Power Animal Drumming: Calling the Spirits by Michael Drake.
Some are so skilled at
drumming, they can duplicate the rhythms of various animals. This is
used to facilitate a shapeshifting, an aligning with the archetypal
forces represented by the animal.
Power animal drumming is a shamanic way to evoke and internalize animal archetypes. An animal archetype represents the spirit and attributes of the entire species of that animal. Shamanism is the endeavor to cultivate ongoing relationships with power animals to gain insight, healing methods, and other vital information that can benefit the community. When an animal spirit is invoked, there is often an accompanying rhythm that comes through. Shamans frequently use these unique rhythms to summon their helping spirits for the work at hand. The spirit calling rhythms on this CD evolved over many years through me and fellow shamanic circle drummers as gifts from our animal relations to all who seek the oneness of everything. Evocative drum rhythms, rattles, flutes, didgeridoos, animal calls, nature sounds, and synthesizers connect you with the collective strength and wisdom of power animals.

Medicine Music! I highly recommend this therapeutic recording. The
healing rhythms resonate deep within and stimulate the release of
unexpressed feelings and emotions. The music has wonderful
transportive qualities; resounding drums and plaintive flutes lull
one into a dreamy spirit flight. Many tracks can be looped for
continuous play for extended meditation or journeying. I recommend
headphones for the richest listening experience. Well done Michael

"Turtle Shaker" has me 'air shaking/rattling' my empty hands.
Spirit-filled, I slowly circle the hearth room of my home. Then
come mourning doves calling. Now I am walking through cottonwood
leaves among the elder trees beside salmon stream. Eagle beat lifts
me up and carries me high above the Earth, soaring, seeing. And on
the drum beats go--even as they call in these power animal spirits,
these guides and protectors of my spirit, I am transported to other
realms where my heart is gladdened and my spirit at peace and
enlivened, refreshed. As the drum beats roll on, cultures call to
me from around the globe, "We are One;" Michael's gift to all of
us. My heart is filled with joy anew, reconnected to my roots. My
deepest gratitude goes to you Michael."
