Introduction Jaime Meyer is a playwright, drummer, father, husband and gardener who holds a seminary degree in theology and the arts. Since 1984 Meyer has studied cross-cultural shamanism, mysticism and the spiritual uses of drumming from many cultures. Among others, he has studied with Ailo Gaup, Martin Prechtel and Sandra Ingermann. He has also completed a two-year Celtic shamanism training with Tom Cowan. Twenty of his plays have been produced in various cities across the USA . He co-founded the first theatre in the world for the Hmong community (a refugee population from Laos and Vietnam ) and managed it for ten years, mentoring dozens of writers and actors, and playing to over 200,000 people, most of whom had never seen live theatre before. The Minneapolis Star Tribune calls Meyer’s writing “…enormously seductive. It’s farfetched whimsy with thickly textured thoughtfulness. It’s like metaphysical cartoons on speed.”
