Be Tao Now™ ~ I Ching Drumming for Triumphant Living! is the first and only iOS app to combine all 64 Hexagrams of over 5,000 year-old I Ching wisdom with special drumming patterns and guided meditations based on the eight elements of the I Ching

Self Improvement and Guidance

  • Listening to the drumming of the ancient patterns establishes inner rhythmic alignment so you can navigate through challenging times with greater ease, peace and grace.
  • Helps you manage change and understand the various situations in your life.
  • Thoughtful translation makes the old wisdom more accessible and applicable to modern times.

Increased Focus and Productivity

  • Delivers an experience so you can feel the transformation it helps you achieve.
  • Provides more than ten minutes of drumming of the elements of the I Ching so that you may achieve alpha state. This is proven to balance right and left brain, increase creativity and intuition, relieve stress and bring ease, peace and joy.
  • 100% Ad free so you can keep your mind/body focused on getting results.

Meditation or Quick Timeout

  • The solo drumming tracks can also be used as background sound for healing, inspiration, motivation, creativity and focus while doing anything you choose.
  • Provides guided meditations with specially-arranged music and nature sounds so all you have to do is sit and listen.


The app pairs the ancient tradition of drumming, which has been used in all indigenous cultures to improve relaxation, focus and healing, with the popular ancient Chinese Taoist oracle system of I-Ching to gain personal insights, reduce stress, enhance intuition and achieve harmony and balance.

The 64 drum patterns help you get in the zone of wellness, drawing from the eight elements of the I Ching, an ancient Taoist tradition known to be over 5,000 years old. Drumming stimulates both sides of the brain and has numerous mental, emotional and physical health benefits. Combining drumming with I Ching provides an empowering system that can be used for personal growth or mindfulness.

Spin the wheel, allow the app to choose a hexagram, and you have a daily guidance system. Or consciously choose one of the 64 drum patterns that feels right for you. Set the drumming time for up to infinity, and listen in meditation or while performing everyday tasks. Listen to the drumming to shift mood or thinking, to increase focus and productivity levels, to align with success or prosperity, or to quickly get in the best mental shape possible.
