|The Distant Drums website is gone. We can find no active websites for Skyline Journey nor Distant Drums. This program operated using both names. The phone numbers associated with this program have been disconnected. We believe this program to be closed. (April 15th, 2015) This program appears to have changed names and phone numbers and to now be operating as Eagle Quest. For more information, see www.heal-online.org/skyline.htm.|
*(Distant Drums Beginnings, like many other programs in this industry, keeps a "tight lid" on any specific information regarding their staff, qualifications, and practices. Please contact us with the names of any staff of which you have firsthand knowledge or experience. Thank you for your help.)
