shamanic drumbuilding workshop was one of the best experiences I had in
my life so far. From the moment I arrived at the workshop place I had a
certain feeling of peace and calm in and allaround me. Meeting Susanne
and Erik for the first time was like seeing friends you know from a time
very long ago (wich I belive they actually are). The whole course
starting from the accommodation to the participants to the practical
work was experienced by me very well prepared and in a flow. With every
shamanic journey, every step in the drum building I could feel, that I'm
not with people who do their job but follow their vocation. The
beautiful nature at the workshop place added the rest to this
unforgettable adventure. For me maybe the best thing about this unique
workshop was the humor Susanne and especially Erik showed during our

love me very much. I just can highly recommand this workshop to
everybody who is interessted in shamanism and a life connected to
