Drum Journey

Mindful Bear Apps
Screenshot #1
You've found Drum Journey, the first app for shamanic journeying.

Shamanic journeying, as you probably already know, is a kind of insight meditation.  It’s a spiritual practice that combines visualization with acoustic accompaniment, usually fast drumming or rattling.

Drum Journey works like a timer; dial in the journey duration, set your options, and tap Start.  Included in the app are several professionally-produced drum and rattle tracks, and you can also import your own from iTunes.

Features:
- flexible journey duration, from 5 minutes to an hour
- choice of drumming styles (single, double, or with rattle)
- adjustable tempo (slow, normal, and fast)
- adjustable instrument volumes
- high quality drumming tracks
- works with AirPort Express and AppleTV (via AirPlay)
- Optimized graphics for iPhone Retina screens
- light up the globe; share your location with other Drum Journey users

For centuries, shamans have used journeying to gain insight and clarity. I was inspired to create this app while participating in the three year program of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.

Note: This app does not teach shamanic journey practices. Visit the Mindful Bear website for links to shamanic educators, books, and practitioners.

What's new in version 2.2
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.

- improved drumming audio quality
- added 'very slow' tempo option
- added advanced tempo options (wider tempo range & fine adjustments)
- imported tracks can be tempo adjusted too

Our verdict: Great!
  • + Drum Journey is a highly rated app (4.5-star).
  • + The app is currently free, instead of its regular price of $1.99.
