Make your own Medicine Drum

It is my pleasure to welcome you, as you embark on your journey in creating a powerful tool to assist you on your path.  The drum has an incredible ability to connect us to ourselves, to the mother Earth and to all realms and people and to the Great Spirit that exists in all creation.  We will journey together in sacred space on 28th April to craft a Medicine Drum that is attuned to your personal energy and intention.  Please consider why you would like to make a medicine drum, and how you would like it to assist you on your path. 

Cost: $390 – $100 deposit to hold your spot, remainder due by 22 April 2019.

About the workshop and my story:

I have been making spirit drums for 13 years and have personally always been drawn and connected to the traditional American peoples.  I believe that all creations, if made with care and intention are imbued with the energies of both the elements that they are created with and the creator. 

In this workshop we will learn to combined the energies of Kangaroo or Deer with Willow tree, to create a ceremonial tool seeped in intention and attuned to your energy.  Once the making is complete we will hold the drum awakening ceremony to awaken our drums and birth them into being. 

I am honoured that Leonie Watson who has spent many years In North America with the Sequoia tribe will be present on the day, holding space and sharing her wisdom with us all.

If you have any questions please feel free to give me a call on: 0412065563 or email me at

Many thanks,

Steiner BnB’s website

Dear Waldorf/Steiner Community,

Since the launching of Steiner BnB’s website six months ago, our worldwide community has listed nearly 60 properties!

Accommodation choices range from a remote stone cottage situated deep in the heart of a game reserve in South Africa to a log cabin in Estonia, from an English cottage on the Big Island of Hawai’i to a beautiful B&B near the Goetheanum.

Now Steiner BnB needs your support to expand our network of affordable housing options in areas that are hosting gatherings including conferences, training, and 100th-year-anniversary celebrations.

Whether a teacher, parent, farmer, eurythmist, Steiner enthusiast or someone who values the principles of Waldorf education, you can help us expand our property listings by spreading the word in your community or by listing space in your home. The website’s calendar easily allows you to offer your space during conference dates only or to leave it available for other dates as well. The more the site expands the better we can serve our community.

You can read the latest Steiner BnB blog about upcoming conferences and available housing here or sign up to our mailing list here. You can also read about and see photos of a Waldorf mom’s life on the Big Island of Hawaii. She’s listed her sea view English style cottage on Steiner BnB. If you’re interested in seeing a photo gallery of schools in Nepal, New Zealand, Hawaii, and Scotland, including student artwork and surrounding landscapes, you can follow Steiner BnB on Facebook or Instagram.

Thank you for your support.

Kind regards,
Heather Fields
Class Teacher & Steiner BnB Founder
