Sincerely welcome You!

I am Attila Heffner Cross, sacred shamanic drum maker master...

ELkészült a varázsdob! NEW DRUM MAKING VIDEO!

Shamanic drum making information:

The diameter of the drums is usually: 30 -62 cm.

Height of the frame 8-23 cm.

The drum handle can be made from leather or wood according to your desire. The leather handle gives a better acoustic for the sound. The handle is made in accordance to your personal numerology number of birth. For example if you are born on 13/03/1967 - my birthday - to calculate your numeber of birth we must add all the numbers: 1+9+6+7+3+1+3 = 30 - 3 + 0 = 3 So the handle will have three parts.

In order to make your drum unique for you and in harmony with your energy in a sacral way, i need your name and date of birth, some personal simbols or runes and a picure about you in jpg format. All this thing will be put inside the "spirit" of the drum, inside the frame, where they're not visible. Just sit and relax, take your time to draw, paint, write everything that you want to resound in your drum.

The time of preparation depends on the actual number of drum orders. It usually needs 40-80 days.

money:  I make a drum for 200 EUR, the postal delivery fee for Europe is around 50 EURO. 80 -100€ for South America and North America, Azsia, Ausztralia.

Drum-making, Ritual, Concert and Meditation, Studying

A course with lots of music, drum-making and seminary, led by Attila Heffner, Hungarian sacrd drum-maker, spiritual composer, musician and sound-healer.

It's a 4-6 day course  / from Thurs /

s day to Sunday , or as it is wished) and during this time 10 drums can be prepared together. Those who wouldn't like to have a drum can take part in the course as helpers.

In the programme, each participant can make their own shamanic drum. That's why I ask everybody who would like to make a drum to send me their favourite symbols, runes, photos or their own drawings in an e-mail (jpg doc or pdf).

Based on this information, I prepare the drum shell - cut to each person and tuned up to each person when preparing. For women, the usual size is 46-52 cm in diameter, for men it is 53-56 cm. The height of the drum is 8-9 cm.

I prepare the symbols or drawings onto the inner side of the drim, so that they will vibrate invisibly in the ready made drum.
The drim is made of white birch. I take the shells to the scene rough and the owners themselves will make them ready. In that way each drum will include its owner's handwork, vibration, symbols and birth formula.

On the spot everybody can choose their own leather to their drums from the raw, dried leather (goat, deer or stag skin) I bring. Everybody should choose the leather which invites them just like a piece of rock-crystal does its would-be owner. After choosing the pieces of leather, we soak them in sacred water ( spring or streem water).

After this procedure everybody polishes their own drumshell, then one by one I help to set up the drumhead. Next step is to make the handle of the drum. It can be made of either wood or leather on demand. The handle can be 3-4-5-6-7-8-9-12 branched according to the owners' numerological formula.

Putting the leather on a drum takes 6 hours, so we can finish 2, max. 3 drums a day. In the meantime, we talk to eachother and listen to spiritual music, we use incense sticks and sacred tools. That way the drum will "contai" all these and the owners' vibration.

Every day I offer different programmes after the drum making.

1. Lecture on shamanic drums, how to use them and how to heal with them and generally about sound healing. (3 hours with the help of interpreter)

2. Attila Heffner dynamic concert and ritual with the cours members' participation (playing music, drumming, dancing, singing)

3. Mutual meditation to Attila's latest meditational programme "Inner Journey" 5.1 Soundmagic
Suncross, four divine members family constellation (with interpreter)

4. How to play the drums-- teaching session.

5. Drum initiation ceremony, prayers, closing ceremony.
