Shamans often use drumming as a means to merge mind, body and spirit. The drum provides a way to access a higher power. The focus is on integrating healing for the whole body at the physical, spiritual, and emotional levels.
- Releases Negative Feelings
Drumming is a form of self-expression. This powerful tool can be used to literally drum out your feelings. Negative thoughts and emotions form energy blockages in our lives. The physical act of striking the drum can remove those blocks. It’s even used in treatment therapy to help addicts in managing their thoughts and emotions.
- Be Here Now
Drumming puts you in the present moment. There is no past or future when you are drumming, no worries, concerns or problems, only the present.
Drumming allows for personal transformation as the drum stimulates creative expression through the connection.
