“I have been blessed to have crossed paths with Chuck Wilson, creator of Wakan Drums, during a Shamanic Reiki workshop. This connection was obviously orchestrated by spirit, and I have recently had the honor of becoming one of his “drum keepers” for a sacred Elk drum that he created for me with his allys in all realms. His tracking for empowering my medicine path was impeccable. The drum brings so many layers of healing, honoring, magical depth, and connection to the world of nature and spirit. I know this will continue to bless, unfold, and inform my healing journey and those it touches, for the rest of my life. I am so deeply grateful to Chuck for creating this sacred work and all it represents.”
10-16-2020 - Polina Shar - Chuck’s personal drum Frejya projects a powerful feminine energy, a pure love, a healing vibration. In a short simple journey session, Frejya’s pulsations shook my energy centers, heating them and assisting me in accessing my own healing force. Chuck has unlocked a world inside of himself, and he shares that to promote healing and connection in others. He has a kind, humble and playful nature. Chuck has a great gift for creating beautiful drums and for promoting healing in others.
10-16-2020 - Steven Hay - Chuck is a gifted craftsman, engineer and solver of problems. He is also a man deeply connected to the world of spirit and energy. Chuck has merged his diverse gifts to give birth to drums which are works of art and are profoundly filled with the mysteries and power of multiple spiritual traditions. In his humble manner, Chuck channels healing energy, integrity, and vision.
10-15-2020 - Pam Brown - I will say this. .. the craftsmanship of the Wakan Drum is extremely high! Visually it’s a unique, one of a kind piece of art that is so enjoyable to look at and appreciate natures beauty. As a healing tool, it will help you connect to your spiritual teams and assist you on your path. I highly recommend Wakan Drums!!
3-7-2020 – Andrew - I discovered Chuck online as I was looking for guidance on my first drum and went to meet with him and see his drums. In a word - amazing. Chuck has an immense knowledge and wisdom in bringing these drums to the world. Chuck shared about his path and how the drums are a reflection of that path. Read about his path in The Drum Maker section on his site. There is healing and energy in the drums. I was given the opportunity to sit and hold Freyja and the energy coming from the drum connected immediately with my heart. There was no mistake about it. Have never had that happen before. I also was able to meet Story Stick (the flute). Again – such a great vibration and energy. Thank you Chuck for the time and wisdom that you shared. Your work is simply amazing and I know that each drum will bring deep healing to everyone it encounters.
9/16/2019 Here is a very nice comment from one of the drum makers that love my frames... "Out of the box powerful! I make spirit drums to be a connection tool for people to the spirit realms. Each time a drum is played with intention the power of the drum grows and its medicine gets stronger.
The Wakan drum frames provide an incredible energy so that even a newly created drum has powerful medicine that you can feel an immediate connection to your heart center the moment you pick it up. It is the emotion in your prayers and intentions when you play a drum that carry the prayers to spirit and these frames open your heart up for a true emotional connection to other realms. These are truly special and I am honored any time i am asked to create a drum with a Wakan frame.

I attached a pic of how it came out, albeit a top view. As you know, I’m not into painting drums, but this one really wanted it..."

I highly recommend Chuck Wilson of Shamanic Reiki Center. I consulted him regarding an area of loss I'd been struggling with for years, and experienced immediate and powerful healing as a result of his work. Even better, a week or so later I used a technique I learned from him to enable equally potent healing in another area of my life. Those events took place five months ago, and the problems/hurt areas have not re-manifested. Chuck is very down-to-earth and non-dramatic, but connects with very potent allies. If I ever need deep spiritual healing again I will definitely arrange another session with him.
Just a quick review.. Wanted to say thank you for the wonderful journey. Went to all four corners to return home to the table to feast with my soul family. Was a beautiful walk. Freyja is amazing also, she definitely has her own heart beat, thank you for sharing your story and your gifts. Your an amazing light and gift to this planet. Thank you

I had the pleasure of working with Chuck at Shamandome 2018. We saw dozens of people and I was impressed again and again with the healing medicine held within the drum Freyja. Often it was enough for someone to simply hold the drum to their heart, and the channels would open for deep true healing. Freyja was an integral part of this process, and Chuck, as her keeper, is a gentle powerful healer in his own right.
Blessings to you and your work!

I met Chuck unexpectedly while visiting the Shaman dome at the 2018 Burning Man
festival this year.
After discovering our meeting was probably not happenstance,
I had the opportunity to experience the powerful energy and healing of his drum
While holding the heart centered drum to me, I felt instantly connected and energized,
and a clarity rose deep inside me of something I had been grappling with for a long
time. The drum conduits spiritual healing to those who embrace her.

It's in his resonant, comforting voice....it's in his profoundly unguarded, loving Heart.....it's in his beating, bear-hug of a drum Freyja. Together, they shift you.
My dear friend Chuck, his guides, and Freyja - they show you....they hold and heal you....
You come away with new connections to old understandings. Connections that make sense of past relationships to those in the world and to those gone over. Connections that rid you of old trauma, as well as connections that reinforce your gratitude to past blessings. In short, connections that sooth your worry, make sense of the present, and clarify your path.
In the five years since I've known Chuck, I've seen him evolve into an ever more generous, vulnerable, brave, humble man. He's accepted his role as healer in the world with a grace far beyond expectation for one who has seen as much change and experienced as much loss and pain as he has. He is here to help....and make that "to Help" with a capital "H"! You can express your deepest fears to Chuck and always be met with unflinching calm, kindness, and a thoughtful interpretation that is unexpectedly, wholly relieving.
During my times with Chuck sharing Reiki, and even before he had put Shamanic structure around his gifts and brought Freyja into this world, I've always experienced major specific shifts in my energy system. Something about Chuck's focused, heart-centered attention engaged my trust and confirmed my safety enough for me to allow myself to journey and experience pent-up emotion, minds-eye visions, and deep release. Through these came the understandings that enable me move forward in my life with new self-assurance and resolve.
And now with Freyja....holy moly! .....in addition to Chuck's perceptive nudges, a second resonant, deep voice beats! In Chuck's steady hands, Freyja creates a penetrating resonance in which my Heart is joyfully rent open and comforted - ready for my own inspection, and ready, right there and then, to accept healing from Source in the form of new installations - energetic downloads which repair it's broken connections and layers that were laying dormant waiting for a kind hand. Simply put, in my times with Chuck and Freyja, my Heart is always transformed.
I trust my life and my Heart to them both. You can too.

"Chuck performed a marvelous one-minute manipulation on me with his extraordinary drum, which instantly transported me to a seminal event in my childhood and reminded me that bringing happiness to others comes from my being happy."
Shamanic Practitioner, Seattle WA
Center for Light body Healing
"It is with great warmth and assurance that I recommend Chuck as a reiki and energy healing practitioner. I have known Chuck since 2015, when he first spoke to me about feeling and sensing energies. He has fully embraced that part of himself and that longs to bring healing to others. I know he has spent the better part of two years caring for his late beloved friend Sandy during her fight with cancer. I know this experience has deepened his ability to heal and understand other’s pain.
In working with me as a student, I have no question about Chuck’s connection to the spirit world and his abilities.
I encourage him to bring his energy healing out into the world and for others to experience his gentle and caring nature."
You are a sensitive and potent healer, and it was an honor to have you with us. (referencing Shamanic Reiki I/II Training - Port Townsend, WA)
Chuck's reiki helped me tremendously! He was kind, patient and compassionate. After the reiki I felt a connection to my spirit I hadn't felt before, a deeper understanding of who I am, and an overwhelming sense of peace. What a gift. Highly recommend!
