The Diamond Center

The concept of the Pulse is the culmination of all of Dr. Diamond’s years in medicine, psychiatry, complementary medicine, holistic healing and music. Drumming is used as a metaphor on how to play and move with the Pulse of life.

Like the Tao, the Way, the Pulse signifies the movement of life from which all things flow.

Here, Dr. Diamond applies this concept, encouraging each of us to play the drums to enhance our sense of how the Pulse actually feels. For once we feel this movement in music, we can increasingly feel it in other aspects of life.

This book represents a major step forward in our understanding of drumming as a therapeutic modality and life-enhancing practice, for it is knit together by an underlying philosophy that embraces all of music and healing.
The Way of the Pulse is about how to live our lives with joy and love - using drumming as a metaphor. For as in music, so in life.

And it is for the musician, from beginner to professional, to help him realize that there is this other way. That life - and music - can come from the soul.

This book is for all who know in their hearts that there is more to life and music than just playing and living on the beat. For those who wish to live and play the other way, the Way of the Pulse - one with Spirit. For all who want to love through music, to live as Music.

And it is for all who have yearned to play the drums - and that is everyone! To play for enjoyment, and more - to play for Life and Love - with Spirit! This is the way to begin.

Professional Reviews

The Book Reader Fall/Winter 1999/2000
"I used to practice Medicine, but now - Music!" Diamond has discovered that, of all musical instruments, the drums are the most easy to play on The Pulse and most easily raise Life Energy. He captures his own life-long interest in drumming and here reveals their impact on Preventive Medicine. Drumming always has been deeply rooted in man's spiritual endeavors. Its simplest metaphor is the heartbeat. Diamond shows how to make drumming therapeutic. A special communication with rhythms and melodies found in the soul. Imagine this amalgam of trained clinical psychiatrist and primitive drummer. That's a powerful unity! It's not all spiritual. For many sufferers, the physical movement is valuable exercise. Diamond relates his Pulse to Tao, borrows from more poetry. "Play with joy, with a smile." Full of life energy.

Remo D. Bellie, President, Remo, Inc.
This book demonstrates the genuine interest and passions Dr. Diamond has shown by his continuing research into drums and drumming as a quality of life enhancement option for everyone.

John Aldridge, Managing Editor, Not-So-Modern Drummer
An inspirational book which implores us to look for ways to incorporate the pulse of music into our drumming and lives in a more spiritual way. My thanks for putting this almost indescribable concept into words.
