Drumming goes back to the early days of mankind around the world. By using a drum people could communicate more than just by voice. After all, the deep tones produced from the hollow of the wood and the stretched-out hide of an animal was rich and loud, and the sound would carry far across the land.
Drums were used as tools to give warning or signal, and it was believed that the energy of the animal used to make the drum gave the drum even greater power. Healing drums were also used to invoke spirit. Imagine the strength of the buffalo, the speed of the deer, or the stance of the elk within your drumming music.
Drums and Prayers
Drumming was also used in ceremonies along with smoke and the sound of the flute. Believed to be heard by the great spirit drumming was melodic, almost channelled. The beating was meant shift the individual into a trance-like state, a deeper meditative peace of mind.
Many have found drumming to be very healing. Science has shown us that the repetitive sound that emulates the heartbeat increases our awareness and ability to learn. Sound healing also affects our immune system, and helps us to relax both mentally and physically.
