Drum Circles

Magic happens when we gather...

Come join our tribe! Melonie runs regular women's and community drum circles across Essex and in London. Expect to land in a safe and sacred space, to feel held and supported as we ground, share, drum and sing. No experience is needed and there are always drums available to borrow. Sometimes Melonie runs circles elsewhere - these are always advertised in advance.

See the Schedule for upcoming Drum Circles and booking.

Sacred Women's Drum Circles

Melonie currently runs three women's circles.

A monthly Circle on Sundays in Harlow, Essex which takes place outdoors in a beautiful sacred temple site.

A monthly circle on Thursdays that takes place in Notley Yoga Studio, Blackley Lane, Braintree, Essex CM77 7QW

and a quarterly, seasonal circle on a Saturday in Tower Hill, London.

Community Drum Circles

Melonie also runs a monthly Shamanic Drum Circle on a Wednesday, which is open to all, at Marks Tey Parish Hall, Old London Roads, Marks Tey, Essex CO6 1EJ.

Drum Birthing Workshops

Group and 121 Workshops and Retreats across the UK and further afield.

Melonie runs many group drum birthing workshops across the year. As they become available they will be listed. Do get into touch if you want to take part in a group workshop but haven't seen one advertised in your area.

Group days: Come together with others who hear the call and birth your own drum. Spend a whole day in deep connection to hide and hoop - cutting, weaving, binding and finally birthing your very own drum and beater. Groups hold no more than 8 (unless specified) and create a drum with a 4 or 3 strand handle with a central crystal (if desired). For more personalisation see 121 sessions or retreats.

121 options: Melonie holds 121 drum birthing days, where the choice of handle design, hoop decoration and drum embellishment has more scope that a group session. She also holds 2 day re:birthing retreats for individuals - including a 90 min consultation to 'meet' your drum in meditation and to plan how to bring it into being, including any activations, healing or ceremony that supports you, your journey and that of the drum!
For more information or to book a 121 please get in touch

Retreats: Melonie holds a yearly 'Higher Heart of Glastonbury Drum Birthing Pilgrimage' and yearly 'Wiltshire Sacred Sites Drum Birthing Journey' as well as other Drum Birthing retreats.
