"Krista's ability to demonstrate entrain and teach the drum without ever losing touch with the sacred, ancient roots of the practice is a true gift.  Her class is part of the voice of the ancestress, calling us home to the powerful mystery of belonging to an endless lineage of holy women and mothers."
Jumana Sophia

"Krista Holland~historian, instructor, mentor, story-teller, spiritual-guide, community builder, and, frame drum teacher.  I found your relaxed sharing style so rich in nourishing knowledge and exquisite drumming techniques.  Your fingers dancing the beat, I felt I was listening to the transmission of arcane wisdom through "cha brushing" sounds of parchment pages turning inside the lost library of Alexandria as you de-coded & translated the alchemy of hidden treasures.
Your words-An art form
Your drumming-Soul/spirit food
Your presence-Heartfelt, timeless, spacious"
Elise Lockhart,  M.ED

"Sacred Drumming in the exquisite atmosphere of the Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center met all of my dreams and expectations. Krista Holland is a gifted teacher who offers fascinating information while balancing it expertly with lovely experiential learning."

"This entire retreat gives us a taste of the transformational potential in women's mythic drumming, as Krista teaches it. Combined with gentle yoga and the beauty of Ghost Ranch, it is a uniquely powerful experience. I would come again and again, if I could.  p.s. It works for all ages

"This Mythic Drumming workshop brought me back in touch with my original rhythm and essence and I will be forever grateful for the true, clear and loving way that Krista channeled the teachings of Sacred Drumming. It awakened the deep, subtle and powerful energies of my heart!"

"I began a journey of healing, reuniting, honoring, remembering my inner feminine prior to this retreat but it was here that I finally began to feel ease and joy in the journey. She had been shoved into the shadows and the circle of this retreat created a safe space for her to step into the light."
