Medicine Drum of Many Colours by Martha Lucier

Medicine Drum of Many Colours

By Martha Lucier, CCSS Founder & Collective Member

A voice within my own heart calls to me. I follow the voice each step on the Soul pathway, even though I don’t really know where it leads, or why I have been called; even though the voices around me, might question, seed doubt or plant fear. I simply answer the calling I hear from deep within.

When I find myself amongst those who are suffering from depression, from the weight of losing a child, from anger and resentment, from oppression and deep loss, I hear the calling from within to become the medicine. I become the drum beat of Mother Earth Herself. I surrender myself, my agenda, my expectations, my fears, my doubts, my apprehensions, my judgments. I surrender all of me to become the medicine; the hollow bone.

I do not know how this medicine will use me. Sometimes, I am a song that carries deep vibration that moves, transforms and clears heaviness. Sometimes my body is sculpted into shapes, forms and movements, like a clay figure, bending and contorting, being molded and shaped. I become the medicine dance, swirling, twirling and twisting, clearing new pathways for the soul to stretch and find itself again.

Sometimes the artist within me paints the colours of my heart. I become the Medicine of the Rainbow; colours exploding and blending, changing and merging, until an image begins to take shape, sometimes with words or a title; the colours themselves expressing the story of my heart and soul. Sometimes the medicine flows through writing, ceremony, my nighttime dreams, prayers and journeys.

I do not know when I will be called to be the Medicine. Here is one such story from my experience with the World Drum.



Home Practice

Connecting with your own heart beat, invite your pulse to carry you down your soul pathway.

▪ What does your soul pathway look like? Feel like? Taste like? Smell like? Sound like?
▪ What medicine flows along your path?
▪ How are you called to nourish yourself, family and community with the medicine you carry?

Soul Call

CCSS Collective Members and theWorld Drum share their heart voices in the “Spiral Home” song, gifted from Spirit.


Living Transformation

Did you know the ancient Greek’s word for ‘Soul’ is the same as the word for ‘Butterfly’ – Psyche? In an article entitled “Our 17th Century Soul Loss: Metamorphosis 1”, author Ken Hamilton shares that the writings of ancient Greeks include references to the soul, Psyche, as a bridge between the body-mind and spirit’.

The new CCSS Soul Pathways of Shamanism one year training is for those who are ready for a living transformation that will deeply nourish and restore the soul.

During this year long journey we will explore the nature of our collective and individual soul loss, while engaging in shamanic methods of Soul Retrieval.

In this training we will find keys of wisdom within our bones. We will re-discover the maps that carry our stories, opening pathways that fertilize our inner garden for new seeds of growth, as unspun threads are woven again.

“We locked up our wisdom into our bones
And swallowed the keys
They sank in our rivers of blood
And we forgot the maps
Because we had to forget the mysteries
To keep them safe.
We wove our hair into brooms
And swept over our paths
And then burned the earth with our rage
We didn’t teach our children
It was the only way to protect them,
we thought
But in them we planted seeds, seeds and keys
And told them stories and riddles and songs
With no roots, just tangled threads
That would take years to unwind
Just enough time
For the rains to fall again
and put out the fires
For the dams to break
For the rivers to flood
For the paths
to be walked again
For the soil to breathe
And as the old bones crumble
Deep beneath the rubble
We find we’ve always had the keys
Our stories and our maps
Our paths are revealed to some
And the seeds grow again
The threads are unspun
And woven again.”
~Amara Bronwyn Hollow Bones
