How to Make and Use Drums, Masks, Rattles, and Other Sacred Implements In this beautifully illustrated guide, artist and shamanic teacher Evelyn C. Rysdyk shows you how to create, decorate, consecrate, and use sacred tools in ritual and healing. Navaho traditional healers bring rattles, corn pollen, eagle feathers, and sage smoke together with song and dance to affect healing. Manchu shamans will perfume the air with incense and tie on a heavy bustle of iron jingles for their ceremonial costume. Modern shamanic practitioners also use sacred tools to facilitate our connection to helper spirits. While you can purchase many of these tools, there’s nothing quite as powerful as making your own. You’ll find instructions for making rattles, drums, masks, mirrors, pouches, wands, prayer bundles, flutes, and more with suggestions for responsible ways to obtain the materials. The author’s original artwork and photographs of shamans and their authentic tools appear throughout the book.
