MEADVIEW, AZ - March 17, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Mojave Drums ( is offering two unique premier weekend retreats where guests will use natural materials, including gourds and rawhide, to build a hand drum in one day and then use it to participate in a drum circle the next day. No musical experience or skill is required. The first retreat will be held Friday April 25 through Sunday April 27, and the second Friday May 9 through Sunday May 11, 2003. Additional dates will follow during the summer and fall.

Each retreat has a specific cultural theme, including Native American, African, and Polynesian. Musical entertainment keyed to the theme of that particular retreat will be performed using drums and assorted percussion instruments. The staff is a mixture of artists, craftspeople, and musicians; many of whom are Native Americans (Hualapai, Havasupai, Sioux). A professional drum circle facilitator leads the drum circle.

"I see the Retreat as a chance for guests to encounter cultural and artistic diversity while exploring the universal cultural phenomenon of drumming," says Loretta Veach, Mojave Drums' founder. "In addition to the relaxing and organic hands-on experience of making your own drum, we will be able to enjoy performances from a number of dancers and musicians from the nearby Hualapai Nation."

"For anybody who wants to get out of the cities, recharge their spiritual batteries, or just enjoy a drive into the wilderness, all of these things are a part of the retreat. Located on the western slopes, looking out over the mesa, there is ample space for creativity, and just plain relaxing."

Concludes Veach, "Drum circles are also excellent team-building tools, making Mojave Drums an ideal corporate retreat setting."

The Mojave Drum Retreats will be held on an 80-acre retreat located in the Mojave Desert near Meadview, Arizona in the Joshua Tree forest of Grapevine Mesa, at the extreme western end of the Grand Canyon. Meadview is on the eastern edge of Lake Mead, about 90 miles from Las Vegas.

Pricing for the first Mojave Drum Retreat is $375 per person, and $400 per person for the second retreat. Special events for corporate teams can be arranged, on request. Reservations require a $100 deposit with balance due 30 days prior to retreat event date. Each event is limited to 45 participants. All meals are provided and menus are created specially for each retreat. The retreat is remote and facilities are rustic, Facilities are limited to dry camping and RV parking.
