Excerpt from the Forward by Angeles Arrien, Ph.D. “Two ancient traditions come together in this book…the worldwide musical tradition of drumming, and the oldest wisdom book of China, known as the I Ching or Book of Changes. The person who has brought these two traditions together is Dr. Melinda Maxfield, whose research and doctoral dissertation has made a major contribution to ethnomusicology, health care, brain research and education…..Dr. Maxfield’s ingenious research and recognition of the drum’s restorative and balancing capabilities, combined with the I Ching’s 64 hexagrams used as drumming patterns, creates a dynamic, magnetic and yin-yang balance and brings harmony and well being to our lives.” The proceeds from the sale of this book help fund the activities of the Angeles Arrien Foundation for Cross-Cultural Education and Research.
