I can only say I am so happy I bought this book - bought from a seller who specified they had the cd and both book and cd are excellent. This is the first book on shamanic drumming I've read that takes the drumming beyond trance drumming (for journeying), that approaches the drumming experience quite holistically. Im bought this in preparation for finding my first drum and am deeply glad that I did.

This book arrived without the CD that went with it. Kind of a shame as this was partly the point of the purchase. Would be good for sellers to indicate in their product description whether or not a book still has it's original CD.

A great book about drumming from a shamanic point of view. 30 Oct 2004
By Krazyshaman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book, very well illustrated with photos. It is as much about shamanism from a Native American perspective as it is about drumming, providing information about the four directions, consecrating sacred space, and many other topics. The CD that comes with this book is very high quality and enjoyable as well.

A beautiful book to experience as well as to read. 6 Oct 2006
By V. Fryer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sacred Drumming is a quality book with beautiful illustrations as well as beautiful words. Not only does it give valuable information about how to drum, but Sacred Drumming provides additional information about the beliefs and ideas that contribute to drumming being the sacred experience that it is. While people often find these ideas shrouded in a cloak of mystery, Sacred Drumming presents this information in an interesting and easy to understand way. I always feel good after reading from this book. The CD that comes with it is a great gift as well.

The most concise source for putting together drum circles or learning of the healing power of drumming 14 Dec 2013
By T. Trevelyan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Clear, concise and well-organized, Sacred Drumming addresses the spiritual; practical and health benefits of drumming. Whether you drum in a group or in solitude, this book addresses many of the questions and concerns people have when approaching drumming as a healing modality. From selecting,buying and caring for your drum, to the function of different drums, Steven Ash guides you from this very first phase all the way into cleansing and blessing it. He speaks of the power of intention, using the drum in ceremony and healing; and incorporating drumming into your daily existence. The book is packed with extremely valuable Native American Wisdom that is mostly missing in other books of this kind. Through different rhythms, and traditions, Ash sets you on the right path to exploring drumming and finding the best way to incorporate it into your life. I don't believe the drumming music comes with the Kindle edition, but is included in the physical book on a CD.

I have read numerous other books on Sacred Drumming. This one is by far the best.

A good book on native culture, not so much on drumming 26 Feb 2006
By Marylin M. Butorac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was hoping for an instructional book on the actual technique of drumming. This book is more an overview of the historical and cultural aspects. It does a good job of that, but if you're looking for drumming instruction, this is not it.
Great music! 11 Mar 2014

I think we've nearly worn this out listening to it and passing it around to friends. Its very relaxing and enjoyable to listen to.
