Watching and learning what this new form of drumming therapy is doing for us has been a fruitful illuminating trip. I am passing on what we have learned in the drumming therapies because this is an on going evolution of how we can upgrade our own operating system using rhythm and trance and downloading wisdom to our heart drive. But before we can do this, we need to make room in our beings for a new mentality. This involves releasing memory space being used by our past. The way the drum has made this accessible is simple yet fascinating. When we set up a judgement free space for drumming, we create a new definition in our intellect of what it is to do something creative and not judge ourselves for doing this, as well as not judging what we have created while in this sacred creative space with the drum. Once our belief system sees that this non judgmental form of seeing the world is valid and pleasant, it can then be transferred over to our self help psychology department in our personal survival mind. This new value system redefines our self image without self judgmental limitations. This new operating system takes over without any disruption because it is accepting more of what is possible. We become better and our drumming improves too!
