New Limited Edition Oak Moon Winter Solstice Drums

These special edition drums are now sold out.

 
 

We are going to birth some of our special edition drums at the time of the next Full Moon and Winter Solstice.

We will create these drums at the time of the December full moon, just days before the Winter Solstice. Then, as each drum dries, we will awaken them in a special ceremony on the day of the Winter Solstice.

We are only able to make a limited number, as each drum takes some time to birth. These will be 16-inch shamanic drums made from dark reindeer hide and an oak hoop. There is a choice of three different styles. Each style has a crystal set in the handle that amplifies the energy of this time of year.

Now is the time to consider pre-ordering yours, and here are all the details you will need to decide whether one of these drums is calling you. We are also offering a three-month payment plan.

Working with the Oak Moon

Each of the Full Moons has a name, and our English ancestors in Medieval England called this the Oak Moon. To reflect this our carpenter has made the wooden hoops from English oak rather than our usual ash. Nicola will decorate the inside of each rim with a painted oak leaf motif.

The underlying energy of Oak tells of inner strength and will lead the way to truth, bringing personal power and vision. Oak energy is also known to provide a gateway to understanding.

Oak restores the will and self-determination that may have become weakened in times of stress, and restores faith in the vision of what you are working towards.

The Energy of The Winter Solstice

At this special time of year, the sun rises in the same place on the horizon for three days, preparing for its journey back across our skies towards the height of summer.

Everything is still, and everything is at rest. The old year has died, and the way is now prepared for the rebirth of activity and expansion into the outer world.

As the sun stills itself and prepares for its renewal, your drum will be awakened in a special Winter Solstice ceremony, as the sun begins to make its way back across the horizon once again. 

You and Your Drum

Your drum will have been made specifically for you and holds the energy which speaks to you most at this time.

It is your sacred tool providing an extension to you for all your healing work, whether it be self-healing, healing others or helping heal the Earth.

Please be aware that every drum is unique and the patterning and colouration of both the reindeer hide and the crystal will differ slightly from each other.

Use your drum as a vehicle to journey to the other realms, and connect in with your spirit guides and helpers. Journey on the beat of the drum.

Use it to call in those specific qualities which you seek most in order to find your deep inner knowing and authentic self.

Calm yourself. It's been scientifically proven that people who drum see a drop in their stress and anxiety, as well as reduced blood pressure, increased brain white matter and cognitive function, reduced pain, increased immunity. Regular exposure to the beat of your drum can also help overcome socio-emotional challenges.

We have three Oak Moon Winter Solstice drums to choose from
each holding a carefully considered crystal to compliment and amplify the energy at this time.

Intuition - White Moonstone

Moonstone is a stone of mystery. It enhances the intuitive side of the mind. It has been used for centuries to connect with the energy and power of the moon.

White Moonstone represents the energy of the full moon at the height of its power, enhancing vision, perception and dream work.

We have named this drum ‘Intuition’. It has an emerald green ring to represent the brightness of the spring oak leaves glistening in the sun, and a grey furry handle to make it comfortable to hold. 

Stilness - Blue Tiger's Eye

Blue Tigers Eye is also known as Hawks Eye. It has a beautiful deep blue colour, like the night sky, and is a very soothing stone as it aids in reducing stress, increasing calm and easing anxiety.

It supports speaking with clarity and acting with integrity. We have named this drum after the still quiet energy of the Winter Solstice. It will be created with a deep dark blue ring to match the crystal, and finished with a grey furry handle.

Strength - Sunstone

Sunstone is a stone of personal power and freedom and reflects the qualities of solar light. It holds the energy of openness, warmth, strength and mental clarity, and can kindle the fire of leadership within.

It can help melt away fears of self-doubt, enabling us to move forward, drawing on our inner strength to achieve things we thought we might not be capable of.

We have named this drum after both the strength that we see in the mighty Oak, and the time of year it was birthed. It has a warm red ring and a brown furry handle.

Your drum will be made from reindeer hide and will be 16 inches in diameter.

Our 16 inch drums are our most popular sized drums as they are easy to hold and have a lovely deep tone.

The hide is from reindeer that run wild on the Scandinavian tundra. Each year they are brought down and the older ones carefully selected for the cull in a tradition that has spanned thousands of years. Their meat is an important food source, and their skins are a by-product of this process. Usually light in colour these hides have been dyed with an organic dye to give them this beautiful dark mottled texture.

The overarching energy of Reindeer is perseverance. The reindeer has an incredible ability to preserve under challenging environments, and across great distances too, some travelling as far as 3,000 miles in one season.

Their energy teaches us that great things are possible in our lives. In their surefootedness, they can support us to utilise our internal gifts so that we can be as equally sure-footed in any situation. This helps us to easily walk through any challenges which may come our way as we walk our path to realise our dreams.

Within each drum, we embed a crystal and craft a fluffy handle, which makes the drum comfortable to hold for those longer drumming sessions.

 

The Birthing of Your Drum

We will birth your drum at the time of the December full moon, which is the Oak Moon. Then, as it dries, we will carry out a special awakening ceremony on the day of the Winter Solstice, just a few days later. During this ceremony, we will call in the four directions Earth, Air, Fire and Water, smudge your drum with a special awakening incense and call in the Spirit of the Drum.

To birth your drum, we spend time preparing your hoop by painting an oak leaf motif on the inside. We finish it with a layer of beeswax from rescued bees in Lancashire to bring out the beautiful grain in the wood.

The timber which makes the drum frame is sourced from an Oak tree grown in England and is made locally by a carpenter who lives in the next town along from our home.

Sourcing locally and as ethically as possible is something that is really important to us, and we take care to understand where all of our materials come from.

We will bind the hoop in coloured suede, cut out the reindeer hide and then carefully craft your drum.

Once your drum has fully dried, we will fix the crystal in its handle. It will be ready for posting during the week between Christmas and New Years day. We will arrange for the courier Hermes to deliver it to you to arrive within the first week of the new year.

100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

We are really excited about this opportunity and are very much looking forward to this birthing process.

We want to be sure that you are happy with your choice, and so all our drums come with a 7-day money back guarantee.

This will allow you time to hold your drum in your hands and hear it’s voice, so you can be sure that you are right for each other.

Love from Drum Buyers:

"I also love, love, love how much care and attention my drum seemed to have gotten at its original home"

“My deciding factor was intuitive. It was the right drum at the right time - and still is!

I also love, love, love how much care and attention my drum seemed to have gotten at its original home. That made all the difference.

It felt personal and cosy to have a drum from you.”

MELISSA  //  Drum Buyer

"I never knew I could love a drum so much. I hope she will be with me until I die, and then be passed to the next person honoured to be her friend"

"I bought a drum from you about a year ago. It's a 16" deer skin with a crimson tension ring and a black tourmaline in the handle.

I just want to tell you how wonderful this drum is. When I first received her I journeyed to meet all who had participated in the making. What a web of connections!

Far beyond you, or the animals involved, to those who mined the metal and the tourmaline, fed the animals, cared for the trees. A lesson in the web of connections. In the journey she told me to call her Echo Moon Stalker.

I have used her for journeying both alone and in my local shamanic circle and her voice is strong and beautiful. I never knew I could love a drum so much. I hope she will be with me until I die, and then be passed to the next person honoured to be her friend.

Thank you so much for this blessing. With gratitude and joy."

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing drum. I didn't realise how much it was going to change my life"

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing drum. I didn't realise how much it was going to change my life!

I've been looking on youtube for basic lessons and i really appreciated one that advised to hug the drum, it feels so nurturing to me! The vibrations are amazing, so healing, I cant stop playing it, everytime I feel a bit whacked I play and I feel so energised afterwards.

The beautiful thing about it is knowing how much love and care went into sourcing the materials and making it with such presence, along with the beautiful cleansing at the end.

You can really sense that in the drum and I think it makes a huge difference to the feel, and perhaps even the sound of it. So with absolute heartfelt gratitude to you and all other beings who brought this amazing drum to life. Thank you."
