About This Show
The Archaic Drum Podcast, hosted by James Benton, is the premier show in presenting ideas, knowledge and ancient wisdom of both indigenous leaders and healers, and many radical and free thinking visionaries as well. The focus of the show is to present various pathways and solutions that would bring about a positive change within one's self, society and the world.
We must at last recognize that we are not bound or limited by external conditions. Our method of a wider encompassing transformation begins within, realizing that we must find a clear and stable center in order to engender any truly meaningful change for ourselves or our planet.

Jeffrey Wium’s work, studies and spiritual explorations have taken him around the world, providing firsthand experience with varying systems, ideologies and perceptual realities. In 1995, after ten years of intensive production schedules, location travel and living in metropolitan centers, Jeffrey moved to quieter environs to nurture a path of inner study. After an indepth study of Qigong in both the States and in China, he sought a deeper understanding in Tibet, Nepal and India, and received the Avaloketesvara initiation directly from the the Dalai Lama during his time in these regions of the world. He has trained and worked with a variety of healing/transformative modalities which have included, meditation, yoga, bio-geometric design, wilderness living skills and indigenous philosophy. Jeffrey began his education in Andean energy medicine in 2004 with academic programs and research expeditions as well as traditional apprenticeships in the Peruvian highlands. He has operated as a celestial Paqo since January 2007. Jeffrey offers talks, integrative programs, personal and professional consultations and health-centered retreats based on conscious living principles, experiential learning and non-duality. His astonishing film, Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino, he states, was created as a way to allow others to experience ancient eco-spiritual ways of life, understand animistic consciousness and help foster personal and collective well-being.
