Connect & Drum Retreat

Ready for true connection?

Lowland shaman Peter de Haan and Costa del Soul will take you on a magical drum building journey from 22-26 march 2024. On an Andalusian mountain with breathtaking views, close to National Park Sierra de las Nieves, you will build your own drum, connect with animal spirits, enjoy delicious food and the company of like minded people. 

Listening to your heart becomes a lot easier when playing your own sacred drum. They both beat the same rhythm and will guide you on your spiritual path. Now is your chance to create a sacred tool that will be with you on your life's journey. Crafted with your own hands, with intuitively chosen high quality materials.

Costa del Soul's beautiful location is the ideal base to connect with spirit animals and fellow drum builders. Enjoy the Phoenix Fireplace, Hot Tub with a view and sleep in a comfortable bed in a spacious glamping tent.

Let's craft, connect, and captivate through the magic of sound. 🥁


Our unique PERSON© drum stands out for its design and durability, resulting in a longer lifespan and a more stable sound. Discover why our drums excel:

  • Standard 20 attachment points instead of 16.
  • No use of glue when attaching the skin to the frame.
  • Double-folded skin on weak attachment points or a laced seam with 60 to 80 stitches for thin skins.
  • Prevents tearing and maintains excellent sound quality for an extended period.
  • Ergonomic handle with a choice of a 5-ray hoop or a square cross for even tension.

About Peter the Lowland Shaman

For over 30 years, Dutch 'Lowland Shaman' Peter de Haan encouraged people to give attention to what they want to achieve. "I work from the belief that everything changes, including the shamanic field. We need to move with it, without being unfaithful to our roots. Now that the Age of Aquarius has arrived, the world will slowly embrace more humane values. To do that, we must first turn inward, find our own center, and become our own teacher. The drum supports that process in many ways. It helps you embark on that journey within, helps you trust, helps you bring forth manifestations. In short, make sure you create a drum that truly becomes your Wheel of Change."
