Frame Drum Wisdom Slide - CreativeMornin

Take A Deep Dive Into The Power Of Your Voice, Rhythm And Soul To Liberate Your Authentic Being And Unique Creative Expression In The World.

After a highly successful and fulfilling Apprenticeship Program in Nashville in 2019, I am excited to share the Application process for the program in 2020.  I am also profoundly humble to be called to share this experience in my hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan. 

Frequently I receive inquiries from people interested in taking a deeper dive to help them develop their skills in working with the frame drum, voice and sound for their own personal growth and to facilitate experiences with different populations of people. I am happy to provide this program in the way that resonates with my heart and soul. And that I know has had a profound impact on the lives of many over the years.


This Apprenticeship Program brings a core group of people together in meaningful ways to have deeper experiences and to gain a vital understanding of how to fully embody what Frame Drum Wisdom is about.


At the end of our rich time together, each participant can determine how THEY are uniquely going to utilize these sound healing and creative expression tools in their own life and work in service to humanity.


It is important for you to realize that you will NOT become a “Certified Frame Drum Wisdom Facilitator”, you will be YOU on the path to living your life with greater confidence, a stronger voice, expanded creative expression, highly energized, and a Divine Human Being on your Unique Soul's Path.


“Frame Drum Wisdom has given me a way to voice my soul. The connections

I’ve made through the apprenticeship are authentic, and I’ve learned what it truly means to hold space for another and also how to be truly held. Learning about the frame drum, and reconnecting to times when women gathered to play and connect with the Devine has been empowering. Sound is truly healing and I can’t say enough. If you are considering the apprenticeship, I highly recommend you do this for yourself!”

— Stephanie Chance

“Karen Renée teaches you how to open a door to your soul and to step inside and listen. Authentic circle communication, therapeutic frame drum use, and intriguing study of the sacred and healing power of music. A journey to be taken, a destination not to be missed, this is an apprenticeship to self discovery.” — D

"The Frame Drum Wisdom Apprenticeship program with Karen Renée is so much fun! Her voice and talents are remarkable. Because of her attitude and knowledge, you feel comfortable and appreciated for who you are and the talents you possess. What I love about Karen Renée is how she allows you to be yourself without judgement. The camaraderie of the group was filled with laughter, sharing and sisterhood (all women). I am learning to accept my voice. I love playing my frame drum; she told me her name is Beauty. I am in great gratitude." — Mary Glesige

The Parameters To Commit To This Program Are As Follows:

For The Ann Arbor Program

1. You Must Be Available To Attend ALL Of The Weekend Gatherings That Will Be Held In Ann Arbor, Michigan

(exact location/s will be determined in early 2020).

It is my sincere belief that the transformative, mystical experience and value of what I share is about people coming together in person to experience and feel the vibrations and connections we create. It is about creating a safe container for people to open up and be vulnerable.

It is about holding space to allow for all emotions to be expressed and honored. It is being a witness and a compassionate contributor to the processes unfolding.

2. You Must Purchase And Read The Following 2 Books.


When The Drummers Were Women: A Spiritual History Of Rhythm
by Layne Redmond.  You can purchase HERE


Music Medicine: The Science And Spirit Of Healing Yourself With Sound
by Christine Stevens.  You can purchase HERE


We will be discussing these books and the information contained in them

as a part of our process and time together throughout the year.

3. You Must Have A Frame Drum By Or At The First Gathering.
I will have some available that day if you would like to purchase through me.

4. You Will Be Required To Sign A Commitment Contract That Will Include A Specific Payment Plan For Your Acceptance Into The Program.


I have found that commitment has become very fuzzy in our culture in recent years and find this step helpful as you decide to make this transformative, life changing commitment for yourself.


After 7 years of following my Soul's Calling (stepping out of the corporate system), without commitment and perseverance to myself and the guidance of Spirit I would not be walking the journey the way I am now. It is not easy...but it is extremely worth it!


5. Are You Still Interested Now That You Understand The Commitment?

Please Complete The Following Application Questionnaire:

Note: There are no wrong answers here. I want to understand your background, hopes and desires, and to gauge how the Apprenticeship Program participants will resonate together.


The  Application Process for 2020 is Officially Closed. 

By Friday, January 31st I will email the final participants accepted a Commitment Contract to be signed and returned to confirm their participation. Payment for the program can be done in full upon acceptance, or by a payment plan that will be outlined in the Contract.

If you have any questions that have not been covered here, please email me at KarenRenee@FrameDrumWisdom.com. I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner.


I am sincerely grateful for your consideration and interest in this program. I know without a doubt that those who step into this experience and process will be changed at depth.  Sound is impacting our lives every day. We have the opportunity to make sound a vital medicine for our personal lives and to actively create harmony in our world by how we interact with it and each other. I look forward to being with all who are called to this experience this year!

With Deep Appreciation,

Karen Renée Robb
