What is Shamanic Drumming & Journeying?

'Shamanism is not a course

but a life journey' - Alberto Villoldo.

My first experience with shamanic drumming and journeying was 19 years ago; it was a profound, mind-opening and powerful experience. I have since used shamanic journeys throughout my life to connect to deep wisdom within, to help guide decisions and seek advice when at a crossroads.

What is Shamanic Drumming & Journeying?

Shamanic drumming and journey is one of the oldest spiritual practices known to man. With proper guidance, anyone can take a shamanic journey to connect with the wisdom of the earth and our ancestors to receive guidance and healing.


When we beat a drum, we actively connect with the heartbeat of Mother Earth. This is why ancient shamans drummed. The rhythmical beating of a drum is one of the oldest practices of humankind. The beat of the first drum perhaps reminded our distant ancestors of that very first rhythm we heard, the comforting heartbeat, of our deep connection to the body of our mother and to Earth itself. 

Scientific research shows that in nine minutes of steady drumming, most people can access this altered state. For some people, it takes longer, and for some, it takes less time.

​Shamanic journey drumming is a magical tool that opens the doors of different realities for us. We are not alone, and we are part of a larger web of life. Everything in our universe is connected; the actions of one species or element can have ripple effects on the entire ecosystem. Shamanism is a celebration of this life interconnectedness.

In these times of change and uncertainty, the beat of the drum calls us home. Because everything that you are looking for is inside you, never outside.

What to Expect from Shamanic Drumming & Journeying?

Shamanic drumming and journeying is a way of finding answers, information, healing, wisdom and knowledge, as well as guidance or help with one’s personal life.


  • You will be invited to lie down, relax, and will be guided through intention, meditation and the drum beat to start your shamanic journey. 

  • The drum's steady beat helps guide you into a state of altered consciousness, allowing you to access other realms of reality.

  • During the Journey, you may meet and gain wisdom from guides regarded as ancestors, elders, gods, goddesses, shamans, spirit guides, power animals and angels. 

  • You will then have time to reflect and share your experience to help process and develop your practice.
