Eagle Owl Drum Circle in Doncaster. Sitting around a large Mother Drum using drum beaters, we sing Native American songs and a variety of other medicine songs from different cultures.

Originally, we were the drum crew for Dance to Heal the Earth (South Africa), which is an international Sun Dance envisioned by Grandmother Robin Youngblood, held around the world once a year. We have yet to bring this Dance to the UK so we hope the UK crew will enjoy singing and drumming for now! There is no obligation to join the Dance crew, some drummers prefer to just join the practices.

If you have your own shamanic hand drum, you are welcome to bring it. Drum beaters are provided for the Mother Drum. We meet twice a month for 2 hours on a Saturday or Sunday. Please send Gerri a message via whatsapp on 07539149568 or email gerri.stevenson@outlook.com to receive further details. You can also look up us up on Facebook.
