THE ANCIENT ART OF SHAMANIC DRUMMING
Shamanic drumming is played on a ‘frame’ drum or ‘Medicine’ drum. ‘Medicine’ is used in the ancient Native American sense, from the teachings of the Medicine Wheel – a time-honoured spiritual practice which guides you to a deeper understanding of yourself, to your loved ones, the world and the universe… Jana’s drumming & chanting circles are based on the numeric system called the ‘Ancient 20 Count’, playing repetitive Shamanic rhythms which take you into a deep trance.
WHAT IS THE MEDICINE WHEEL?
The Medicine Wheel represents Humankind – like a compass, it is our tool for measuring the infinite. It is our blueprint for balancing spirit and matter in our lives and for understanding the wisdom of our Divine natures. The focal point is the development of our consciousness from the sacred five to the sacred twenty.
The twenty sacred powers of the Medicine Wheel are the gateways of perception that make the experience of Oneness possible for all humans. Some gateways are visible and some are invisible… both will show us complete reality when they are opened. When we are fully conscious and empowered as human beings (the sacred five), then we can understand our RELATIONSHIP to each of the powers.
The vibrations of the drum have a deep, transformative effect on the body, bringing about profound and lasting changes. As a form of sound healing, it is undoubtedly one of the most accessible methods to experience. The drum is an ancient tool used by our ancestors throughout time. It is a way of understanding the subtle language of sound and vibration.
