross the silver bridge and continue straight (the road turns to gravel) to the end of the road where you will see a Y intersection. The left turns into a logging road so keep right where you see a “No Through Road” sign and follow down the windy road (there are a few blind corners so use your horn to let oncoming traffic know you’re coming!) the road will come to a straight stretch and about 1.5 km along you will see a large straw bale- timber frame house with a green roof and large reflective numbers on the left. We are 4.5 km from the highway. You are here!
