Tips on Caring for Shamanic Drums

I just posted a new article on Houston Shamanism, "6 Tips on Caring for Shamanic Drums in Houston," but these tips are applicable to just about any natural skin drums anywhere.

There are tips on drum storage, safely transporting your drum, the dangers of too much heat, what to do about too much moisture, using the right kind of beater to avoid damaging your drum, and avoiding undesirable metaphysical influences.

I hope you will stop by, take a look, and leave a comment.

Choosing a Drum for Shamanic Journeying

Shamanic drumming is one way to use sound in the healing process. The drumming itself does part of the work, and the shamanic practitioner does the rest.

I just posted a couple of articles on my new column, Houston Shamanism Examiner: Shamanic drumming for journeying, and How to choose a shamanic drum.

I hope you will stop by and take a look.
