Drumming and a Handbook for the soul

Unfortunately, society does not generally allow us to express the wilder, instinctual side of our natures-our soulful and spiritual selves. Neither does society encourage us to explore the possibilites of body-spirit unity. As a result, frustrated and negative forms of our spiritual forces may begin to build up within us."

An activity like drumming can bridge the gap between the inspiration that comes from higher consciousness and the reality of daily life. Drumming helps us manifest that inspiration as something real and tangible, something that can be felt and shared with other people. It doesn't make any difference if you're a Catholic, or a Shaman, or a Buddhist; you can sit down with a circle of people and just start to drum. And if you do this, not worrying about how you sound, not worrying about the fact that you have never played a drum in your entire life, you will realize that the first music any of us ever heard was the heartbeat of our mother when we were in her womb.

Drumming reminds us of our original nature. Through drumming, we begin to remember who we really are.
