What is a Hoop Drum Journey?
A brief explanation.
Journeying is a cross-cultural healing method that has been practised by shamanic healers throughout the ages.
Journeying allows you to connect with your deep inner wisdom and knowledge
Lying down comfortably with a cloth over the eyes and listening to the steady beat of a drum at 120 to 130 beats per minute will put our brain waves into a theta state.
You can then enter into a light, aware trance much like lucid dreaming. Each person's experience of this state varies.Some people experience vivid sensations or sounds or colours whilst some might have nothing at the time but later in dream time things may come through.
Shamans throughout time and cultures see the world as a tree
The roots go to the Lower world
The trunk is the Middle world
The branches reach to the Upper world
We may Journey to any of the worlds and seek out and meet our Power Animals,Spirit Guides, or Ancestors to ask them questions about things, events for ourselves and our lives.
The Drum Journeys we hold, tend to be a more grounding energy, where the gongs etc can tend to take you higher.
Hence we do the both now, and on occasions use them both together in the sound bath meditations.
All you need to do, is the same as the sound baths.
Bring your yoga mats, blankets and anything else you may need to make yourself comfortable, lay back and be taken on the inner journey by the beats of the drum.
