Sacred Drumming has been used for thousands of years across many cultures. The raw hide from the animals our Ancestors killed for meat was never wasted. Dwellings, bags and clothes were made from skins and leather.
The bent wood hoop covered with hide, when dry and taut, makes a very simple yet profound sacred instrument. Easy to carry, to use around a person whether sitting or lying down.
The hoop drum has been used in sacred ceremony for clearing space, many types of ritual and healing.
Used also for the focus through intention when meditating.
For anchoring the body when using trance beat.
To call on the architypes behind the form of trees and plants.
To help pull a group together, to help harmony in a work place.
The beats used in sacred drumming are simple. Based on the Heart beat, at different speeds 1, 2, 3 0r 4 beats per second help to create energies for our body and brain to become syncronised for healing or journeying and much more. Much work has been done in the field of research to link drumming with positive affects on our body and brain. Click here for more on drumming and the Brain.
