Hand Drumming For Physical Health & Spiritual Well Being


Why does the sound of drumming invoke such a strong reaction deep within the human psyche?

Could it be that as drumming was the first music created by humans, it played an integral part in the psychological well being and quality of life of the individual and subsequently the early communities?

Why did it evolve into an essential part of community survival through solo and group healing, celebration, mourning, warfare, and worship rituals?

Could it be that it provided the link between physical and spiritual survival?
