Album Notes
This unique recording uses the drum and bullroarer to support the listener in making shamanic journeys. The bullroarer is a flat elliptical shaped piece of wood attached to a cord that produces a whirring trance inducing drone when whirled through the air. Bullroarers produce a range of infrasonics, extremely low frequency sound waves (20 Hz or less) that are picked up by the cochlea (labyrinth) of the ear and stimulate a wide range of euphoric, trance states. The swirling drone complements the pulsating drum, thereby boosting the auditory driving and sonic effect. Entranced by the droning bullroarer and transported by the driving beat of the drum; the shamanic traveler journeys to the inner planes of consciousness and back. The journey ends with a callback. Headphones Recommended.

The shamanic journey is a time-honored method of inner consultation. It is a way of communicating with your inner self and retrieving information. Your inner self is in constant communication with all aspects of your environment, seen and unseen. You need only journey within to find answers to your questions.

Begin your journey by sitting in a dimly lit space and wearing headphones. Reflect for a moment on the purpose of your journey, and then begin listening to the recording. Focus your attention on the sound of the drum and bullroarer, then close your eyes and feel yourself being carried away by the sounds. Once you enter a trance state, you may experience a change in body temperature, feel energy flowing through your body, or find yourself twitching or rocking. It is not uncommon to hear sounds or voices. You may see colorful patterns, symbolic images, or dreamlike visions.

When you hear the sound of the callback, begin your return journey. Try to retrace the same route back; otherwise you might have trouble remembering the details of your journey. In some cases, your journey experiences will be clear and easy to understand. At other times, your journey may be dreamlike and full of symbolism. Interpret such journeys as you would any dream. Look for possible associations related to each symbol or image. The key is to observe whatever happens without trying to analyze the experience. Like developing any skill, journeying takes practice. Nothing may happen on your first journeys. You may only experience darkness. When this happens, simply try again at a different time. Step-by-step instructions for making shamanic journeys are explained in Michael's book, The Shamanic Drum.
