What we're about

Cyndy Paige, owner of Rhythm of the Earth, is a long-time student of Sun Bear's Chippewa Medicine Wheel, and she uses the teachings of the wheel to inspire the circles to create a connection between heart, soul and the natural world. The Earth Mother and the plants and animals we share her with have much to teach us!

"The entire experience of the Sacred Circle is of course...healing. The drum rhythms I teach are ancient, mostly slow, meditative and deeply transformative (the heartbeat for instance). They feel of course, quite shamanic because we connect with the energies of the earth...the animals...the elements...the trees...the stones...the heart of the Earth Mother. We also connect with whatever each circle member’s experience of the divine is...whatever name, feeling, system or belief. Even though I teach from a Native American foundation, it matters not what or who (divine energy) you bring to the circle...all are honored. At the core...the experience of the Rhythms, Dances, Sounds, and Energy of the circle, are deeply Spiritual, and of course a feeling of Unity, Peace and Balance is possible. The space in the center of a lovingly created sound cannot help but heal and expand our hearts. Absolutely no experience is needed, and if you don’t have a frame drum, one will be provided."

Cyndy Snake Dancer Paige received the name “Snake Dancer” from Spirit in a profound Vision Quest experience. She is of Muscogee Creek and Choctaw heritage and is a Council member of the Buffalo Trace Society. She is a traditionally trained Shamanic Sound Healer and Sacred Drum and Rattle Maker who has extensively studied Earth honoring traditions, in initiatory type apprenticeships, with indigenous elders.

One Day Drum Birthing workshop


Cyndy Paige of RHYTHM OF THE EARTH, and Melvina Brown of INNERSOURCE WELLNESS CENTER, Invite you to Create a Medicine Wheel Frame Drum in a Sacred Way A drum is a powerful tool that can be used for honoring Spirit, healing, clearing and generating energy. Do you yearn to be part of a sacred circle of like-minded souls who bring their hearts together in an ancient way to create, play, eat, laugh, share and support each other? During this day we will use native ceremony and guided journey to assist you in developing a deep relationship with the drum you are birthing. You may journey to the heart of your new drum and ask it how it wishes to manifest its journey on its Earth walk. Is it a personal medicine tool, a community tool, a healing tool? In the process of birthing your drum, it is possible to experience a deep transformation, and an initiatory-type integration of your personal power. Cyndy and Spirit will guide you through all of the simple techniques of creating your drum. ENERGY EXCHANGE: $350.00 which includes all materials to make a round 16" Sacred Medicine Wheel Drum with a Deerskin head, on a Canadian Cedar frame, and a beater. Other sizes (add $100 for an 18” drum) and skins (16” Buffalo, $400, Elk $380, Moose $400) are available upon request. The Animal Beings and the Cedar that becomes the sacred energy of your drum are honored during our process. The power of the symbol created by the lacing pattern (an 8-pointed star), and its connection with the Medicine Wheel of Life, will be revealed during our time together.
