Shamanic Drumming

I find that laying back and listening to shamanic drumming affords me access to the imaginative world not unlike the freedom available through psychedelics or lucid dreaming. By taking shamanic flight, and afterward talking with a supportive partner about what I experienced, I was able to substantially reduce some post-traumatic stress-like symptoms associated with my experience of attending school.

Shamans are able to answer many kinds of questions, and to heal diseases with a strong mental or stress component.

It doesn’t take a lot of expensive materials or hours of training to embark on a shamanic trip. Of course, you are dealing with your psyche, and while that can be a garden of pleasure, things can also take a dire turn towards matters of life and death. Still, I think that most people would be better off to go ahead and risk an unguided shamanic flight, then to shuffle on as they are.

Here’s the technology: Repetitive drumming is key to perhaps 90% of the world’s shamanic practice. It bores your mind in a very specific way, which cuts out certain types of mentation and allows others to run unchecked. Shamanic Drumming.com will teach you the basics of entering shamanic trance and navigating the world it opens up… the website is not going to replace a live teacher but it will give you some clues to proceed upon. If you are inclined to explore, read about the shamanic paradigm and shamanic journeying. Invent a little ritual or imbibe some soft drugs to loosen yourself up.

Then lay back and listen to this track. Let us know what kind of experience you have!

  1. I don’t know about shamanic drumming but I sure had a weird experience listening to Ravi Shankar a couple of times . . . Once I had an extremely bizarre dream and upon telling it to someone she said, “Oh, you are so lucky! You had a shamanic dream!” And I was like, “Huh?” Because really if shamanic drumming led me to a mental experience anywhere near that dream I’m staying a thousand miles away from it.

    • If I recall your telling of the dream, you were reduced to bones… but you didn’t get to the second part where you get put back together! That would be unsettling for sure. You might want to find some kind of experienced guide before you revisit the territory.
