Drum Journey

Mindful Bear Apps
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.
