Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

THE CEREMONIAL DRUM ::: Indigenous Cultures of the Americas & Canada know & use the drum as the center of all songs, as the great communicator & healer. It is the catalyst for the Spirit of the songs to rise up to the Creator so that the prayers in those songs reach where they were meant to go. At all times, the sound of the drum brings completeness, awe, excitement, solemnity, deep inner relaxation, strength, courage, and the fulfillment to the songs. Every thing, every human action, & every energy revolves in rhythm. It is Mother Earths heartbeat giving her approval to those living upon her. It draws the Eagle to it, who carries the message to Creator.

DRUM CIRCLES::: "From the Shamans of Mongolia, to the Minianka healers of West Africa, & Indigenous Cultures across the Americas, therapeutic rhythm techniques have been used for thousands of years to create & maintain physical, mental & Spiritual health."
