    "A fascinating multicultural synergism of thought regarding the rhythmic pulses of the universe and their relationship to divination and drumming." --Jonathan Goldman, author of Healing Sounds. "Michael has done all of us a huge kindness by compiling this exhaustive work into one volume in clear concise language." --Dru Kristel, author of Breath Was the First Drummer. "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. Drake instructs the drummer to create rhythmic patterns. These can be assembled to drum the four elements, the four directions, and the I Ching hexagrams. "It is a synthesis, a blending of rhythmic knowledge from Taoism, shamanism, and the philosophical wisdom of the I Ching." The inspiration that comes from these philosophies can now be felt through the vibration of drumming." --Arlene Arnold, The New Times... More > "I like what Michael is doing and saying in 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 Beautiful Painted Arrow Rael, Ute-Tewa artist and author of Being and Vibration. A true "way" of Drumming. Michael Drake truly captures "the way" of the drum and also I believe our emotional and spiritual connection to it. From the ancient ceremonial drums of early man until modern times, this "way" of the drum has not changed within us - and Michael Drake captures this in all of his books. This book actually has rhythmic exercises and pattern the reader can learn and use as a guide to finding their own "way". As a lifelong drummer, and student of related speed bag rhythms, I found it very interesting and enlightening. --Alan Kahn Amazon Reviews "Amazing work, given the role of music in the lives of many." --Anthony Judge, author of Periodic Pattern of Human Life "It's a fascinating idea, especially for I Ching aficionados, and another good excuse to put your hands on those healing skins." --NAPRA ReView< Less
