Editorial Reviews


"I like I Ching: The Tao of Drumming. The drum is the presence of ha-moo-low-nay, which is how the Infinite is seeing the unfolding of the deeper levels of the vast self." --Joseph Rael, author of Being and Vibration

"Amazing work, given the role of music in the lives of many." --Anthony Judge, author of Periodic Pattern of Human Life

"Ever since I first saw the book I Ching, The Tao of Drumming by Michael Drake, I have been fascinated by it. It's one more way to experience the connection of all things." --Arlene Arnold, The New Times

"A fascinating multi-cultural synergism of thought regarding the rhythmic pulses of the universe and their relationship to divination and drumming." -- Jonathan Goldman, author of Healing Sounds

"A fascintaing idea, especially for I Ching aficionados, and another good excuse to put your hands on those healing skins." -- NAPRA ReView, Spring 1998

"Michael has done us all a hugh kindness by compiling this exhaustive work into one volume in clear concise language." -- Dru Kristel, author of Breath Was the First Drummer

"I recently bought your book and CD for the Tao of Drumming. I am a martial arts teacher of a Daoist Kung Fu system. My arts are based on Chi Cultivation which I found that your Tao of Drumming fits in well with as the vibrations of the drum will enter certain organs for its healing benefits plus much more. So I needed to write to you to thank you on a huge effort and great job on the book and drumming." --Garry Hearfield, Shaolin Yau Kung Mun Kung Fu Academy

From the Author

"This book is the culmination of my quest to understand the power of rhythm. Rhythm, as a path, has led me to explore the drum ways of many of the world's shamanic and spiritual traditions. As I learned the rhythms of various world cultures, I found the same rhythmic qualities underlying all of them. Like the colors of the rainbow, each culture has its own hue or identity, yet each is a part of the whole. Although the focus or intent differs from culture to culture, rhythmic drumming invariably has the same power and effects in all traditions. The resonant qualities and attributes of these rhythmic phenomena are universal and come into play whenever we drum. These powerful effects and their relationship to the rhythm archetypes of the I Ching are what I attempt to describe in Part One. Part Two is my shamanic interpreatation of the 64 hexagrams from a rhythmic perspective. This book is my invitation to all who wish to experience the power of rhythm." Michael Drake
