  • Enhance Motivation
  • Increase Clarity
  • Help you find Purpose
  • Find Peace
  • Experience Nurturing
  • Transform your life

Deeply Healing

Drumming is the language of the soul. This non-verbal communication decodes the confusion of our minds and speaks directly to your heart, bringing transformation to your life on many levels.

Being in harmony with the elements through drumming puts you in harmony with yourself, your community, family and the world.

Based on a 5 Element system comprised of Fire, Water, Earth, Mineral, and Nature this age-old system brings balance, healing, and transformation.

Each rhythm calls to the energy of each element to enhance your quality of life and connection to those you drum with. This workshop is fun, entertaining and will enrich your life.

You will learn:

  • Proper hand techniques for drumming
  • Each of the 5 element rhythms
  • The energy and meaning of each rhythm
  • How to use drumming for stress relief
  • Drumming for meditation
  • Drumming to support community
  • Drumming for peace

Date: June 2nd

Time: 10am – 4pm

May 20-23, 2019 – Kauai Hawaii – Release Your Sh*t & Claim Your Power  –  First segment of a 9 Week Program

Short Story: 

“You have a very important job to do!” These were the words of an African elder to me after a conversation we had about how shitty I felt about myself. 

It was surprising because I felt completely detached from any sense of purpose. I felt alone in the world, I had lost my confidence and felt like I was holding on by my fingernails. Like the cat on the “Hang In There, Baby” poster! 

After a series of practices that helped me release wounds of the past, eliminate grief and the acknowledgment that I had made some bad choices and needed to forgive myself, things started to change. Before I knew it, my life had meaning, I regained a sense of purpose and I was moving in the right direction. 

Release Your Shit & Claim Your Power consists of a small group, 4 people to be exact that are ready to breakthrough to realize their greatness! 

Heres How It Works: 

Step #1

“A problem can’t be solved with the same energy it was created with.” ~ Einstein 

We start each morning with Active Imagination Meditation Practice. This will help to shift our energy to a resourceful state.

Don’t worry if you have no idea what I’m talking about, I’ll teach you all you need to know. 

This practice will focus your intention and help you start the process of seeing yourself in your transformed form. 

Step #2

“Movement is the medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional and mental state.” ~ Carol Welch

Next, we move.

Each morning we will go on a hike to a sacred site.

Day 1 – Sleeping Giant Ocean side

Day 2 – Secrets Beach

Day 3 – Sleeping Giant Valley side

These places will activate your mind, body & spirit to align with the meditation work we do. 

Step #3

“We enter ritual in order to respond to the call of the soul.” ~ Malidoma Some`

Each day we will perform a ritual to release the things that are distracting us from our purpose or binding us to a path of misfortune or dis-ease.  Then we will activate the path to realize our greatness and receive our personal power. 

The rituals will be determined by the needs of the group. 

We will also participate in drumming and other healing activities as the need arises.

This kind of adventure cannot be too heavily structured. Each person will come with needs and become aware of needs as we progress. 

Step#4

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did…EXPLORE, DREAM, DISCOVER ~ Mark Twain

We Follow Up With 8 Weeks Coaching

Every 2 weeks for 8 weeks after the retreat each participant will receive a 1 hour one on one support coaching session so we can keep the transformation happening as you re-enter life! 

Are you ready for an epic transformation?

May 2019 One-On-One ReClaim Your Life Adventure On Kauai

Reclaim Your Life

This is a 3 day One on One experience designed for you to Reclaim Your Life, Your Happiness and Sense of Purpose! 

Here is a quick story:

On February 13th, 1991 I sat in my living room with a bottle of gin and a 9mm pistol

I had lost all sense of purpose, meaning and value in life. I could not think of one reason to continue. 

I felt, invisible to the world, uncomfortable in my own skin, like a failure, a fake and discouraged. 

I thought to myself, “I am not worthy to have the life I dream of”. I was ready to check out!

I made it through that fateful day and began the process of ReClaiming my life. 

Reclaiming Your Life Requires 3 Simple Things… not easy, simple.

1- Face Your Fears

2- Find Your Mission (aka sense of purpose)

3- Connect to your Superpowers! 

Here’s the plan:

You and I will work one on one, that’s right, just you and me. Each day we will challenge your Mind, Body, and Spirit. 

The day starts with a time of Active Imagination/Shamanic Journey a form of meditation which helps you get focused and clear about what you want to create. Don’t worry if you are not familiar with this, I will teach you. (Mind)

Then you summit the mountain of your greatness! We climb Sleeping Giant, one of the most magical places on Kauai. This hike will really activate your physical fitness. Don’t get nervous, I’ll be with you all the way!  (Body)

Next, we will spend time at a sacred site or remote beach to refresh your spirit and revitalize your soul with ritual and ceremony. (Spirit)

“My session with you was truly phenomenal! Truly an experience that has touched my very soul so profoundly”.

“Words do not do justice as to how the drum connected with every fiber of my being. For the very first time in a long time, I feel like I’m alive again!”

“Hello Toby, thank you!  I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed and appreciated what a fantastic experience your drumming concert was. It exceeded all expectations on all levels. I think it might’ve been one of the first times I’ve attended something that delivered exactly what was promised and beyond.

I’m really glad that I decided to attend. Thank you for sharing.”
