Move through a guided sound-healing experience featuring the rhythms of the sacred frame drum, guided imagery, active visualization, and your own breath — to shift your mindset and enjoy optimal health and wellbeing.
Modern science and ancient wisdom agree — the shifts you make in your mindset and emotions can profoundly and positively impact your health and immune system.
Seekers the world over are returning to the somatic practice of sacred frame drumming — adding rhythm and drumming to their self-care practices as a form of active meditation, healing, contemplation, and focus.
The practice of frame drumming has a rich cross-cultural history for healing, celebration, ceremony, and rites of passage.
And today, researchers, scientists, and laypeople alike are exploring how the power of music and sound healing — along with our beliefs and subjective experiences — can have a measurable impact on our biology, immune system, and mental and emotional states.
Many people have reported that following a focused drumming session, they often feel a shift in consciousness and a change in mood or energy.
You’ll experience a focused drumming session for yourself when you join us for a new online event with Krista Holland, a multifaceted teacher and frame drummer...
Krista will guide you through a practice featuring the sound of the frame drum. You’ll use guided imagery, conscious breathing, and rhythm as tools for shifting your state of consciousness — and activating the natural healing that comes with relaxation and stress reduction.
Krista’s approach to playing the frame drum weaves together the sacred, mythological, and technical aspects of drumming through story, visualization, somatic inquiry, rhythm notations, and more...
You won’t need any musical experience to access this simple, yet powerful guided practice.
In this free workshop, Krista will share how you can initiate a healing transformation when you combine the time-tested practices of drumming and conscious breathing with modern research on the power of your thoughts.
In this 50-minute free online event, you’ll discover:
- A powerful practice to help stimulate the potential of your immune system through guided imagery and active visualization — accompanied by a sound-healing experience set to the rhythms of the sacred frame drum and your breath
- How the frame drum became a mythical cross-cultural art form that’s part of the collective human story — and has long led to improved health outcomes, powerful self-discovery, mental clarity, balance, and belonging
- How the frame drum’s rhythm can be a complementary self-care tool for stress reduction, self-healing, and creative wellbeing
- Your body’s built-in system for relaxation, including its endogenous healing mechanisms
- The power of rhythm and drumming for shifting your consciousness
When you join us, you’ll also hear about a new opportunity to study more deeply with Krista in her upcoming 12-week course. You’ll learn to play the frame drum — or refine your existing skills — by immersing yourself in its techniques and ancient cross-cultural history. Through the power of drumming, you’ll remember how connected we truly are through life’s rhythms.

It’s nothing short of magic, and staring in awe at our sacred place in the Divine Mother’s infinite loving womb!

She has devoted more than 25 years of research and practice to the frame drum and its incredible cross-cultural history, and has 15 years of experience teaching the frame drum to others.
Krista learned the art of frame drumming along with ritual, myth, and ancient feminine drum history while apprenticing for 14 years under the tutelage of the late Layne Redmond, author of When the Drummers Were Women. Krista also counts Babatunde Olatunji, Yshai Afterman, and Walter Garces among her most influential drumming teachers.
Primarily focusing her frame drumming on its healing aspects rather than on drum performance, Krista has drummed privately for cancer patients in hospice, pregnant mothers at their blessing ways, grieving parents, modern temple dancers, trance journeys, children at bedtime, elderhood rites of passage, and a variety of other life ceremonies and rituals.
Krista is known for her unique style of playing, her powerfully transformative teaching, and her knowledge of the mythology and widespread history connected to the ancient lineage of global frame drummers. She teaches sacred drumming through online and in-person private classes, group workshops, immersions, and international retreats.
