Isabella Verbruggen, priestess, has been teaching framedrumming since 1999. Inspired by the ancient tradition of this musical instrument, she taught herself the different techniques that comes with it. Over the years Isabella translated the book written by Layne Redmond ‘When the Drummers Were Women’ from English to Dutch. In the initial years she kept herself busy with developing her own style and method that transformed framedrumming from an ancient ritual to a ceremonial way. Nowadays her focus lies on implementing framedrumming as a worthy, spiritual part of everyday life in rhythm with the Wheel of the Year for creating sacred spaces, for pleasure, for healing and introspection. Besides her achievements, Isabella is a loving mother of two daughters and two sons and of nine grandchildren.
