Notes

Michael Drake presents drumming as a practice capable of inducing a "transcendent state of unity consciousness" where one becomes a Hollow Bone, an individual who has or can enter a trance state "without their personal ego. This non-ego hollowness makes a way for Spirit to use them as a healing tool. In this way, the shaman is a channel for higher consciousness."[1]

Michael Drake suggests a tempo of three to four beats per second. "Focus your attention on the sound of the drum, thereby stilling the chatter in your mind. Allow the drum to empty you - become one with the drum."[2]

Shamanic drumming facilitates Channeling, specifically Trance Channeling, a disconnected form of Intramonadic Communication. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, but the long term goal is not Trance Connection but Perfected Connection.
