Yes, Master Drum Maker Jorge Lewis is offering another opportunity to learn about the spiritual qualities of drums by making one.

On Saturday, Aug. 13, from 1-4 p.m., Lewis will guide participants through the creative process of constructing a drum.

To drum is to become part of the greater wisdom of the world.  Along the way, Lewis will offer teachings about drums, including the respect paid to the animal who has sacrificed its’ hide, stories of how the drum came to the people, usage of the drum and the spiritual connection of drums that continues from ancient times to today.
