About The Book

A complete guide to shamanic drumming for enhancing Reiki practice.

Advance your Reiki practice to the next level with vibrational sound healing and shamanism combined in the beat of the drum.

In this guide, Reiki master and shamanic teacher Fay Johnstone explores in detail the practices and benefits of shamanic drum journeying in the context of Reiki healing. She shares Reiki drum techniques and step-by-step shamanic practices to bring empowerment, healing, connection, and clarity to you and your clients. She explains how the vibration of a drum enhances the efficacy of a treatment by inviting the ­client’s energy field back to its optimal vibration as well as inducing relaxation and the release of tension. She shows how drumming allows a Reiki practitioner to dive into shamanic journeying for deeper guidance and insight on a client, and she reveals how vibration and sound can strengthen the energetic potencies of Reiki symbols.

Exploring the magic of the drum, the author explains the essence of shamanic journeying, including how to set intentions, access and navigate the three shamanic worlds, meet spirit guides, and connect deeply with your intuition. Outlining the protocols of drumming for yourself and others, she presents a shamanic Reiki treatment flow protocol for the basic structure of a session, whether in person or distant healing.

Highlighting personal healing practices with the drum, the author details exercises that combine with Reiki self-care and shamanic journeying to release negative energy, reclaim power, shift mindset, and manifest goals. She offers simple practical exercises to restore connection to our true self through drumming with nature, exploring the cosmos, and honoring the ancestors. She also presents guidelines for conducting ceremony and holding drum circles or Reiki shares for group healing and shamanic journeying.

Welcoming Reiki practitioners into the rhythm of the drum and the path of shamanism, this book will inspire you to journey deeper into the unseen web that connects us all.

Raves and Reviews

“What I love about Shamanic Reiki Drumming is the beautiful way Fay integrates key healing elements into her practice. Connection to Spirit and being the ‘hollow bone’ are what allow and encourage healing to occur. Fay explains these basics very well and then guides the reader into deeper realms of drumming work, including its evocation of altered states to enter the Universal. Always present, and absolutely essential, are the constant currents of intuition and intention so the reader can access potent and lasting healing. You will enjoy this well-written and knowledgeable book.”
