Birthing the Shaman’s Drum

I came to Sogn to make my own skin drum, but I received so much more than that. I found a teacher who is down to earth, humble, inspiring, loving and wise. I re-discovered a sacred connection to Nature under his guidance and in his gentle tutelage, got a glimpse of what it takes to become a real healer. I have attended other shamanic practices and courses but none of them can compare to what Simon taught me in the 6 days I was there. He calls the course “Birthing the Shaman’s Drum”. This title aptly describes the journey I went on to bring my drum into being. He created a container within which each person on the course felt not only completely held, but also totally seen. It was the most incredible experience to be seen like that.

If you are someone who is interested in doing some real work of the heart and the soul, then I cannot recommend this enough! I will be going back probably a few more times this year and I will certainly be recommending Simon as a teacher to the people who are interested in this work. You will not find anyone better in my opinion.

I write this testimonial gladly and I hope the person reading this has an idea of what I feel in my heart. Thank you Simon.
