This beautiful frame drum is for shamanic rituals as well as music, movement, and dance. Many cultures throughout the world practice shamanic drumming, it is an ancient ritual that uses a simple, repetitive rhythm. This rhythm builds in intensity until it reaches a set number of beats per minute. The ascending tempo then helps the shaman to enter a trance-like state. Which then allows them to journey between the physical and spiritual worlds.
Practitioners progress through a range of trance-like states to enable healing, self-expression, and relaxation. Drumming can help to improve anxiety and reduce stress. While also releasing tension and lowering blood pressure. Once the shaman is ready to exit the trance, they slow the tempo and the drumming’s intensity until they become conscious of the world once more.
