Shamanic Drumming and Journeying
Shamanic drumming is drumming for the purpose of inducing a range of trance states in order to connect with the spiritual dimension of reality.
Shamanic journeying is a way of communicating with your inner or spirit self and retrieving information. Your inner self is in constant communication with all aspects of your environment, seen and unseen. You need only journey within to find answers to your questions. You should have a question or objective in mind from the start. Shamanic journeying is usually undertaken for purposes of divination, for personal healing, to meet one's power animal or spirit guide, or for any number of other reasons. After the journey, you must then interpret the meaning of your trance experience.
The drum, sometimes called the shaman’s horse, provides a simple and effective way to induce trance states. When a drum is played at an even tempo of three to four beats per second for at least fifteen minutes, most people report that they can journey successfully even on their first attempt. Transported by the driving beat of the drum; the shamanic traveler journeys to the inner planes of consciousness; the lower world where you find power animals and elementals, the middle world which is the here and now and the upper world to meet with guides, angels and ancestors.

At the next Shamanic Tribes Gathering on Sunday 27th May 2018, we will be joined by Susanne Wunsch who will facilitate a spiral circle; a healing circle with shamanic drums, archaic instruments, percussion and songs
Susanne is based in Co.Clare and hosts healing and drumming circles in the area. Susanne has been been playing the drum since 1999 and has accumulated many teachings and experiences throughout her life from Astrology and Reiki to Sweatlodges and Drumming.
Susanne will lead the circle with music and drumming and all are welcome to attend.
This is a gentle and introductory healing circle.
